London from above: a helicopter ride

Getting to know London in every detail has been our passion since we’ve lived here, and seeing London from a helicopter was our last experience.

As you know, although we have been living in London since 2010, we are still passionate about discovering new corners and places to later be able to share it with you through QverLondres. So you can imagine how excited I was when I received a helicopter ride as a Christmas present to see London from above.

What’s up? Well, the fabulous experience, I had never flown in a helicopter before and the truth is that if you are not afraid of flying, it is something that I recommend.

The downside – is that the weather has to be perfect, and you run the risk that if you hire it for a specific day, the flight will be canceled that day and you have to take another day… so I don’t recommend it if you’re going to be in London for a few days only, since I am afraid that the chances of it being canceled on the same day are quite high…

We depart from Elstree aerodrome in North London. In less than 10 minutes we were flying over the Thames above the O2, with wonderful views over one of the best cities in the world.
