The seaside town of Blyth in eastern England is located about 21kms northeast of Newcastle upon Tyne by car hire in Blyth. The port of Blythe was first established in the 12th century, but the town has successfully regenerated itself during the last decade after the decline of its traditional shipbuilding and coal mining industries.
Since Blyth has no passenger rail links and few other public transportation options, the best way to explore everything the town has to offer is car rental in Blyth. Cheap car hire in Blyth is most likely to be found at the town's Sixt office or another car hire operation known as Blythe Car Hire.
One of the attractions which has revitalised Blyth is the Keel Row Shopping Centre, open since 1991 and home to several High Street shops. Even more unique shopping is available each Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday at Blyth's market, and a 15m sculpture paying tribute to Blyth's coal mining past named 'Spirit of the Staithes' greets visitors to its serene quayside.
Blyth's market also hosts the Blyth Town Summer Fair each July and the Blyth Town Christmas Fayre in December. Both events include live music, fairground rides, and a wide variety of other entertainment.
Blyth's Ridley Park was recently renovated over a century after it first opened in 1904 and now includes an improved playground and water play area for children.
Frequently asked questions

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
