What can I expect?
See bustling Bristol from a helicopter! These flights will zoom you in at just over 1000ft so you can enjoy that ultimate 'eye in the sky' view of all that Bristol has to offer - and there's a lot of it to see, so let's get straight down to business and tell you what sights you might well hover over during your trip... The one thing that everyone most wants to see and photograph from the air is the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Built by Brunel, it signifies Bristol's industrial heritage and whilst already looking pretty impressive from the ground, it is amazing from your privileged position in the chopper as you look down on those fine curves and the Avon gorge below. In fact, architecture fans are spoilt for choice in Bristol, with over 50 Grade I and over 4000 Grade II listed buildings around this hill-side city, from medieval to ultra-modern all making the list. You might well be able to spot the likes of Cabot Tower perched on the slope at Brandon Hill Park, the colourful facades of the Georgian townhouses in Clifton and the elegant Temple Meads station. Then there's that undeniable student vibe, with Bristol boasting two Universities. If you can pick out the steep Park Street from your chopper, you might be able to spot Will's Memorial at the summit of this road, where formal University ceremonies are held.
