The beautiful Peak District awaits you on a Virgin Balloon Flights hot air balloon ride from the small pretty town of Bakewell.
Just 30 miles from Derby, passengers can expect unforgettable views across the Derbyshire countryside and with the right wind direction, as far as Matlock, Chesterfield and Buxton. A clear day could even bring the cities of Sheffield and Nottingham into view on the far horizon.
Soar over Bakewell’s stunning historic buildings, such as Chatsworth House, Haddon Hall and All Saints Parish Church, as the River Derwent and River Wye wind their way through the landscape below you.
When put into a sat nav, the postcode for Bakewell Showground will take you to Bakewell itself but to the wrong side of the showground to where we launch.
To get to our launch field, instead please follow the signs for Bakewell Showground and Livestock Centre. As you drive out of Bakewell on the A6, you will see the entrance to the showground just as you exit the 30mph zone.
