Milton Keynes Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

One of the best known ‘new towns’ of the 1960s, Milton Keynes was built with the aim of being an attractive place to live. As a result, nobody in Milton Keynes is ever more than half a mile from a park and it has a whopping 15 lakes. It also has more bridges than Venice (yes, the one in Italy).


Take life higher with a stunning Milton Keynes hot air balloon ride, launching from one of the town’s most beautiful parks.

Experience the airborne adventure of a lifetime when you go up, up and away in our big red balloon from the picturesque Willen Lake.

With stunning open countryside to the north and east, unforgettable views await as you drift majestically and almost silently through the skies.

Or the wind may take you over parts of Milton Keynes itself, offering views of familiar landmarks from a new and unique perspective.

See if you can spot the famous Bletchley Park – once the top secret home of home of World War II codebreakers and Colossus, the world’s first computer.

No other type of flight compares to the unique wonder of a Milton Keynes hot air balloon ride.


From M1, exit junction 14, towards central Milton Keynes on H6, Child’s Way. At the third roundabout turn right onto the V10 road, Brickhill Street. Then at the first roundabout, turn right towards Willen Lake and park at the car park where the balloon crew will meet you.

If you are asked to attend the Secondary Launch site, after turning onto the V10 Brickhill Street, continue straight across three roundabouts and take the next right, signposted Peace Pagoda Car Park, where the balloon crew will meet you.
