Arrange car hire in Loughborough with TravelSupermarket to open up a world of adventures in England. Sitting in the East Midlands' county of Leicestershire and within just minutes of the M1 motorway, Loughborough is well placed for travels both near and far.

Car rental is also useful for getting around town with ease and at a pace that suits you...

Known for its sporting university and as a vibrant market town, Loughborough makes a great base for visitors who hope to see more of the East Midlands region. There's certainly a lot to see. From the cities of Derby, Nottingham and Leicester, to the nearby National Space Centre, plus parklands and stately homes - this eastern patch of England serves up a tempting taste of the nation without being overrun by the tourist hordes that flock to other parts of the UK

In Loughborough itself, you can spend time and money at a variety of centrally-located and charming independent stores as well as a wide range of high street favourites. The restaurant scene is eclectic, with a hearty nod to nearby Leicester, which is often voted as the curry capital of Britain, and the pub and café scene is welcoming. 

The town is home to the Great Central Railway, which is the UK's only main line heritage railway that operates on a double track. This means that you can see steam engines chugging magnificently past one another - a true echo of the area's heritage. You can hop aboard a steam train from Loughborough every weekend and on selected days in summer.

Charnwood Forest can be accessed just a few minutes south of Loughborough and a hire car is ideal if you want to visit this vast area. More barren and rock-strewn than the name suggests, here you can take bracing walks over the rolling hills, visit historic sites and tour country parks, such as Bradgate Park. At the heart of Charnwood Forest and home to herds of deer, Bradgate Park is a great spot for summer picnics. 

Having a car in Loughborough makes it easy to see the sights, as not all of the attractions are located centrally in town. Book your Loughborough car rental deal with TravelSupermarket and then collect your vehicle at a location in the downtown area. To compare prices and find a great deal on car rental, use the search tool on TravelSupermarket.
