How to fly drones in London (safely!)

We had the chance to work with a drone coach to experience how drones in London can be manoeuvred safely and responsibly. Without practice, we would absolutely NOT recommend flying anywhere, let alone in dense areas. In fact, there are a lot of irresponsible drone operators who make it hard for others just wanting to capture some great content.

There are rules when flying drones, most importantly you need to ensure the safety of people. Our London drone experience gave us insight into the fact that you need to practice, practice, practice!

Take a look at some of the footage, and you might like to read about what we learnt about flying drones in London and abroad here in this special digital feature. Questions and comments, as always, are appreciated below.

We had the exciting task of dipping our toes back in old familiar waters, and ended up as London correspondents for a number of Aussie breakfast radio shows.

Royal Wedding Aussies live from London

Throughout the week we talked all things royal wedding as Aussies live from London on River (Brisbane), Power FM, and a host of other stations across Queensland and New South Wales. We were a little tired by the end of it, but it was good fun.

We were also tipped-off by channel nine that they would be broadcasting live from Buckingham Palace, and I fortuitously ended up at a royal rehearsal in Windsor!

Take a look at these Instagram Stories highlights for the best of the royal wedding, Aussies live from London.

Congrats Harry and Meghan! What a lovely, sunny, romantic and historic event to be a part of.

Whitstable day trip from London

If the sun comes out we want for nothing more than to head to the seaside, and a Whitstable day trip from London hits just that spot!

Whitstable is a quaint seaside destination in Kent, just over an hour’s train ride from St Pancras (at Kings Cross).

A Whitstable day trip from London means you can enjoy quaint shopping, seafood aplenty, oysters, oysters, oysters… and best of all, there are dogs everywhere!

Our travel tip however, would be to go early because if you strike a lovely day, by around midday this little town is packed.

It’s famous for an annual Oyster festival, and to give you some idea of how popular this is, the town’s is population is around 32,000 and during this festival attracts an additional 40,000!

Take a look around at our seaside escape, and book your Whitstable day trip from London ASAP.
