Enjoy an exhilarating helicopter flight which allows you to discover the wonders and history of Welsh castles while taking in some of the most spectacular scenery Britain has to offer. Wales is a beautiful and fascinating country steeped in myth and legend, and what better way to see it than high-up above, from a perspective usually reserved for birds soaring overhead.
Upon arrival you will be welcomed and briefed by one of Whizzard Helicopters’ specialist flight crew. Once you are safely strapped into your seat, the helicopter will pass along the River Severn, which flows for around 220 miles from its source in the Welsh Cambrian Mountains, through Shropshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire and finally emptying into the Bristol Channel.
You will then fly over the historic county town of Montgomery, which boasts pretty Georgian architecture and a stone masonry castle built in the 13th century. Heading north, you’ll discover Hen Domen, a small mound now, but the original motte and bailey site of Montgomery Castle. You will also have the chance to see the Shropshire hills and Corndon, an area of outstanding natural beauty, all before heading over Long Mountain and Offa’s Dyke, a large linear earthwork which roughly follows the current border between England and Wales.
As you head back to the airport you’ll pass by Powys Castle with its red sandstone walls. It was once the home of a long line of Welsh Princes and was even visited by Queen Victoria when she was a child.
Don't forget to take your camera, so you can re-live the experience with friends and family and show off your fantastic photographs.
