Flight of Fancy

 

Forget New York, time to see the greatest city in the World at night, the first London night-time helicopter sight seeing tours launch next month. For this privilege the price is £4000 for you and 5 friends, but what a way to see the Houses of Parliament and St Paul's spectacularly floodlit. Alternatively, the Battersea based London Helicopter, also offer day time rides from just £199pp.

Perhaps not for those who suffer from vertigoooooo...
