Alton Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Chawton House, which you may fly over on your Alton balloon ride, was owned by world-famous author Jane Austen’s brother, who also owned the cottage in the village where she lived with their mother and sister. Then known as Chawton Cottage, it is now officially called Jane Austen’s House and is a museum dedicated to her life and work.


The unforgettable adventure on board a Hampshire hot air balloon ride is the perfect opportunity to see one of England’s prettiest counties from the air.

Take to the skies from the picturesque Anstey Park in Alton and enjoy breath-taking views in every direction as you majestically rise higher and higher.
