Knebworth Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Over two nights at Knebworth, British band Oasis played to 250,000 in massive concerts that defined the ‘Britpop’ area – a record held until Robbie Williams played three nights at the same venue seven years later. About 2.6 million people applied to buy tickets – 5% of the British population at the time.


Take life higher on an unforgettable Hertfordshire hot air balloon ride and enjoy the experience of a lifetime.

Our iconic big red balloon launches from Knebworth Park, just outside the town of Stevenage, with gorgeous countryside views stretching out in almost every direction.

Go up, up and away on an airborne adventure unlike any other from the stunning grounds of this stately home.

Once in the air, admire the beautiful landscapes as you go wherever the wind takes you, with only the occasional sound of the burners breaking the almost silent serenity.

Depending on which way you travel, keep an eye out for such sights as the spot on the A1 under which lie the Roman Baths at Welwyn, or the beautiful Hatfield House.

Fly high on an magnificent Hertfordshire hot air balloon ride adventure you will never forget with Virgin Balloon Flights.


From the A1(M) exit at Junction 7 towards the Hotel and Knebworth Park.

Please park outside the gate and wait for the balloon crew to arrive. We only have permission to be in some parts of the park so please do not carry on into Knebworth Park even if the gate is open.

Novotel (by the entrance to the park) are happy for us to use their facilities if you need a toilet or refreshments
