We went to visit our lovely Stratford-upon-Avon launch site last month and saw just why this south Warwickshire start point for an airborne adventure is one not to miss. A balloon ride from Stratford Racecourse gives you a unique bird’s eye view of Shakespeare’s home town and a sky high tour of this typically English landscape.

The award winning course (2010 award for best small racecourse) which has hosted steeple chase since 1755 sits just to the west of the town centre and offers the perfect open space to start your voyage.

What’s more, if you book to fly from Stratford Racecourse you’ll get the opportunity to download a 2-4-1 race day voucher to return for four legged fun later in the year for half the price.

Treat someone special to a Virgin Balloon Flights voucher and take to the skies from Stratford Racecourse.
