What Can I Expect

All aboard for these exclusive pleasure flights from Cardiff Heliport! Conveniently located just five minutes from Cardiff city centre, the heliport is literally on the edge of the docks in Cardiff Bay. It's the ideal place to hop in a private heli and tour the Cardiff area and beyond, with two different itineraries on offer.

The ‘Cardiff City’ pleasure flight lasts around 15 minutes. As soon as you're in the air you get a great view of Queen Alexandra, Roath, Atlantic and Bute East Docks. Then there are the Welsh Parliament buildings and Cardiff Castle. Man made attractions don't come much bigger than the Principality Stadium. Wales's national stadium is flanked by Cardiff City Football club on the east and the Motorpoint Arena on the right - and you'll see them both and a whole lot more on your Cardiff pleasure flight.

The ‘Castles, Coast and Bay’ helicopter ride also departs from Cardiff Heliport and naturally gives you all the local Cardiff highlights too. But this extended tour also takes you to see some superb historic castles - and by helicopter they are all even more spectacular. Marvel at the views as you fly inland making a beeline for the stunning Caerphilly Castle. This medieval fortification has impressive water defences, surrounded by a moat and artificial lakes - and you've got the best possible viewpoint!

Then you’re off in the direction of Ruperra Castle, a mansion house that has played a significant part in Welsh history. Once deemed 'fit for a King' when King Charles I stayed there, this 17th century edifice fell into ruin from the 1940s and is subject to various projects and plans. Who knows what its future is? It'll be fascinating to follow its progress from the air. At this point, the helicopter will turn to head back to your Cardiff Heliport base, via Newport and the wonderful Welsh coastline.

We told you these tours were packed to the brim with sights to see! Cardiff and the surrounding coast and countryside have so many glorious things to observe from the air. And flying at around 1000ft in an executive chopper gives you the most privileged viewpoint ever, right from the moment you take off from Cardiff Heliport.

Don’t forget the prices quoted are for the whole helicopter, which can seat up to three of you.
