Full description
Enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience in London and take off from the heliport in Battersea to see the city’s landscape from up high.

You will follow the route of the River Thames, flying from Putney in the west to Greenwich in the east. Look down on some of London’s favorite monuments in the outer districts, such as Wembley Stadium, Stamford Bridge, and the Olympic Arena.

Cross from west London’s Earls Court and Olympia exhibition halls to the Dome and Excel Centre in the east. You will get privileged views of landmark attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tate Modern along the way.

Look down on the Financial District and the new skyscrapers that are changing the city skyline, such as the Gherkin and the Shard. Marvel at buildings that date back centuries, including the Royal Naval College, National Maritime Museum and Greenwich Observatory.

En route you will discover just how green London can be, as you fly over the royal gardens of Hyde Park, Green Park, and St. James’s Park, as well as the common land in Blackheath.

Available as a group or private option, the narrated flight (English only) is ideal for a special celebration, or for a unique opportunity to see London from an alternative angle.
