Following a record-breaking year for London tourism, with the capital’s visitor attractions experiencing a 12% increase in visitor numbers**, VisitLondon.com curated its very own top ten list to celebrate the milestone.
The Director of VisitLondon.com, Julie Chappell, said, “London has had a blockbuster year, experiencing a surge in tourists not seen before by any other post-Olympic host city in the world. During 2013 we saw record numbers of visitors to the capital, who have enjoyed the museums, art galleries, and attractions featured in our new and innovative film.”
“VisitLondon.com is a vital tool to millions of visitors to the city, so it’s important to continually create new and inspiring content. This film uses impressive footage achieved by UAV, giving fantastic visuals of our iconic attractions. We’re really excited to share it and encourage visitors to London to experience the things that continue to excite and draw many millions of people each year.”
Advertising agency London Creative CEO, Richard Teideman, says "It's been amazing working with London & Partners. The challenge was not just to do the top ten attractions, but to do something that is dramatically different. Filming with the UAV creates motion that is unlike anything else - the movement and ways in which you can play with this technology is truly groundbreaking. It's been a thrill to pioneer and at the same time to show these iconic London landmarks in a different light."
Jamie Cameron, HeliPOV Company Director, said, “We were really excited about working on this project, as it is not often we get an excuse to fly in such amazing locations. You can’t just put a UAV up in Central London without raising a few eyebrows. However by flying at un-sociable hours and working closely with all of the locations in conjunction with NATS and the CAA we got to see London from these unique angles – and the results did not disappoint.”
