Monmouth (Back-Up Site)

About

One of our South Wales back-up launch sites, your flight may be moved here on the day.

Historic Monmouth, located in south Wales is the birthplace of King Henry V and is home to a magnificent collection of Britain's greatest naval hero, Horatio Lord Nelson's material.

King Henry V was born in Monmouth Castle in 1387, and went on to defeat the French at Agincourt. Locally he was renowned for his ability to keep the peace with the warring Owain Glendower who sought to gain control over the Welsh Marches.

Nelson, visited Monmouth twice and praised the townsfolk for their loyalty to the King. Monmouth's setting is ideal for a scenic balloon flight, the beautiful Brecon Beacons to the west and the stunning Severn Estuary to the south could both be spotted on your flight depending on which way the wind decides to take you on your airborne adventure.
