My partner and I will be traveling to London for the first time! whoohooo! Now, we have booked a hotel in Bromley, which is about 10 miles outside of central London. I read that traveling into central London from the station in Bromley is an easy 16minute train ride. He wants to rent a car though so that we may be able to be on our own schedule and not have to worry about train times... Now I know that trains do not usually run late so if we were looking to stay out late in London would it be a good Idea to rent the car then? Or would paying the extra for a cab be worth it for those few nights we do stay out late? I am just so confused on what to do and I don't even know if my question makes sense. If we do not get the car the we will be getting the 7-day travel card which is fairly cheap for unlimited travel. Is London even a city that stays open late? Should we get the car? I know gas and the car itself are expensive... Help!!
