Where can I fly my drone in the UK?
Having grown bored of flying within the boundaries of your own garden, you are probably itching to take your drone further afield, but it can be difficult to know how to do this and stay within the law. In October a film maker fell foul of new laws regarding the flying of camera drones in public places and was fined £1,225 for flying his DJI Phantom over Hyde Park.
Help is now at hand with a new website which allows you to search places and attractions by name, city or country to see if you are allowed to fly your drone there. For example, most of the National Parks such as the Cairngorms, Dartmoor, Exmoor, The Lake District, The Peak District and The New Forest allow the flying of drones. However, a lot of London parks including Richmond, St James's and Greenwich do not.
The website has been created by AttractionTix, the online ticket provider, and it can be found here at:
