What Can I Expect

Tour the most picturesque cities in the UK from the air on these thrilling city helicopter tours! There's something about looking down on the world below from a helicopter that just takes your breath away every single time.

The choppers used for these UK-wide heli tours are the four-seater Bell Jet Ranger and the six-seater Bell Long Ranger, both boasting superb views for all passengers onboard. They are impressive-looking machines and as the whirring starts the noise is really quite spectacular and makes the pre-flight build-up all the more palpable.

What never ceases to amaze us about helicopters is how quickly and gracefully they move in the skies. Before you've even switched your camera on, you'll be soaring over the city. What's more, being able to hover means you can linger over the very best sights to see from the air to capture great photos.

Of course, depending on which airport, farm or helipad from our country-wide range you chose to take off from, your flight path varies. It could include touring your local town centre to look down on the most iconic buildings and streets, or hovering around some famous football stadia. Or it could be a case of checking out those ancient castles from up in the air.

One thing's for sure, no matter which UK city you are hovering over in your heli, you'll see it in a completely different light. Head off in the early morning and follow the snaking lines of commuter traffic crawling into the cities for work. Take off in the early evening and watch the sunset over those city spires. Just wonderful!

It may sound a little bit cliché, but we think seeing the UK from the air is pure 'bucket list' stuff - especially if you're cruising over a city that has played a part in your life, be it where you work, where your childhood home is, where you were a student, or where you got married. Whatever the story is behind why you want to tour that city in a helicopter, you're sure to adore the day you saw it all from 1500ft!
