FlyLondon 25-a-go zip wire planned for Archbishop’s Park

A giant zip wire offering views of Parliament and Lambeth Palace could be installed in Archbishop's Park this summer if plans are approved by Lambeth Council.

Archbishop's Park

The City Zip Company has applied to Lambeth Council for permission to install the 224-metre zip wire for four months this summer.

Four parallel zip wires would run north to south above the playground and football pitches in the park, with riders charged 25 for the experience.

The launch tower in the north-west corner of the park would be 33 metres high.

If approved, FlyLondon will be open to the public for 14 weeks this summer, with capacity for four riders every two minutes.

Lambeth Council is seeking to increase income from commercial events in its parks, but Archbishop's Park did not feature in the events strategy approved by the borough's cabinet last summer.
