One of the best ways of appreciating London’s beauty is by getting up high — on roofs, up the Shard, from top-floor restaurants. All these things are accessible to most of us. But seeing it from a helicopter is a privilege few of us will experience.
Now there’s chance to swoop over the cityscape from 1,000ft, with this competition from The National Lottery’s EuroMillions.
The experience will give the winner and a guest a taste of what it’s like to be a real winner of the EuroMillions’ Mega Friday event which guarantees 10 UK millionaires on the last Friday of every month, each winning a millionaire lifestyle experience.
This month, Mega Friday takes place on Friday 29 May and in addition to wining £1m, each millionaire will also win a London High Life experience for two — think private helicopter rides, a stay at the five star Shangri La Hotel in The Shard, dinner at restaurants of your choice and VIP Mayfair shopping with a personal stylist and £5,000 each to spend.
Until then, you have the chance to win a sunset helicopter trip on 26 May, for you and a guest (both must be 18 or over and residents within the M25 area). Your private helicopter will meander along the River Thames between City Airport westwards over the river Thames towards the Houses of Parliament, passing the Olympic park for a peer into the stadium, flying over recognisable buildings such as The O2 — you could even try your hand at spotting the structures that look like letters of the alphabet.
There’ll be plenty of chances to take the kind of photos usually only the police or snapper Jason Hawkes can, giving you chance for some serious bragging rights that even most of us at Londonist can’t trump.
To be in with a chance of winning the helicopter trip, just fill in the form with your name and email address and a contact phone number. NB you must be available to take the ride on the evening of Tuesday 26 May. We’ll pick a winner at random on Friday after 5pm and notify them by telephone.
If you don’t win the helicopter trip, you can still go for the mega prize of £1m AND the London High Life Experience with Mega Friday on 29 May. Head here to get your EuroMillions ticket. Good luck!
Please note: The winner and their guest must be over 18 and residents within the M25 area. The winner must respond by telephone with two hours of being notified to redeem the prize. Please read all terms and conditions here.
