Exploring Somerset from the sky is an experience of a lifetime topped off with a glass of bubbly in the “Land of Summer” countryside. What better way to see this southwest county than jumping on board a Virgin hot air balloon and riding the skies at around 3000ft.

Of course, we’ve numerous Somerset launch sites, so you’re never too far from home, and with this summer threatening to be a scorcher, now couldn’t be a better time to take advantage of our regional southwest tickets, from as little as £169 per person!

You may choose to start your airborne adventure from Bristol or the beautiful city of Bath, boasting heritage, Roman remains, and the possibility of floating over the epic Stonehenge. Or, you could pick a starting point further south and fly from the famous festival town of Glastonbury or take off from Taunton, perhaps.

Wherever your hot air balloon ride begins, there is no better way to explore Somerset’s best bits than from the basket of a Virgin hot air balloon.

Store away the scrumpy, crack open the champers, and take to the skies on a Somerset hot air balloon ride!
