From modern skyscrapers to historic monuments, London is full of striking landmarks, and the iconic skyline looks even more dramatic from overhead. Once you’ve taken a walking tour along the scenic Thames waterfront and paid a visit to London’s top sights, treat yourself to an alternative view of the city, with a thrilling helicopter flight over the British capital.
Set off from Battersea for a 20-minute flight that follows the route of the River Thames, and get your camera ready for stunning bird’s-eye views of all the city’s most popular attractions. You’ll pass over the legendary Wembley Stadium, enjoy aerial vistas of the magnificent Buckingham Palace grounds and get an expansive view of London’s tallest and newest building, The Shard - an eye-catching tower designed to look like a shard of glass piercing the sky.
Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, St Paul’s Cathedral and the London Eye are all unmistakable from above, and as the flight loops back around to the takeoff point, you’ll have an extra chance to spot anything you missed the first time around. You could even charter a private helicopter flight and share the experience with your family, cozy up on a romantic flight for two or settle into the seat beside the pilot for the ultimate front-row seat.
