Ready to find the one for you and book your helicopter tour? Let’s dive right in!

My Top 3 Picks: London Helicopter Tours

#1 TOP PICK

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ London Sightseeing Flight for 2 with Champagne ✔️ 60+ 5 star reviews ✔️ Private tour with only 2 seats ✔️ See all the main sights

Helicopter tour perspective of the Olympic Stadium in London, surrounded by the developing cityscape and green fields beyond

London Sightseeing Helicopter Tour (for up to 3 passengers) ✔️ Personalised flight ✔️ See all the main sights ✔️ Fly over the countryside too

30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for Two ✔️ See all the main sights ✔️ Private tour

London Helicopter Tours

Taking a London helicopter tour is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The views are unbelievable and seeing the sights from above is an experience not to forget. It’s a magical moment and the feeling you get flying over the beautiful city of London is unmatched. You can’t beat taking a tour of the city by helicopter!

1. London Sightseeing Flight for 2 with Champagne

⭐ RATING: 5 out of 5 Stars (60+ reviews) | ⌛ FLIGHT LENGTH: 35 minutes | 🚁 BOOK NOW

My favourite London helicopter tour is the London Sightseeing Flight for 2 with Champagne which is also the highest-rated tour with over 60 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ reviews!

Review of this London helicopter tour which says "It was a super smooth and easy flight. Our pilot did an excellent job, very competent and skilled. Was a pure pleasure to fly above London and see all the major attractions. It was a really memorable day!"

When taking a helicopter tour, or any tour in fact, you want to go with the tried and tested option, right? This is the most highly rated and most reviewed London helicopter tour.

Taking the London Sightseeing Flight for 2 with Champagne allows you to see all of London’s landmarks from above. Including the River Thames, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s, Tower Bridge, and many more.

My favourite will always be Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Seeing it for the first time from the ground was surreal, especially as it had just been refurbished, but seeing it from the sky was unbelievable.

Another selling point of this tour is the champagne (or non-alcoholic equivalent) provided by the tour company. It’s a lovely inclusion and adds to the romantic nature of this tour. While I personally don’t drink and didn’t take advantage of this offer during my flight, I know many people reading this will love the thought of a glass of the bubbly in the air.

As the tour company themself advertise, this is a great option for “ travellers looking for a luxurious and romantic experience in London “. There’s no better option than this tour if you’re seeking some romance.

You are allowed to take photos during the tour, so imagine the incredible shots you can take. London is very photographable from the ground, and even more so from the air. As a travel blogger, I always have to take lots of photos wherever I go to use on my site, and this tour provided endless photo opportunities.

If you’re like me and always want the window seat on a plane, and you enjoy the view you get over a city before a plane lands, you will LOVE a helicopter tour.

And there’s no better option for taking a helicopter tour over the English capital than the London Sightseeing Flight for 2 with Champagne . It often sells out so make sure to book quickly!

2. London Sightseeing Helicopter Tour (for up to 3 passengers)

⭐ RATING: 5 out of 5 Stars (25+ reviews) | ⌛ FLIGHT LENGTH: 35 minutes | 🚁 BOOK NOW

Another personal favourite of mine is the London Sightseeing Helicopter Tour (for up to 3 passengers) . With over 25+ 5-star reviews, it’s also a tried and tested tour, which has passed the test of lots of groups before both you and me. But it has my seal of approval too.

Review which says "Very good. Pilot excellent . Told us everything we wanted to know. Flight excellent. Everything was top notch!"

It’s also slightly cheaper than the first option, so if you are visiting London on a budget , it may be the choice for you.

You can also have 3 people on this tour instead of just 2 on the first option, so that may be a deciding factor too.

It’s unlikely if you are a party of 2 that you will have someone with you, but it is possible. Though it’s rare this happens.

London Sightseeing Helicopter Tour (for up to 3 passengers) includes a tour of the Surrey countryside before reaching central London where you will fly over the River Thames and all of London’s famous attractions.

Getting a bird’s eye view of London is amazing and words can’t describe it. It’s one of the best things I have ever done. You will never truly understand the beauty of a helicopter flight until you take one for yourself.

Throughout the tour, the pilot provides a commentary on the flight, and points out the landmarks as well as telling you a little bit about everything.

This tour (and most others on this list) fly at a height just above the Shard , so you get a really really good view of London.

It’s not too high that you can’t see everything, but high enough that you get the benefits of an aerial view. The perfect balance if you ask me. I wasn’t really a huge fan of the Shard until I flew past it then I was like “Yeah, okay, this is a pretty cool building” and now I’m a fan!

If you are a bigger group or prefer to take a slightly cheaper (but still great!) option, then the London Sightseeing Helicopter Tour is the helicopter tour for you.

3. 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for Two

Bird's-eye view from a helicopter tour showing the iconic Big Ben and Westminster area alongside the River Thames

⭐ RATING: 4.8 out of 5 Stars (10+ reviews) | ⌛ FLIGHT LENGTH: 30 minutes | 🚁 BOOK NOW

About a third of the price of the first tour, 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for Two may be a better option for you if you can’t justify spending nearly $1000 on a London helicopter tour. Once again, it’s highly rated and tested by multiple people.

Review of this London helicopter tour which says "We have a brilliant time everyone was so friendly I would recommend this to everyone well worth it 😊"

You can’t beat a bargain and getting a helicopter tour for 2 people for under $400 is an incredible deal. The 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for Two is more than worth the money.

Please note you will share your flight with up to five other passengers and the pilot, and it is not a private experience like the previous two options.

But this won’t take away from the experience. The view is obviously still amazing and worth paying good money for.

You take it in turns having the window seat, but there’s only really one or two seats which don’t have a window. Don’t worry though- you still get amazing views, you just have to look past someone. Not ideal for photos, but still incredible to experience.

As the company says, “You will each take a seat in the helicopter and experience the thrill of being propelled into the air and taken on a tour of London.” Helicopter tours are filled with thrill (the good kind) and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

If you want to have the best possible view of London , take a helicopter tour. It’s an extraordinary time.

Want to save money but still have an amazing helicopter tour? 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for Two is the one for you.

4. 30 Minute Helicopter Tour of London

Aerial view of Tower Bridge in London with boats on the Thames River, seen from a helicopter tour.

⭐ RATING: 4.7 out of 5 Stars (7 reviews) | ⌛ FLIGHT LENGTH: 30 minutes | 🚁 BOOK NOW

As the joint-cheapest tour on this list, you can’t go wrong with taking a 30 Minute Helicopter Tour of London . Once again, it’s been reviewed highly and it’s clear the price doesn’t lead to neglect in quality.

Review which says "The experience from start to finish was flawless. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The take-off and landing was amazing, it didn't feel that the helicopter was going fast. It was better than a plane journey. We had beautiful blue sky and fantastic views of London. I would definitely go again."

As the review of the 30 Minute Helicopter Tour of London says, the views over London are fantastic. It’s hard to beat seeing London from the sky. Just imagine, sitting in a helicopter flying over the city and taking in its beauty.

Personally, I would enjoy a helicopter ride anywhere. It’s just a fun thing to do. Add in the amazing views of London and you have an unbeatable combination.

If you have enough days in London , a helicopter flight is a perfect thing to do. If you have seen the attractions and landmarks from the ground, seeing them from the sky is a whole new kettle of fish.

You won’t regret it, in fact, you’ll wish it was longer. As the review says, they “would definitely go again”.

Want to take a London helicopter tour for less than $200? Book your 30 Minute Helicopter Tour of London quickly before it sells out!

5. 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for One

Wide-angle shot from a helicopter tour showcasing the sweeping bend of the River Thames and the London Eye in the distance

⭐ RATING: 4.75 out of 5 Stars (4 reviews) | ⌛ FLIGHT LENGTH: 30 minutes | 🚁 BOOK NOW

If you are a solo traveller like me, or the only one brave enough out of your group to get into a helicopter, then 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for One is the tour you’ve been looking for.

Review which says "Amazing! Would definitely recommend to anyone"

As someone who travels solo all of the time, it was a pleasant surprise to me to find a tour aimed at only one person. The only other time I can think of this is the solo-rider queues at Disney (I didn’t go on my own that time though).

30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for One is also the other joint-cheapest of these London helicopter tours per person) so it’s also a great way to get a more affordable tour, compared to the first two which are nearly $1000.

During the tour you also fly over the Surrey Hills , which are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty , you can’t go wrong with starting your helicopter tour just outside the heart of the city.

As much as I loved flying over London itself, flying over the countryside was a really amazing experience too. Especially since it’s so beautiful. I can’t really explain why but flying over the countryside made me want to go skydiving. So now it’s on my bucket list!

One of the most exciting parts of a helicopter tour is that so few people get to experience it. It’s a relatively exclusive experience and not many tourists opt for seeing London from above. But they’re missing out!

Soaring over the city you get a unique and unparalleled view of the landmarks which millions of people visit each year, but how many see them from above? Probably at most a few thousand.

You can’t beat a London helicopter tour and if you’re going solo, taking a 30 Minute Themed Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for One is the best option.

London Helicopter Tour | Helicopter Ride Over London

This post is a review of your options for helicopter rides and tours over London.  

Of course, we love to see London by foot, but sometimes it’s fun to see the city from a different vantage point!

  • What to Expect
  • How Much Is a Trip

Helicopter Companies

If you’ve ever wanted to get a birds-eye view of our favourite city, check out our guide below for the best helicopter tours in town.

What to Expect From a Helicopter Ride Over London

Before you book your unforgettable sightseeing tour, here's some general information about what you might expect from a helicopter ride.

There are a variety of routes and options to choose from.

You might find one company that covers the landmarks you'd expect and want to see (The Tower of London, Tower Bridge, the Gherkin, Westminster, and Buckingham Palace) or another that will work with you to customize a trip.

Tours tend to last anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes on average. But of course, if you are customizing a trip that time can be extended.

The most important thing to note is that these companies take safety pretty seriously.

Your pilot will have had to pass certain regulations set by the Civil Aviation Authority, and the helicopters tend to be newer and well-maintained.

There will be a safety briefing with passengers before you leave the ground.

There are also weight, health, and age restrictions on some of the flights, including a maximum weight for the entire group, so you'll want to look into those before booking your trip.

You'll also want to make sure whatever company you choose has public liability insurance.

If the company feels that it's not safe to fly in certain weather conditions the flight will be canceled.

This is a good reason to double-check your contact information before checking out. If the company knows far enough ahead of time that the weather will be bad, they can contact you before you head to the pick-up site.

Before the Flight

You'll want to dress comfortably. You may also want to take along a light sweater or jacket because it can get quite cold once up in the air. You might also want to bring along sunglasses or a hat.

There are certain things that can't be taken on the flights (example: lighters) so be sure to check the list and leave those things behind.

Be sure to bring along your ID. You may even be asked to fill out the details of your passengers ahead of time, providing such information as their names, birth dates, weights, countries, and a copy of their IDs.

You'll want to arrive at least 20-30 minutes ahead of your flight. The company should tell you how long they'll need for check-in and safety instructions.

Note that they may deny someone access to the flight if they are intoxicated or don't meet some of the various necessary restrictions.

On the Flight

Depending on the type of trip booked, be prepared to share the flight with people you may not know.

Once you're on the flight, your pilot or tour guide will communicate with you through a headset. Yes, it's quite loud up there!

You might even be given a glass of champagne or other refreshments, depending on the carrier.

How Much Does a Helicopter Trip Over London Cost?

The cost of your ride depends on many factors including the length of the trip, the number of people in your party, and the number of seats filled.

Although they tend to be on the pricier side, because helicopter trips are often a once-in-a-lifetime experience, they tend to be popular. You'll want to book early because flights tend to fill up.

Note that some companies only go up if they've filled a certain number of seats.

If you'd still like to take the flight, they may offer you the option of buying extra seats.

Some of the UK’s most popular voucher sites occasionally offer deals on their helicopter tour packages.

You might check the following sites before booking with a specific carrier.

  • LivingSocial

If you've chosen your carrier already, you might search the name of the company and the words "PROMO CODE" or "COUPON CODE" in case there is a code you can you to discount your flight on check-out.

If you're looking for one of the best helicopter experiences, London offers you a number of options.

Best Tours for Helicopter Sightseeing in London

Have you thought about spicing up your London family vacation by doing something unexpected?  Helicopter sightseeing in London may be just the thing!

A helicopter tour may give the kids a thrill while allowing older children and adults to see the biggest London attractions from a new view. You may even decide that a helicopter tour is the perfect way to add some adult romance even with the kids in tow.

If you think London is beautiful from the ground, wait until you lift off and see it from up in the clouds! If this type of sightseeing tour appeals to your family, then you have some great options in London.

Top Helicopter Sightseeing in London:

The following list will introduce you to four of our top picks for helicopter sightseeing tours in London.

1. A2B Heli (Charters)

Select from 10-minute, 20-minute, and 30-minute  sightseeing flights , departing from the London Heliport in Battersea. Each flight can accommodate up to five passengers and is available for daytime or nighttime bookings. You can even upgrade to flowers and champagne if you want to treat the family to something unexpected.

Some of the attractions that you may see during an A2B sightseeing tour in London include:

  • Buckingham Palace
  • Tower Bridge

Prices start at £995 for a 10-minute flight with up to five passengers. Nighttime tours are a bit more expensive than daytime tours of the same length. The 30-minute London Battersea Maxi Tour will cost you more than £2,000 for up to four passengers.

2. Wingly UK

Wingly is a great place to shop for London helicopter tours because it features a variety of flight options with highly trained, experienced pilots. You can see the departure and landing sights for each flight plus a personal introduction from the pilot and pictures of the helicopter used for each tour. The site features flights of varying lengths and even includes acrobatic flights for the daredevils in the family.

One of the best sightseeing helicopter tours on Wingly is the 30-minute  sightseeing flight over Central London  on a Bell 206 Jetranger for four passengers. It starts at £139 per passenger and departs from Biggin Hill Airport in London.

You can find similar flights lasting up to an hour if you look at Wingly closely. Make sure to look at the airfield used for each flight because they aren’t all in London even if they fly over London.

3. Heli Air

If you want options when it comes to sights, prices, and flight length,  Heli Air  is a good option. This reputable sightseeing helicopter tour operation offers around 10 flight options at any given time. There are also many flights exploring other areas of the UK, so you’re not limited to London.

You can book tours for up to five people. There are smaller helicopters available for fewer passengers, so you don’t have to pay the full price of a five-person tour if you have a smaller family. Prices range from around £150 to over £500, depending on the size of the plane and the tour length.

4.  Bumblebee Charters

Bumblebee Charters offers a few London helicopter tours, starting around £420. for two seats on flights lasting about 35 minutes. The price for four seats is around £500, and the price goes up to around £800 for six seats. Flight times can go up to 90 minutes for families interested in investing a bit more in the experience.

You can add a bottle of champagne to a two-seat flight for a marginal fee. Other optional add-ons include flowers, chocolates, and special photographs. The photographs are a nice touch for families interested in preserving the memories for years to come.

Preparing for a Helicopter Sightseeing in London with Kids

Family helicopter tours are fun, but what can you do to prepare children for the experience? The following list of helicopter preparation tips will help:

  • Talk openly to set expectations. You want your children to get excited about flying in a helicopter, but you don’t want them shocked at the limited space inside the helicopter and the noise that comes with the ride. Explaining everything that may happen will set realistic expectations while allowing excitement to grow.
  • Make sure every member of the family pays attention during the safety talks. Most flights will require you to go through safety guidelines first, and it’s easy to zone out if you aren’t interested. Resist the urge and make sure even the little ones pay attention.
  • Watch videos of helicopter tours online. YouTube is a great resource. It will show your kids what a helicopter ride is like so that they aren’t left to their imaginations.
  • Bring a helicopter-safe toy for your little one just in case a distraction is needed while in the air.

The more you talk to your kids during the helicopter ride, the more engaged they’re likely to remain. Let them see your excitement and feed off your enthusiasm for helicopter sightseeing.

Private Helicopter Tour of London

Our private helicopter tour of London is more of an event than a quick whizz around London. We use an airfield on the Cotswolds' edge, allowing a little countryside touring and lunch stop if you wish.

The flight is a full-on tour of London with a guide telling you London's story from 1500 ft. The city will be laid out before you, much like a giant map. See the original Roman plan, historical landmarks and modern skyline.

Be enthralled by London's story and be thrilled by the flight. Include the helicopter tour of London as part of your Private Tour of London .

Full hour helicopter tour of London

See london from 1500 ft..

Meet your driver-guide in the lobby of your hotel and head out of London to the airfield. Have a coffee and relax before your flight briefing. The weather and air-traffic will determine the precise route. The airbus Eurocopter has five comfortable seats, all offering a great view.

  • Full hour flight
  • Option for lunch in the Cotswolds
  • See London in a map-like format

First, you fly over the English countryside towards the Thames Valley. You cruise over the Cliveden House Hotel estate and Stoke Park. Before a short hover over the world-famous Pinewood Studios, where you will see the giant "Bond" sound stage with the blue screen. We head down to below 1,000 feet briefly over Kew Gardens and various historic houses on the River Thames banks. You start to see the city unfold before your eyes; it is an incredible sight. We rise to 1,500 ft, and manoeuvre left and right following the river's course as we enter London.

London is much like a map below us with its familiar shapes of parks and palaces. You see the Albert Hall, Harrods, and appreciate Buckingham Palace's scale - Big Ben is just below with the rotating London Eye opposite.

The giant buildings in the financial district reveal themselves, and you will marvel at majestic St Paul's Cathedral with its enormous dome. You fly over Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and London Bridge before heading to the Docklands.

The aircraft depending on flight plans will make a wide left turn over Canary Wharf and the Olympic Park before following the old Roman road heading north-west back to the countryside.

You have the option to enjoy lunch in the Cotswolds before heading back to your hotel.

Prince Harry heads back to California after whirlwind 24-hour London trip to see cancer-stricken King Charles

Cheerio, London.

Prince Harry is already on his way back home to Montecito, Calif., after just 24 hours on home soil.

The Duke of Sussex, 39, touched down in London just after 2 p.m. local time Tuesday before visiting his ailing father, King Charles III, for a mere 45 minutes.

Harry smiled as he returned to London’s Heathrow Airport on Wednesday afternoon after he was escorted to Clarence House in a convoy from the same airport yesterday.

If the duke catches the 3 p.m. British Airways flight out of Heathrow, he is expected to land at LAX just after 6 p.m. local time.

The exiled royal reportedly stayed the night at a London hotel following his brief meeting with his father, despite having a plethora of royal residences at his disposal.

Harry’s mad trans-Atlantic dash is reminiscent of his whirlwind trip to London for his father’s coronation on May 6, 2023.

The father of two caught an urgent flight out of LAX to London  Monday night after learning the news of  King Charles’ cancer diagnosis .

Charles, for his part, begins outpatient cancer treatment this week.

He and his wife, Queen Camilla, were taken to Sandringham via helicopter from Buckingham Palace on Tuesday afternoon.

Harry is headed home to Montecito, Calif., where wife Meghan Markle remains with their two children , Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

The “Suits” alum, 42, decided not to join her husband on his urgent trip because she felt it’s “something he has to do alone,” King Charles’ former butler Grant Harrold exclusively told The Post this week.

Elsewhere, Harry’s estranged brother, Prince William, was seen for the first time since returning to royal duties.

The Prince of Wales, 41, hosted a star-studded investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle on Wednesday morning, when he handed out more than 50 honors on behalf of his ailing father.

In the evening, the father of three is expected to attend a gala fundraising dinner for London’s Air Ambulance Charity as the organization’s patron.

It’s understood that Harry did not meet up with William during his 24-hour stint in London, as the feuding brothers had “no plans to meet.”
