Ever wondered how London looks from the sky?

Then you might want to check out this footage shot by a bald eagle flying over some of the capital's most iconic buildings in Europe with a 4K camera attached to its back.

Launch points used included the Sky Garden at the Walkie Talkie, otherwise known as 20 Fenchurch Street, Sushi Samba at The Heron Tower,Trafalgar Square, City Hall and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

It's not the first time we've seen this of course. Last year a white tailed eagle took video footage of its flight around the capital on behalf of animal charity the International Union for Conservation of Nature. But it's the sort of thing that never gets boring.

This time around the video was shot to showcase a feature in Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, which includes a new ‘eagle vision’ tool offering players a birds-eye perspective to locate enemies and key features at distance.

Check out the video below.
