3 Extreme and Amazing Activities to do In London


Nobody could ever say that London doesn’t have anything to do. Whether you love shopping, seeing the sights or taking in a show, London has more going on than most people could get around to even if they had a lifetime to do so.

But outside of all the known things to do and places to see, London also has some more extreme and eye-opening experiences for you to sample. So, if you’ve got a wild streak or just want to enjoy a unique experience, read on and find out about some of the different ways you can enjoy London.

Zip Now London

If you like the idea of flying through the air at excessive speeds whilst taking in the London skyline, Zip Now London is definitely for you. Even better, it’s only a short Tube journey from your M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City.

Zip Now London offers you the chance to fly along a 225-metre zip wire, making it the fastest and largest city-based zip line in the world! You’ll have to climb the 35-metre starting tower before you get strapped in, which, if you’re wondering, is about ten flights of stairs.

Zip Now London is an extremely professional operation and you won’t need to worry about dangling in mid-air like Boris Johnson. All you need to focus on is the very fast, very high journey ahead. It’s an amazing experience and a great way to see the London skyline if you’ve chosen one of Montcalm’s 5 Star City Hotels London.

Thames RIB Experience

If you like the thought of seeing London from the Thames, you can do much worse than the adrenaline-releasing Thames RIB Experience.

Instead of a leisurely cruise, you’ll be propelled along one of the most famous rivers in the world aboard a high-power speedboat. You’ll still get to see the sights, but you may be more focused on how outrageously fun the ride is. You’ll disembark from either Tower Pier or O2 North Greenwich, so you’re not far away with your room at M by Montcalm Shoreditch London Tech City.

There is a variety of different trips available, covering everything from Parliament to private tours to the ‘Ultimate Tower RIB Blast’, all covering different parts of the Thames and all amazing fun.

Adventure Balloons

Whilst not really extreme by most people’s measure – unless you’re afraid of heights – Adventure Balloons offers hot air balloon flights so you can see London from up on high.

It’s a great way to get an overview of the city and the calming, serene feeling as you float really can’t be matched. All take off sites are close to the Thames and the Tower Of London, so you don’t far to go from Montcalm’s 5 Star City Hotels London to take to the skies.

It’s a very special way to spend some of your time in the capital, especially if you want to see London from a totally unique perspective.
