Rotherham Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

The acting career of movie and TV star Sean Bean began in Rotherham. His first stage performances were in Rotherham College plays while studying a drama course and after a performance at Rotherham Civic Theatre, he won a RADA scholarship in 1981


Take life higher for a stunning South Yorkshire hot air balloon ride across spectacular countryside.

An unforgettable airborne adventure awaits as you go up, up and away on our iconic red balloon.

Sitting on the eastern edge of the beautiful Peak District is our launch site just north of Rotherham, with glorious views of both town and countryside and views of the imposing Wentworth Woodhouse.

On a clear day with the right wind, the magnificent rolling hills and picturesque valleys of the Peak District itself could come into view.

Or you might spot the city skyline of Sheffield to the south or any number of smaller towns and village scattered across this lovely part of Yorkshire.

Our Yorkshire hot air balloon rides offer the flying experience of a lifetime, as you drift majestically through the skies wherever the wind takes you.


From the M1, exit at junction 35 and take the A629 Upper Wortley Road signposted for Rotherham. Follow this road for approximately 1.5 miles, and then turn left onto Admirals Crescent. After 100 meters, you will see the column on your left.

Please park on the small grass area in front of the column. If the ground is wet, please park along the road, making sure not to block access. The pilot and crew will meet you by the metal gate in front of the column.
