London helicopter sightseeing

A London helicopter sightseeing service has been launched from The Barclays London Heliport in Battersea by London Helicopters Tours Ltd. 

The new London service will bring unrivalled convenience to what is a breathtaking experience.

The helicopter route over London follows the River Thames from Putney in the west to Greenwich in the east, climbing to over 1,000ft above the City’s stunning skyline. During the flight passengers will get to see some of the capital’s most historic landmarks including Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, The Tower of London, and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre and new attractions like The Shard.  Famous sporting venues including Wembley, The Emirates and the Olympic Stadium are also visible from the route.

Flights from the Barclays London Heliport, operated by a variety of helicopters in the company’s fleet, will last for approximately 20 minutes.  Prices per person for what is an unique experience start from £199 and complement similar services offered from Redhill Aerodrome (near Gatwick) where prices start at £129. 

Booking is available on the web in real-time allowing customers to search availability up to 12 months in advance. www.thelondonhelicopter.com
