Guildford Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Several scenes from the 1976 horror classic The Omen were filmed in and around Surrey, the most notable location being Guildford Cathedral.


Take the experience of a lifetime and go up, up and away on a magnificent Surrey hot air balloon ride.

Breath-taking panoramic views await as you launch into seemingly endless blue skies on board our iconic big red Virgin balloon from Guildford.

From the dramatic landscapes of the North Downs to pretty villages and wide swathes of woodland and rolling fields, the sights you enjoy on your flight will never be forgotten.

Keep an eye out for Guildford Cathedral, the Tunsgate Arch or the ruins of William the Conquerer’s castle.

With the right wind on a clear day, you could even see as far away as the Wiltshire border and the very southern fringes of Greater London.

Leave the hustle and bustle everyday life behind as you drift silently through the sky with the world at your feet on a majestic Surrey hot air balloon ride experience.


Our Shalford’s Park launch site is on the A281 on the south side of Guildford.
The balloon crew will meet you at the Shalford Park sports pavilion, where parking is available.
