19th January, 2017 | Article By The London Helicopter

From the ground, London’s a breathtaking, thriving metropolis that attracts tourists seeking culture, history, and much more. But from the sky the capital takes on a whole new atmosphere. A bird’s eye view gives you a chance to see the historic landmarks and sights of London from a unique perspective.

The hotspots of the capital are well known across the world and seeing them from a helicopter tour only serves to make them even more impressive. From the sky, you can view iconic landmarks like never before and take in the incredible city life that fills London. The London Helicopter is the only helicopter tour service to operate from a central London location – so you don’t have to take time out of your day to travel to us before taking to the skies above the capital.

The company offers a range of incredible London tours from a 12-minute trip of a lifetime to a 30-minute private tour that allows you to fully experience and appreciate the capital from the air. Whichever tour you choose you’ll get uninterrupted panoramic views of one of the most recognised skylines in the world and a chance to see iconic landmarks, modern and historic alike, including Buckingham Palace and the London Eye, from over 1,000 feet in the sky.

Setting off from Battersea you’ll follow the famous Thames River to take in the sights that line the water, from the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park past the famous Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and Trafalgar Square, right into the financial district with views of the now iconic skyscraper the Shard, as part of the London Buzz route. For even more incredible sights, visitors can choose the London Sights route, which follows the river even further to give you a spectacular view of famous landmarks like the Tower of London and London Bridge.

The London Max route is perfect for those that want to take in everything London has to offer from a bird’s eye view. This incredible 30-minute tour extends as far as the beautiful Syon House and Kew Gardens all the way to the instantly recognisable Dome. While travelling between the points you’ll witness some of the most impressive views and famous London sights – St Pauls Cathedral, the Marble Arch, and Richmond Park to name just a few.

The London Helicopter tours aren’t just limited to the thriving city life either. Guests can take advantage of specialist tours and even make requests if they have something particular in mind. Photographers will love experiencing an ‘open door’ flight offering stunning, unobstructed views, while the Kew Gardens Picnic Tour combines the thrill of flight with a luxury al fresco dining experience for the ultimate London adventure. For history lovers, The London Helicopter can even give them a fresh and incredible view of Highclere Castle, where hit show Downton Abbey was filmed, and ancient Stonehenge.

The London Helicopter operates from a central London location at the London Heliport in Battersea, making planning a memorable city experience simple. The location’s easy to get to via public transport or taxi. Clapham Junction train station is just a 10-minute walk from the heliport and visitors can head to the Vauxhall or Sloane Square tube stations and take a 15-minute taxi to The London Helicopter.

The tours from the London Helicopter are the perfect way to create a truly memorable sightseeing experience of one of the world’s most famous cities, whether you make a booking for yourself or as a gift for a loved one. To find out more and book your incredible London helicopter experience visit
