London helicopter tours
If you don't mind bunking up to save a couple of pennies then this is the flight for you. Choose from a 12-minute or 18-minute chopper flight covering the best of the capital’s sights, kicking off in Battersea before you follow the Thames to take in Green Park, Buckingham Palace, The Shard, Big Ben, Olympic Stadium and Wembley Stadium.
Setting off from Redhill Aerodrome, this snappy helicopter tour provides an intriguing view of the city. Flying in from the south, you’ll be able to watch the Surrey countryside morph into skyscrapers and bustling streets. Cast an eye over major London landmarks while you’re up there, including St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.
If you've got a group of mates to ride with, why not charter your own private chopper? Flights start from £1k, but you can split that with up to six people, which works out cheaper than a lot of the shared trips. Taking off in the centre of the city, sweep over the bustling streets to take in all those marvellous views and pinpoint the best London landmarks from above. Get that camera ready – this is prime bragging territory right here.
If you're a bit of an adrenaline junkie, take to the seas (well, river) as well as the skies! Combine your helicopter tour with a high-speed trip down the Thames, taking a rocket boat (yep, they’re fast) from the London Eye to Chelsea Harbour Pier to your waiting ’copter.
