London is about to play host to the world’s fastest city center zip line


Ah London.

The weather may not be much better than our own, but you've got to admit, the skyline is pretty spectacular.

However, it can be easy to forget this when you're wandering down a packed Oxford Street surrounded by a sea of concrete.

Well, get ready to experience London from a whole new perspective because Zip World are bringing a double zip line to the English capital, allowing you to catch those birds-eye views from 115 feet high.

And that's not all – the ride will be 225-metres-long, making it the fastest city-centre zip line in the world.

Those brave enough to take the ride will be able to see London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, the Gherkin, and The Shard as they fly over the city at 50 mph. 

Zip World London opens on 6 July for 12 weeks and tickets are on sale now.

That's our August Bank Holiday sorted.
