Explore Oldbury

The most popular attraction in Oldbury is the park on Oldbury Hill, exhibiting beautiful autumnal colours in the leaves of the mixed woodland, which also has a large Iron Age fort which tourists can walk around.

Although there aren’t too many sights to speak of in the town itself, there are a couple of historic attractions in neighbouring Ightham village that are well worth a visit. Ightham Mote is a superb moated manor house nestled in a sunken valley and dating from 1330. The beautiful St. Peter's Church and its adjacent cemetery of crooked headstones date from the 16th century.

A short drive west on the A25 takes you to the historic town of Sevenoaks, where many people come to visit the immense baronial estate of Knole. Knole House was transformed into a palace in 1456 by Archbishop Thomas Bourchier, for himself and succeeding archbishops of Canterbury. Intriguingly, it was designed to numerically match the calendar with 7 courtyards, 52 staircases and 365 rooms.

Tonbridge Castle (pictured) is a lovely day out for the family and history lovers, and is located only 16 minutes drive directly south of Oldbury, along the A227. Car hire is a great option for those wishing to see as much as possible during their stay. Just over an hours drive south is the lovely beach resort of Brighton, which can also be reached via public services, although you will have to keep an eye out for return journey bus times.

Transport

Oldbury is easily accessible by car. From London, follow the M25 south to Sevenoaks, and then head east on A25 for a few miles until you reach Oldbury. Oldbury’s proximity to London means that you are spoiled for choice if arriving by air at one of the many international airports in the Greater London area.

The closest train station to Oldbury is Borough Green, just east of Ightham Village. Trains to and from London’s Victoria Station leave at least hourly (duration 45 minutes).

Buses and taxis operate throughout Oldbury, although the majority of attractions can be explored on foot.

Frequently asked questions

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? 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. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice.

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation.
