Your Doncaster hot air balloon rides experience starts at the picturesque 18th century Cusworth Hall, set in beautiful parkland on the outskirts of Cusworth village, South Yorkshire.
The charming Grade I listed Georgian country house has been described by some as ‘the jewel of Doncaster’s crown’ and seeing it from the sky is a real treat for airborne adventurers.
As you rise into the sky in our big red hot air balloon, see if you can spot the Strawberry tree, Redwood and Ginkgo at the neighbouring Shrubbery Walk, a beautiful coppice of ornamental trees.
Throughout your balloon flight from Doncaster, you’ll have dramatic views of the town, including Doncaster Racecourse – one of the oldest horse racing centres in Britain with races going back to the 16th Century.
Another likely sight from the sky is the River Don, a 70 mile long river flowing eastwards from the Don Valley all the way to Stainforth.
You may also spot the 12th Century Conisbrough Castle, or for the football fans amongst you, maybe a glimpse of Keepmoat Stadium, home to the Doncaster Rovers.
If you were looking for a hot air balloon ride over Sheffield, our Doncaster hot air balloon rides are the closest location by far and with the right wind on a clear day, could offer views of the Sheffield skyline in the far distance.
The wind may also take you over the nearby town of Sprotborough, surrounded by an abundance of beautiful countryside to enjoy from a new, sky-high perspective.
Following your hot air balloon ride, Cusworth Hall has a charming tea room where you can relax and reflect on your adventure with a delicious home-baked cake or pastry.
The sky’s the limit when flying in this area of outstanding natural beauty, with guaranteed unforgettable sights to enjoy in whichever direction the wind takes you.
Located two miles north of Doncaster off the A638 Doncaster to Wakefield road, Cusworth Hall is signposted from the A1 and A638.
Please park your car in the visitor car park where a Virgin Balloon Flights representative will meet you.
