Take a trip to the north east of England. Book car hire in Sunderland to get the most out of your city visit and to see the surrounding sights.

Sunderland car rental enables visitors to get around this northern city with ease...


Sitting on the banks of the River Wear, it's sometimes hard to believe that Sunderland was once a gritty, industrial city - heavily dependent on coal mining, the coal trade and ship building - and black with smog and grime. Today the polished glass buildings, refurbished shipyards and the Stadium of Light stand as evidence of the huge but thoughtful redevelopment of the area.

There's much to explore in and around Sunderland and having a hire car at your disposal means that it is easy to see the sights, wherever you are staying.

Consider a trip to the Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens. Take in the stunningly modern structure and then tour the museum, which travels from Sunderland's prehistoric past to its strikingly-fresh present, before seeing a superb collection in the art gallery and touring the gardens, where thousands of flowers and plants put nature on the map in the city centre. The National Glass Centre will also captivate you for a few hours.

Football fans are dazzled by the Stadium of Light, which sits on the edge of the Wear. Home to Sunderland AFC, the venue also hosts music concerts. Look out for the mining lamp near the entrance to remind visitors of both the mining past and the bright future of the city.

Pick up your rental car at one of the downtown locations in central Sunderland. To find the best deals on car hire, use the price-comparison tool on TravelSupermarket.
