The sky’s the limit
Everyone enjoys a view when they are on holiday, but few places can offer a perspective like The London Helicopter (p. 28). Taking off from Battersea’s heliport, the flights offer a unique view of London with its routes, from London Buzz (12 min) to London Sights (18 min). If you are after a view to a thrill, opt for the recently launched Open Door flight – as the name suggests, there is nothing but air between you and the city’s sights, making it great for budding photographers who want to get a clear view over London. As you’re more than 1,000 feet in the sky on the 18 min-long flight, you will follow the River Thames and take in icons such as the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and Buckingham Palace.
