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.
