Bath Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Bath has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987 but it is also where an actual planet was discovered. German astronomer William Herschel was at his home in the city when in 1781, when during his search for double stars, he instead discovered Uranus.


Take flight over one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the UK when you go up, up and away on a magnificent Bath hot air balloon ride.

Experience this breath-taking city like never before when you soar majestically overhead in our iconic big red balloon.

Go wherever the wind takes you on a truly unforgettable balloon ride experience that you will talk about for years to come.

See if you can the Roman remains, historic buildings and famous baths as you experience picturesque views that will stay with you forever.

The experience of a lifetime, nothing compares to the unique combination of serenity and exhilaration you get from our Bath balloon flights.

As well as the extraordinary city itself, views of the stunning Somerset countryside stretch out in every direction.

You may even catch a glimpse of nearby Stonehenge – one of the English Heritage wonders of the world, or Salisbury Plain with its array of flora and fauna.

Whichever direction you fly, your Bath hot air balloon ride experience is one you will never forget.

Please meet the balloon crew in the top north east corner of Royal Victoria Park.

If driving, follow the one way system inside the park until you reach the large open grass areas. These are located on the opposite side of the park to the children’s Adventure Playground.

The balloon team will enter the park from the entrance on Weston Road, adjacent to the zebra crossing leading to the Golf Course & Public Restrooms.

Be advised that the meeting place is in the main Royal Park as described and not in front of the Royal Crescent building.

For passengers booked on AM flights please note that there are parking restrictions in Royal Victoria Park.

The best place to leave your vehicle is in Charlotte Street Pay & Display Car Park just south of the Royal Crescent. The postcode for the entrance to the car park is BA1 2NE.

Once you have parked your cars, exit the car park by the top left (west) exit, walk across the road and through the main park entrance, past the needle obelisk and into the park.
