Be sure you plan on how to get there. Away from city. We took bus that drops you off right in front of the street. But from there, a little more confusing. You have to walk up an alley and then make a left. We just asked a business on the corner how to get there. Once there, everyone friendly. Of course, amazing views while in the air. Filmed it all! Even though it is a large helicopter, they find it necessary to divide people up, so don't plan on sitting together or by a window. Never experienced that before....and we have been in helicopters all over the world. They do fly by all the wonderful sites, and the pilot points everything out as you go. They had to cancel original flight due to the weather. They worked with us to reschedule a time that would work for us. We appreciated that.Thankfully, our last day in London the weather was awesome! Made it perfect for the flight.

Our original flight was postponed due to thunderstorms. The London Helicopter staff telephoned, kept us informed, and booked us on the next convenient flight. An excellent trip well worth taking.

Simply amazing! What a way to see London. The helicopter goes slowly long the Thames and back so there is plenty of time to see all of your favourite sights and take loads of photos. The pilot points out lots of landmarks, including the London Eye, St Pauls, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, the Shard and the London Eye. For a trip to London this is the ultimate way to see how the city fits together and see bit of London you didn't know existed!
