Tandem Skydive London

Making your day run smoothly


At GoSkydive, customers from South West London and across the UK are taken through a customer journey that cannot be matched by any other skydiving centre in the UK.

We are the only centre that specializes in jumps for first time skydivers. But what does that mean? It means that we only do tandem skydives – you won’t be competing for time and space with sports jumpers – the whole day is built around you and other first-time skydivers. We’ll consider your travel time and try and get you booked in later in the day, we’ll keep you updated with weather reports to, where possible, avoid unnecessary delays. There will be a briefing within 30 minutes of your arrival, you’ll receive full training in a simulated environment and there will be a whole team of people on hand to support you at all times.


Training and Safety


GoSkydive is the only dropzone in the UK to offer all customers specialist training on the body positions for tandem skydiving in a simulated tandem skydive training environment. Our centre is fully approved by the British Parachute Association.

The view to South West London

The view from the skydive in Salisbury to South West London is visible on clear days. That said, the jump is a good 80 miles away from South West London, so due to the curvature of the earth, it’s not easy to make out London landmarks that far in the distance. That said, the Surrey Hills can be seen to the south of the capital, and the Chiltern hills border London to the north. If you squint really hard, you can just about see the arch of Wembley Stadium!
