Live it up like lords and ladies of the manor with this Mapledurham estate tour by helicopter! On this wonderful day you'll see all the sights from your privileged position in the helicopter as you take off from the grounds and fly up the Thames and around Mapledurham on your eight-mile heli tour.
Mapledurham estate has roots right back to Doomsday and the house you see today is mainly Elizabethan. It might also look familiar, as it is said to be the inspiration for the house in Toad of Toad Hall and a truly imposing house to see as you gaze down from the helicopter. You will also see lovely St Margaret's church and the Old Water Mill, the only flour mill on the Thames in operation and famous for featuring in 'The Eagle Has Landed' film.
Once back on terra firma after your helicopter tour over Mapledurham Estate, there is plenty of time to explore on foot, visiting the manor house, mill and church for a look inside, all included in the price of the experience. Last but by no means least, you will be invited to enjoy a tasty cream tea, with scones freshly baked used from flour ground at the mill on the estate. A superb day out near Reading and Oxford for all ages to enjoy.
