This superb 'Castles in the Air' Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in Sussex is your chance to enjoy a thrilling helicopter ride over some of the country's most spectacular castles and landmarks, admiring beautiful scenery as marvellous views unfold beneath you. Soaring in either a Bell 206 Long Ranger or a Jet Ranger at 1,500 feet, you will follow a route which flies over both Amberley Castle and Arundel Castle, before soaring over Goodwood House, Fontwell Park Racecourse, and then Petworth Houses, Arundel and Chichester Cathedrals, the stunning South Downs and the beautiful, sweeping shoreline of the South Coast.

If you've never been in a helicopter before, you're in for a real treat; the sense of freedom as you weave through the sky is second to none, and the fact helicopters can hover and go backwards and sideways is certainly handy when you are on a sightseeing tour! During this fantastic experience, you will have the opportunity to see some of the gems in England's crown and will view history which goes back hundreds of years from your aerial vantage point. This is the perfect experience gift for thrill-seekers, but also makes a wonderful activity to enjoy with the family.

You will then board either a Bell 206 Long Ranger or a Jet Ranger and begin your ascent! The thirty minute tour will fly over Goodwood House, Petworth House, Amberley Castle, Arundel Castle and Cathedral, before moving south along to the coast at Littlehampton, along to Bognor Regis before finally returning to Chichester. This flight will soar over two country houses, two horse racing tracks, two cathedrals two castles, and a motor racing circuit on the route, so you can be assured there will be plenty to see!

'Castles in the Air' Helicopter Tour

Pleasant and informative flight with excellent commentary by the pilot. The only problems were the seating space, which was tight, and the view from the rear seats - but I knew that from a previous flight in a similar aircr4aft!

This week we are going in a completely different direction by talking to Jonny from Drift Limits, boasting the UK’s fastest drifting experience. If you’re a fan of driving days, super cars  and all things speedy, then this is definitely an experience worth reading about. 


1) Hi Jonny, please explain your journey as 'Drift Limits' so far.


Since the early days of getting into motorsport I did a few driving experiences but really felt they lacked integrity for the keen petrol head, I found they were very restricted in terms of how hard you can push the cars.  I have been racing for 3 years and then moved onto become an ARDS instructor with the ambition of developing a driving experience where you can really lean about car control and follow our motto ‘ find your limit’ at the UK’s fastest drifting experience.

The type of job it is means you’re constantly on your toes. It can be incredibly rewarding watching guests progress their skills in a short period of time. I guess I’m fortunate in being able to say I love what I do.


2) Yes that must be rewarding, what has been the biggest or most memorable event you have provided?


Ah, so many awesome days! Last week we had Harry Main and Buttsy Butler from Monster come up and play.  We also had a demo shoot for Jack Reaper stunts which was good fun despite all the screaming in my ear!


3) Sounds great! Is there any inside information you can give us?


Yes, definitely – come to one of our days and we will divulge! Ha, really just listen to the instructors to get the most out of the day. Be patient and you will progress quicker. Some people find the 3rd gear corner very daunting sideways at 60mph. You have to focus and forget about what you previously thought was possible.


After a session at Drift Limits you’ll come away a better driver and obtain new skills in the car control department. The track experiences allow guests to drive dream cars that are bonkers fast!


4) Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you'd like to tell us about?


Big plans – the track layout is currently being extended and resurfaced, and it is already the fastest drifting experience in the UK. We have a Ferrari 430 GT3 race car and Formula Renaults joining the fleet soon, so we’ll have quite a few more experiences to offer looking forward.


Thank you for talking to us, Jonny, definitely something I would love to try! Stay tuned for more information drifting experiences.
