Touring England’s History in a Luton Campervan
England is undoubtedly well-known by its rich history and fascinating heritage. Since the most ancient times, several civilisations have arrived to this land, shaping the country’s culture and leaving a unique sample of this past on the numerous monuments, ruins and other buildings dotted all over the English landscape. By providing both transport and accommodation in one, a campervan is the best alternative to explore England’s built heritage at your own pace and with all the comforts you need on the road. Imagine, for a second, that it’s rainy and windy outside… then just pick a cosy place to park up, make a warm cup of tea on board and gaze at the views whilst keeping yourself warm thanks to your campervans heating system. When the sun comes back, it’s as easy as hitting the road again and continue to tick off your list of things to see and do! All of Easirent Campervans come fully equipped so you can explore and learn the country’s history from your home on wheels. Just like the best BBC documentary, but live!
Whether you’re travelling with your family, partner or group of friends, hire a campervan from our Easirent Luton Depot conveniently at the Airport, and drive through England’s past. From Prehistory to Contemporary Age, I have put together a list of must-see historical sites:
Stonehenge – Dating back anywhere from 3000 BC to 2000 BC, drive your Easirent campervan eastwards from our Luton depot to this world famous stone circle inspiring all kinds of amazing legends!
Roman Baths – Not too far from Stonehenge, point your Easirent campervan towards the beautiful city of Bath. Park up your Camper, relax at the hot springs and move on to the next step of your adventure!
Tintagel – Although real for some ones and pure legend for others, I can’t deny that King Arthur is a key character in the history of Britain. Tintagel, at the Cornish Coast was named as the iconic hero’s birthplace in the 12th century. Set against the backdrop of rolling cliffs and turquoise waters, the castle is worth a visit. After exploring Merlin’s Cave or the spectacular St Nectan’s Kieve, cook on board your Easirent campervan, have dinner by the sea and share Arthur’s myths and legends with your children!
Canterbury Cathedral – Go in your Easirent campervan to Kent and visit one of the oldest and greatest Christian buildings in England. Founded in the 7th century by St Augustine, Canterbury was a major medieval monastery and pilgrimage destination until 1538, when King Henry VIII, heading the English Reformation, despoiled the shrine of St Thomas Becket.
Stratford-upon-Avon – The Elizabethan era is known as the golden age in English history due to the apogee of the music, architecture, arts and literature. And when mentioning English Literature, William Shakespeare is certainly the first name that comes to my mind. Drive towards Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of England’s national poet and take a stroll around this quaint parish and its surroundings.
Ironbridge Gorge – This region holds a World Heritage status for its contribution to the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century. Currently, it has become a popular family attraction with several museums with machines, factories, workshops, craftsmen and costumed demonstrators that will bring your family back to the start of the modern times!
White Cliffs of Dover – Before returning your campervan to our Easirent Luton depot, stop by the breath-taking chalk cliffs and explore the Second World War tunnels that have been recently opened to visitors.

Euro 2016 Campervan Hire Tour
Under one year to go until the Europa league kicks off around France. 24 National Football teams competing in 10 different locations throughout the Country. This cup hasn’t been held in France since 1984, and the French Football Federation (FFF) are proud and excited to once again host this prestigious event!
Germany are the favourites for this cup, winning the World Cup in 2014, as well as being FIFAs number 1 team! Spain won Euro 2008 and 2012, as well as the world cup in 2010, so they will come out fighting in order to keep their Euro title! France themselves are strong contenders. Imagine the buzz around the country as they work their way up to the top! One thing you can guarantee is that you will see some outstanding football wherever you go!
When the time comes, people from all over the world will flock to France in order to see some sporting history, and the atmosphere in these 10 hosting cities will be fantastic. But due to the large amount of Fans going to watch the football as well as all the football teams themselves, the accommodation prices during these games will increase dramatically. At best, you can expect an expensive trip, at worst, you won’t have anywhere to sleep at all.
So this is where Easirent come into it. Hire a Campervan from us at our Luton depot and make your way over to France via Ferry. Create your own Campervan hire tour out of the different cities where the various games will be held at. And with tickets for the games starting at €25, it would make for a great adventure for any Football fan. With the extra money you will save camping, and the freedom you gain from your Campervan, you can make your trip to France more than just a Football fix!
Luckily for you, France has a massive camping community. You only need to google one of the hosting cities to see there are a number campsites in the area with access to the city, and usually with great facilities and even better prices. Instead of paying the €100+ for a hotel, campsites will cost closer to €25. That’s a steal, right?! Not only this, when you’re not watching the football, you can be out seeing some French country side, and depending on your campsite, you may have a swimming pool, restaurant, bar and a whole host of other facilities, which you may find more preferable to the hectic cramped cities during this time.
