Overview
Climb aboard and see London’s sights from above. This tour is perfect for people who are short on time, who want to see it all, and who like an adventure. During the flight you follow the path of the River Thames and see the city’s storied bridges and architectural wonders. Don’t worry about waiting in line or paying a fortune for entrance fees and bring aerial photos home with you.
What to Expect
Choose from a 10 or 20-minute flight, meet your pilot at Battersea helipad, and have a safety briefing before climbing on board the 6-person helicopter.
Once you take off, look out the large glass windows and see London from above. Your pilot narrates the sights so you get context on what you’re seeing below.
The journey takes you along the path of the River Thames, lined with historic and modern architectural wonders like The Gherkin, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, and the London Eye.
Your flight path also takes you past Wembley Stadium, and the London Olympic Stadium and then loops back so you have a second chance to snap photos above the river. 
The tour ends back on the helipad in Battersea.

Very disappointing for the price.

The staff were friendly and helpful but we were crammed into the middle two rear seats with very limited visibility to the front and the sides. I'm sure they will reply with the usual "the pilot always chooses the seats" reply but it seemed to...More
