Just because the temperature is dropping, it doesn’t mean your adventures have to freeze as well! This winter, I have selected the best 4 adrenaline-packed experiences in London for those looking to add some excitement into their lives.
Thames RIB experience
What could be better than speeding down the Thames at 35 knots? The Thames RIB experience is a great way to see the city from the water, but also get your adrenaline fix! The 740 horsepower boats carry 12 people on a number of routes down the famous waterway, but I jumped on the best-selling Canary Wharf experience. We started at Embankment pier, looped past Westminster and Big Ben, then headed full throttle for the Docklands.
Don’t fret, you are more than safe on board, but the 360 turns will have you in stitches. Not to mention, the blasting of James Bond as you pass the iconic Tower Bridge makes for one hell of a video moment.
Winter Wonderland Rides
This year’s Hyde Park Winter Wonderland is jammed full of roller coasters, horror houses and gravity-defying rides. Make your way from Knightsbridge Underground towards the famous gardens and be astonished by the colossal event held every November-January in London.
My favourite rides include the ‘Ice Mountain’, ‘Hangover’ and ‘Air’ rides, ranging between £5-£9pp.
The Slide at ArcelorMittal Orbit
Queen Victoria Park is home to the ArcelorMittal Orbit, the UK’s tallest sculpture. The iconic monument, created for the 2012 Olympics, has been transformed into an epic adrenaline pumping experience. For only £15pp, it’s a steal and something to add to your bucket list!
The London Helicopter
Feel like Peter Pan as you fly over Westminster, circle Big Ben, past The London Eye and over the thousands of buildings of this great metropolis. The London Helicopter will take you on a private ride over the Thames and central London districts, which will make you appreciate just how huge the city really is. Opt for one of their longer flights for an experience you will never forget!
