The London skyline is iconic – from the illuminated clock-faces of Big Ben’s tower and the domed silhouette of St Paul’s Cathedral to more modern additions such as Canary Wharf and the London Eye, there’s no mistaking the capital’s most eye-catching landmarks. And what better way to see them than from above on a London Pleasure Flight experience? None of the commuter hustle and bustle, none of the traffic noise, just the serenity of looking down on London and enjoying the sights without any interruptions.
Joining the Thames at Dartford, the London Pleasure Flight follows the river into central London, where it offers a bird’s eye view of the most notable points of interest. From the air you can see Tower Bridge, one of the most easily identified Thames crossings with its hydraulic raising mechanisms used for allowing river traffic to pass, HMS Belfast, the Royal Navy light cruiser retired from active duty to become a museum ship permanently moored on the Thames since 1971, and the Houses of Parliament, a site of importance since the Middle Ages which has gone from being the principle residence of the reigning monarch to the seat of parliament despite being ravaged by fire and extensive bombing from the Gunpowder plot to the IRA.
The Manhattan skyline may be famous for its imposing buildings, but the more elegant charm of London’s city centre is a testimony to the preservation of older structures and appreciation of the traditional architecture. This has allowed London to retain a unique appeal making a pleasure flight gift experience perfect for anyone who appreciates a great view and a fantastic flying experience.
So if you know someone who would love the chance to see London from the air, take in all the sights at once and enjoy an opportunity to take fantastic photos and make memories to last a lifetime, then a London Pleasure Flight is a great gift idea. Or perhaps you would enjoy the chance to see the capital from a new angle and fancy treating yourself to an experience to remember – either way a London Pleasure flight experience is guaranteed to make your day.
