Detailed Description

Experiencing England from air imbues a wonderful paradox. Each landscape and every angle appear very different; the rugged hills of the Yorkshire Dales, oak-lined rivers in the Cotswolds, vast castles, intriguing cities, cute villages, coastlines that rise with tumultuous tones. With six days of flying, there's thousands of postcard panoramas, each with few similarities to the last. Every angle seems to reflect the very definition of England. As you gaze from the large helicopter window, you can't help thinking, “Ah, this is England.” Only for the same words to be uttered five minutes later. The landscapes and sights are seductively diverse. But each feels iconic and quintessential as if every single vista feels ready to represent England in live high-definition.

With this unique itinerary, you spend six days flying. A private helicopter charter takes you the length and breadth of the country, crossing from London to Oxford to Bath, then to the Lake District and Scotland. Returning south, you chart an eastern path, soaring through Yorkshire towards Cambridge. The tour runs at a relaxed pace, with daily stops for you to explore on the ground before taking to the skies again. For example, you fly over London before taking in the enormity of Windsor Castle. Touch down on the ground, explore the state apartments and ancient turrets, then fly onwards to Oxfordshire. With a helicopter, the aerial sightseeing is complemented by the ease and convenience of travel. In just six days of flying, you can travel from London and the south to the remote landscapes of Loch Ness and Northern Scotland. And then back again. All at a very leisurely pace.

Sometimes it's the countryside that inspires. Great folds of green hills divided by stone walls; wisps of mist rising from hidden lakes; sheep scattered across precipitous coastal cliffs or the jagged rise of Scotland's peaks. At other times, it's the grandeur of England's history. Monumental castles standing unbowed, centuries-old cathedral spires that still dominate city skylines, magnificent Tudor homes surrounded by moats. And then there's the wealth of architecture, revealed as you soar above cities and admire their design. With a helicopter, you fly high enough to take in the scale. But low enough to take in all the intimate details. Gaze one way and rural England spills onto the horizon. Look the other and you clearly make out the turrets of an 11th-century castle.

The helicopter itinerary covers all of England and a large sweep of Scotland. It's customizable on the day, with the pilot able to subtly change the route to take in any special interests. The focus is always on ensuring you have the maximum opportunity to view the two countries from the air. Complementing the helicopter journeys are a handcrafted collection of England's finest accommodations. Picture rustic cottages, stately homes, and boutique guesthouses tucked away from the world.
