Ilford is situated in North East London and is a predominately residential and business area with fast roads into and out of the city and Essex. Arranging car hire in Ilford will allow you to make the most of the wider area and to easily access this part of the capital.

Lying only nine miles from the centre of London, Ilford offers an alternative to staying in the capital and is ideally located for routes out to Essex...

Ilford itself is not really a destination that people tend to head to unless they are visiting friends and family or are going there for business purposes. It lacks major tourist attractions, but it is well located for other areas of the capital.

With such relentless building for residential and business needs, it is nice to have somewhere like Valentine's Park to visit. The mansion, with a small museum and gardens, has been recently restored and it's a great place for a walk to see the wetland areas or to have a picnic, as well as for joggers to enjoy a run. South Park is also a great park to visit in the area.

Redbridge Museum tells the story of local people in Redbridge and Ilford and has an active programme with local school and groups.
There are also extensive shopping facilities in the area, as well as hotels for overnight stays and local cafes and restaurants. 

London City (LCY) is the nearest airport to Ilford, along with London Stansted (STN) and London Luton (LTN). You can pre-book your hire car to pick up at the airport or at various downtown locations in Ilford itself. To find the best price on car rental in Ilford, use TravelSupermarket's search tool to the left.
