Indulge in a stunning hot air balloon ride over Rugby and enjoy the Warwickshire countryside from the comfort of your balloon basket.
This launch site is situated near the shoreline of the beautiful Draycote Water nature reserve in lovely countryside between Rugby & Daventry.
Every August Bank Holiday, this area comes alive with the sound of gunfire when the annual “Tanks, Trucks and Firepower Show” takes place.
As you float high on your Rugby balloon ride, the market towns and rolling hills will give plenty of photo opportunities.
The historic town of Rugby, famous for the sport which takes its name and Coventry, named the 2021 City of Culture will both be on the horizon no matter which direction the wind takes you.
A hot air balloon ride over Rugby would make the perfect gift for someone with an adventurous spirit or why not treat yourself of course!
From Rugby head south on the A426 signposted towards Southam and Dunchurch. Pass through the village of Dunchurch and cross over the M45. As you leave the village you will enter a 50 mile an hour zone, continue for half a mile and the entrance to the launch site is on your right hand side. There is a Virgin Balloon Flights banner on the gate.
If you get to the Draycote Water sailing club signs you have gone to far.

If gate is open please drive in on the concrete farm road and park on the grass near the road, before the barn area.
