Devon is, of course, the land of cream-teas and, dare we say, the widest choice of Virgin Balloon Flights launch sites in any county, blessed with no less than eight carefully-selected locations from which to explore the beauty of this glorious part of the country on a hot air balloon ride.
As you float over the city of Exeter, you’ll take in beautiful sites from a high, such as the River Exe, rolling countryside and wonderful architecture this charming city has to offer.
Also steeped in rich, ancient history, Exeter has something to offer visitors of all ages – it is almost two cities rolled into one!
Founded by the Romans almost 2,000 years ago, Exeter is recognised as one of England’s oldest cities, with examples of its ancient pedigree still visible today. Many of our customers have been amazed by the picturesque views hot air balloons provide – no matter how well you know this area at ground-level, a balloon ride will give you a fresh, unique perspective.
Surrounded by both Dartmoor and Exmoor, the city is the perfect central-point from which to fly in any direction, take in the breathtaking local scenery and tranquility, and later return to a vibrant, exciting hub.
Enjoying a hot air balloon ride over Exeter provides the best of both worlds, with ancient and modern complementing one another perfectly to ensure a memorable experience you’ll cherish for many years to come.
