A nice Driving Experiences Experience within easy reach of East Fortune, East Lothian.
Based at one of the UK’s most historic airfields, this eight mile sightseeing flight in a five-seater Jet Ranger helicopter offers the chance to take in sensational bird’s-eye views of the beautiful East Lothian countryside. Following the flight, tuck into a sumptuous cream tea including freshly prepared scones. Then take some time to explore the fascinating National Museum of Flight, as well as taking a look around the Concorde experience – a great way to feel what it was like to be a high flying passenger or crew member during one of Concorde’s renowned, supersonic flights by walking all the way through a static plane. With the perfect mix of sightseeing, action-packed fun and culture, this really is a great day out!
