Guests can book a group tour of London that takes in sights including London Bridge, HMS Belfast, The Houses of Parliament, Canary Wharf and Tower Bridge and more.

A 45-minute London Thames tour costs £250 per person, while business groups can also arrange a bespoke tour of the city for a maximum of five people, which costs £2,800 per flight.

Martin Vann, general manager of Crowne Plaza London – Heathrow, said: "Being so well situated for the airport, our guests usually don’t have a lot of time to spare to get out an explore London on foot.

"We understand this, and decided that our guests should not miss out on the stunning sights of our beautiful capital city. All they have to do is stroll out into the grounds, step into the helicopter and enjoy a whirlwind tour of London that takes just 45 unforgettable minutes."

The Crowne Plaza London – Heathrow has 21 dedicated meeting rooms and boardrooms and can fit up to 200 delegates.
