Our collection of UK sightseeing flights let you see the world from a very different angle as you cruise at around 1500ft over town and country. Everything looks so different from the air and it's a real pleasure to be on a flight to appreciate the views, rather than simply travelling from A to B.

We think these flights are ideal for those who want to see all the sights from the air but aren't too keen on actually flying the aircraft themselves. After your VIP welcome onboard from your pilot, all you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the incredible aerial views. Read more...

Glorious aerial views on a sightseeing flight

This is a beautiful country we live in and these aerial sightseeing tours will show you some of the best bits of it. See that rolling countryside, the most photographed buildings and a whole raft of historic landmarks over towns, cities and villages all over the UK, from high above the ground.

Of course, getting airborne gives you that all-important birds eye viewpoint, so you'll be looking down on all that's going on below. During the first couple of minutes of these sightseeing flights you'll probably be acclimatising to the view - it's like toy town, with people appearing to be the size of ants and cars looking just like miniature versions. Then you’ll relax into it as you spot all those sights, with the pilot often offering a commentary.

A full range of flight durations and sightseeing destinations

Flight durations range from five minute 'buzz' thrills, to 45 minutes of sheer sightseeing tour heaven as you soar over wonderful places and sights that are all the more photogenic from the air. You’ll get to see everything from castles and stately homes, to beaches and wonderful cliffs and coves, with sports venues and city centres too.

We've got lots of itineraries for you to choose from across the United Kingdom. How about getting a feel for what the boys in 617 RAF Squadron had to do when they swooped down to just 60ft over the water on a Dambusters flight in the Lakes? Fancy enjoying flying around the incredible skyscrapers of London? Want to gaze down on the purpose-built set where Emmerdale is filmed,? Or perhaps you've always wanted to see what Anfield and Goodison Park football grounds look from the air? It's all possible!

One of the most magical sightseeing flights has to be the chartered flights to see the Northern Lights. It’s nature’s very best light show and if you’re lucky enough to see them out of the plane’s window, you too could be rewarded with some amazing images, like this traveller documents in his Northern Lights video from a plane over Norway.

Indeed, it doesn't matter where you are sitting in the aircraft, you will get some fabulous views that definitely merit being be captured on film. That means you can show your friends and family what you saw once you have landed back on terra firma - after all, it's probably those very same people who bought your ticket!

We think these UK-wide sightseeing experiences are truly superb and we particularly love the flight in the classic de Havilland Dove commercial airliner for that nostalgic twist. You’ll probably never get the same chance again to see those airborne panoramic vistas in all their glory from overhead.
