Customer Testimonials

Fly in a hot air balloon for a truly unforgettable experience like no other. Enjoy breath-taking views, landmarks and the wonder of nature from a new and unique perspective as you take to the skies in one of our iconic red Virgin hot air balloons. No other experience offers this unique combination of exhilaration and serenity, as you go up, up and away to drift gently across the UK’s stunning landscapes at anything up to 5,000 feet. Rising smoothly and silently towards the clouds, the only noise the occasional burst of the burners, fly in a hot air balloon to travel where the wind takes you to wonder at the sights so far below. Make memories to last a lifetime on your hot air balloon experience, which you will want to tell people about again and again. And once your flight is over and you sip Champagne after landing, you will find yourself wanting to do it all over again…



I just wanted to say that today we have had our balloon flight - WOOHOO! We had waited almost 3 years to do this and it was well worth the wait, it was spectacular. Thank you to everyone in the Virgin booking centre who kept our hopes up big time when we were losing ours, the flight team Rebbeca Cains and (crew) Dave for a fab flight and a great landing. It was fun and exciting to take part in setting the balloon up and also putting it back together again, it has made some wonderful memories. We met some lovely people on our flight that had also waited to fly, some for over a year but again I must stress never ever give up. Don't give the staff a hard time, it's not their fault and they really help wherever they can. It's our lovely british weather and dreams do come true, you just sometimes have to wait a little longer for them to happen. When they do, and they will, it will be worth the wait - take it from someone who had waited nearly 3 years. Don't lose faith people and again, thanks to all at Virgin Balloon Flights for everything.

I just wanted to get in touch to say what a wonderful experience we had yesterday on our Virgin Balloon experience in Shipston. Russell was an absolute gentlemen and every bit a legend. He made our experience so fun and it will be something that we’ll never forget. So please pass on our thanks to Russell. We had such a wonderful time.



Just a quick email to say thank you for providing such an amazing hot air balloon flight experience. We had three tickets for the balloon flight at Colwick Racecourse yesterday for both myself, my dad and my mate and all three of us had such an amazing time. We would just like to say that our pilot Rebecca Cains was absolutely fantastic throughout. We couldn’t have asked for a better day and will certainly remember this as an experience of a lifetime.
