Shropshire Helicopter Tour - 30 minutes

Experience the buzz of a helicopter flight and its beautiful aerial views, taking off and landing in Welshpool.

Enjoy thirty minutes of unobstructed sightseeing aboard a helicopter during this Shropshire pleasure flight, perfect for those seeking adrenaline combined with beautiful landscapes. Taking off from Welshpool, the tour begins by following the longest river in Britain - the River Severn. As it snakes north, you'll cross the English border and see the Shropshire plain unfold before you, a truly unrivalled sight! Further on still, you'll find yourself surrounded by a 360 vista - the rolling hills of Wales on the left, Cannock chase and the Midlands to the east, and on a clear day, you'll see Pennines and Liverpool to the north.

Looping round Breidden Hill, an age-old volcanic hill, and the prominent Rodney's Pillar, you'll swing past the disused RAF Montford Bridge and swoop over Shrewsbury. The Shuts and Passages, Shropshire Hills, Offa's Dyke and Powys Castle are just a few more of the historic sights you'll see before landing back at Welshpool feeling truly exhilarated.

Helicopter flights make fantastic gifts for thrill-seekers and sight-seers alike, so why not make someone's day and treat them to an amazing Shropshire Helicopter Tour today?

Average rating: 5 stars out of 5


This was a birthday present for my 80th. I had a wonderful time from start to finish. As you can imagine at my age I am not very agile and under 5' tall but the gentleman helped me into the helicopter and out again after the flight. It is so interesting seeing areas you feel you know from the air as it gives a completely different perspective of the landscape. Well done and thank you all for a great kexperience.

What a view

A gift voucher that you really enjoy using, that's the feeling when you step out of the helicopter. The weather was perfect, the pilot was professional and informative. A great way to experience the sensation of a flight in a helicopter and a great way to view the fantastic Shropshire countryside.
