Sussex History Tour

See Sussex's historic landmarks both modern and ancient from the air on this inspirational helicopter tour. From Iron Age hill settlements to Medieval castles, from second world war fortifications to royal palaces, from chalk figures to ancient trading routes - this tour encompasses them all. This flight costs £495 and carries up to three passengers.

Unlike our experience flights the Sussex History Tour can be taken any day of the week giving you the chance to avoid the weekends and experience Shoreham Airport when it is less hectic. It also allows you to choose a birthday or anniversary rather than just a weekend close to it.

Shoreham Airfield is arguably the best airfield in the UK to start a flight experience. The stunning views of the coastline, the piers on the Brighton seafront, the white cliffs, the rolling Sussex Downs - all make Shoreham Airfield head and shoulders above many other windswept airfields often in the middle of endless farmland at the back end of nowhere.

And your experience is not over once your helicopter lands. Shoreham Airport's art deco main terminal building takes you back to the days when flying was the height of sophistication. If you want a special meal then there are various fine restaurants in Shoreham-by-Sea (a short walk from the airfield) as well as the stylish Hummingbird Cafe at the main terminal building.

The lead member of the group will be presented with a souvenir photo CD containing professionally taken high resolution photos of Brighton and the Sussex countryside. This ensures that everyone can sit back and enjoy the trip safe in the knowledge that you've already got some stunning photos to show your friends and family.

PLEASE NOTE: When booking a tour you are booking the helicopter for your own private use (not just a seat on a flight with others). If your party does not fill the aircraft the cost of the tour does not change as it is based on the running cost of the helicopter, not the number of seats occupied.

  • My husband surprised me with a helicopter flight and lunch at the Bailiffs Court package with champagne on arrival. Whilst the lunch was fantastic, the flight itself was just amazing. The bonus of the lunch package is you get 2 flights, one there and one back so much more worthwhile. We had a good 2 hours for lunch, the staff were very attentive and the food was superb. Our pilot John was great, he gave us plenty of time and we didn't feel rushed at all. I couldn't wait for the flight home, I love the perspective from the air and we live in such a beautiful part of the country it was just fantastic to see. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys flying, I didn't stop smiling the whole time and couldn't stop talking about it afterwards. Would love to do it again (& again)!!
