Formerly part of Essex, the town of Romford now sits within the boundaries of Greater London. Car hire in Romford allows visitors to travel around the area with ease, seeing the town's best bits and a host of attractions that can be reached in less than an hour by road.

From the beaches of Essex to the star turns of the capital, organising car rental in Romford lets you explore at your leisure...

Around 15 miles north east of London, Romford is a lively and developed town with a wealth of amenities. It is an extremely well-connected area, with fast and easy access on to the city's orbital motorway, the M25. This means that you can be away from Greater London in just minutes and accessing some of the more natural beauty spots of England's south east. 

Dotted with pleasant and green open spaces, Romford is a nice place to spend some time. It has a well-established shopping scene, with a few good centres crammed with stores, plus the age-old Romford Market, which has been serving the needs of local traders and customers for some 750 years. It started life as a sheep market, though these days you can pick up just about everything you need in terms of household goods, clothing and accessories (no sheep). It opens every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Move through the crowds to reach the area underneath the Tollgate House Clock Tower, which usually hosts some kind of street entertainment. 

Romford is part of the London Borough of Havering and you can find out more about the area's history and traditions at the Havering Museum, which sits in the former site of the Romford Brewery. There's a theatre in Romford, the Brookside Theatre, and another - the Queen's Theatre - just a 10-minute drive away in the town of Hornchurch. 

Pre-booking car hire is likely to save you money and ensure that you get your preferred vehicle type. You can see a range of great value deals when you enter your requirements into the search tool on TravelSupermarket. There are convenient downtown locations from which you can collect your car.
