The town of Barrow, formally known as Barrow-in-Furness, is located at the end of northeast England's Furness peninsula. Barrow's convenient seaside location no more than two or three hours away from nine major cities in the United Kingdom by car rental in Barrow makes it an ideal base for a holiday in northern England and southern Scotland.
Cheap car hire in Barrow is highly recommended to explore its surrounding area as the nearest major airport, Blackpool International Airport, is quite a distance away and other public transportation options are hard to find. Car rental in Barrow, however, is much easier to locate at the town's two Avis branches and wide variety of other car hire companies.
Although Barrow is better known as a working class town than a tourist destination, the town is working hard to change its reputation. Barrow's waterfront is in the middle of a major renovation and its Dock Museum describing Barrow's proud shipbuilding history is already quite popular.
Other recommended Barrow attractions include the Hollywood Park leisure facility, green Barrow Park, many golf courses, and a wide variety of shopping options at its indoor market and Portland Walk Shopping Centre. Furness Abbey, formerly England's second richest cisterian abbey, is also worth visiting.
The famous holiday destination of the Lake District, the border with Scotland, the resort of Blackpool, and the city of Manchester are just a few of the popular destinations less than three hours away by car hire in Barrow.
