Where are we, where can you go, where can you stay in and around Warwickshire and The Cotswolds?

Between Stratford upon Avon and Warwick
The Open Road Warwickshire is situated right in the Heart of England.  We are based between Stratford upon Avon and Warwick and are well served by both the road and rail networks, making us the perfect location to hire out a classic car for driving around Warwickshire, The North Cotswolds and the West Midlands.


We are only 1/2 mile from Junction 15 of the M40 motorway (the Warwick junction - known locally as the Longbridge Roundabout) running between London and Birmingham.


By road we are about:

  • 30 minutes from Birmingham Airport
  • 40 minutes from the centre of Birmingham
  • 40 minutes from Oxford
  • 90 minutes from the West of London 
  • 2 hours from Central London


About 80% of the population of England lives within a 2 hour drive of The Open Road's classic car hire base in Warwickshire, making us one of the most convenient classic car hire companies in the country.


We are close to railway stations at Royal Leamington Spa, Stratford upon Avon, Warwick and Warwick Parkway.


There are trains from Warwick and Warwick Parkway, via Chiltern Railways to London Marylebone and from Leamington Spa to London Euston on Virgin Trains.  Trains run about every 30 minutes during the day on weekdays and almost as frequently at evenings and weekends with a journey time into London of about 90 minutes.


We are happy to collect our classic car hire customers from any of the local railway stations, subject to workload.  Failing that, there are taxi ranks at Leamington Spa, Warwick and Stratford stations.


We regularly have customers flying into London Heathrow airport to take out our cars.  While we are only about a 90 minute drive from Heathrow airport getting here by public transport isn't that easy. To reach us by train you either have to take a train to Reading and then change trains to Leamington, or a train into Central London and then out again.  There is an airport bus service which can deliver you direct from Heathrow to Warwick Parkway station about 4 miles from us, but this only runs every couple of hours.


Many customers have found the easiest way of getting here is to hire a car from Hertz at Heathrow, on a one way hire basis and drop it off at Hertz at Stratford train station.


If you are unsure of the best way of getting to us, please call and we can advise you.
