An Alternative View of London


An Alternative View of London

See London like never before - take in the sights not normally seen whilst sightseeing in London, travel upriver from Westminster pier to Battersea heliport.
You will take in sights such as Lambeth Palace, Tate Britain, the new Diplomatic Quarter of Nine Elms and Battersea’s Peace Pagoda before travelling beneath one of the prettiest bridges in West London, the Grade II listed Albert Bridge, with its ornate appearance including lanterns and pagodas.
Sample speed and twists and turns on your Thamesjet as we make our way to the heliport in Battersea. We dock at Plantation Wharf, just a 5 minute walk away from heliport for the next leg of your journey.
Your group will then enjoy a private 20 minute flight with The London Helicopter Company that offers uninterrupted panoramic views and the opportunity to see London landmarks from a totally unique perspective.
