When we think of London, we often visualise iconic landmarks like the London Eye, Big Ben, and the River Thames from a ground-level perspective. Yet there’s another, vastly under-explored vantage point from which to witness the grandeur of the United Kingdom’s capital city—the sky. Offering a bird’s-eye view of the sprawling metropolis below, a helicopter ride experience over London isn’t just an adventure; it’s a redefinition of how we interact with urban landscapes.

Approx 60 mins with 30 mins flying time
The total duration of this one-of-a-kind journey is approximately 60 minutes. However, those aren’t just any 60 minutes; they are a carefully curated blend of thrill, education, and sheer awe. In this hour, you will spend half—30 exhilarating minutes—airborne. From the moment the helicopter lifts off, freeing itself from the bounds of gravity, you are treated to a visual feast.
Swooping over the Thames, you’ll see London in a way that’s impossible from the ground. Iconic structures like the Marco Pierre White Shard, the Gherkin, and Buckingham Palace all lie below you; their majesty is now more apparent than ever. London’s parks, like Hyde Park and Regent’s Park, suddenly look like beautiful patches of emerald set into a mosaic of greys, browns, and blues. Those 30 minutes of flight offer a lifetime’s worth of awe-inspiring memories.
Room for Everyone: Available for Up to 4 People
This is not an adventure you need to undertake alone. The helicopter seats up to four people, making it a versatile experience adaptable to various social settings.

Customisation is key to making any experience memorable, and your take-off location is part of that equation.

Whether you opt for a take-off from the vibrant city centre, with its buzz of activity, or prefer the calmer suburbs as your starting point, your helicopter experience caters to your convenience and preference.
Direct Line to the Skies: Communicate with the Pilot in the Air
Flying high above London’s iconic skyline isn’t just a visual experience; it’s an educational journey. Equipped with a headset, you can directly communicate with the pilot. Ever wondered what that group of buildings is called or the history behind a particular monument? Feel free to ask your pilot, who’s not just a certified professional responsible for your safety but also your aerial tour guide. The dialogue doesn’t have to be one-sided, either; if you wish to linger over a certain landmark for a few extra moments, your pilot can make it happen.
