Northampton Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

From the late 18th century until just after World War I, Northampton was the centre of the UK’s shoe and leather industry, with a shoe-making history stretching back almost 900 years.


A truly breath-taking experience awaits when you go up, up and away on a Northampton hot air balloon ride.

Glorious countryside views stretching for miles in every direction await as you take to the skies in our iconic big red balloon.

Launching from the beautiful Lamport Hall and Gardens to the north of Northampton, enjoy a 360 panorama of some of the UK’s most beautiful landscapes.

Other spectacular sights to look out for include the beautiful Pitsford Water and the many pretty rural villages scattered among the patchwork fields.

Or the wind might take you further south, towards Northampton town itself or the stunning Delapré Abbey.

You might even spot a steam train puffing along the tracks of the Northampton and Lamport Railway.

Whichever way the wind takes you, the memories from your Northampton hot air balloon adventure will last a lifetime.


From junction 2 of the A14 or junction 15 of the M1, Lamport is on the A508 between Maidwell and Brixworth.
As you drive into the village, turn onto High Street opposite The Swan pub. Pass the church on your left and then turn right into the open gate of Lamport Hall, opposite The Rectory. Then turn immediately left through the archway and into the stable yard, where you can park your vehicles.
Once parked, walk out of the stable yard and turn left past the Hall's front door, where the crew will meet you on the front lawns.
Please be considerate and do not park or walk anywhere else on the grounds.
