30 Minute Helicopter Tour of London for Two from Essex
An unmissable chance to share a view of London that's usually reserved for birds and professional pilots, this helicopter experience for two takes place in either a Twin Squirrel or a Long Ranger. Both of these helicopters are extremely agile, able to take off vertically, move forward, backwards, sideways or even just hover safely in the air, so this won't be a quick fly-over! Together, take in unforgettable bird's-eye views of iconic London landmarks including Buckingham Palace, The O2 Arena, Tower of London and more. And watch the sun glitter off the meandering Thames as it flows through the capital.
