Written by  Abhinav

London is home to several water sports activity centres, giving you and your family a chance to try ahand at sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, and so on. All these activity centres have qualified instructors, who help you indulge in activity of your choice.

Thames River Kayaking - Hampton Court Palace

Paddle upsteam from Molesey Lock to Taggs Island via Hampton Court, and you'll see a very different side of the Thames.  You'll pass wildlife, tiny islands and pretty houseboats.  This guided tour lasts 90 minutes adn begins with a quick course in kayak safety.  

Bungee Jump - O2 Arena

The O2 makes for an unusual bungee setting, and this has to be one of the most surprising outdoor experiences the capital has to offer.  On arrival you're weighed, so they attach the RIGHT rope to your harness and ankles, then you're hoisted 160ft into the air...  Then it's just up to you to jump!

London RIB Ride

Board your RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) for the fastest, wettest sightseeing tour London has to offer.  Boarding at Embankment you whizz first under Charing Cross Bridge to the Houses of Parliament and then turn round and head to Canary Wharf, where the boats are really allowed to get going.  As well as seeing the Thames' historic treasures you'll also hear some interesting tidbits about them.  

iPilot - 60 Minute Flight

Get ready to take control of a huge Jet aircraft for over 60 minutes, with a realistic flight stimulator and controls in your hand. Pilot instructors will help you get a sensation of what it likes to be in command of a giant Jet.  Fly to and from over 500 different airports - or there's a list of flying experiences, such as ‘Heathrow Experience’, where you can take off from Heathrow Airport and enjoy a bird’s eye view of major landmarks of the capital before you land again.
