  • For a long time I have been planning a sightseeing flight over the city of London, because I just want to see everything "from above". Now it was time - and it was just CLASS! 20 minutes of sightseeing flight, everything important seen and photographed - and that's addictive! The "journey" to the heliport in Battersea is a bit longer - but if you take enough time in advance or afterwards, you can explore other nice corners on the ground along the Thames. In the heli, two lighter persons sit in front of the pilot, at the back you sit next to each other for four. I could sit at the window because by chance only 2 of us took 4 pictures. I felt a bit tight, but it worked. The use of a large telephoto lens on the window (DSLR) is impractical, because you can quickly push the disc (by the way: hardly any reflexes from the discs on the photos!). A smaller one is completely sufficient (15-85mm). The altitude is about 300 m. The pilot also explains everything quite in detail. So: who likes to fly - absolutely make such a sightseeing flight! It's all the more worthwhile if you already know London quite well "from below".

  • Definitely one of MUST To Do activities in London. Just make sure the weather is as clear and nice.
  • Had an excellent trip this afternoon, only downside is the time flies by so quickly, so much to see. A warm welcome when we arrived to check-in and, because we were early, we took advantage of a discount offered for refreshments at the Crown Plaza hotel next door (very enjoyable). The flight itself was excellent, the pilot gave a thorough commentary of the sites, whilst also communicating with air traffic control which I found interesting. If you are able to take advantage of this trip, I would highly recommend it, top notch :)
