Fun & Interesting Facts

Norwich was the first place in England to produce and print a local newspaper back in 1701. It was also the first town in the UK to introduce postcodes back in 1959, before they were rolled out across the country during the 1960s.


Take life higher on a wonderful Norwich hot air balloon ride for an unforgettable way to enjoy the landscape of this beautiful city and the surrounding Norfolk countryside.

Go up, up and away on a breath-taking airborne adventure unlike any other flying experience.

Launching from the centrally located Earlham Park, you can really appreciate the city’s stunning architecture and history as you go up, up and away.

See if you can spot as many of the ‘Norwich 12’ as you can. These famous landmarks have stood proudly in the city for centuries and include Norwich Castle, Dragon Hall, Norwich Cathedral and The Guildhall.

As you head up and out of the city limits, glorious views of the Norfolk landscape stretch as far as the eye can see.

On a clear day with the right wind, you might even see as far as the famous Norfolk Broads in the distance.

Take to the skies on our iconic big red Norwich hot air balloon for a flying experience you will be talking about for years to come.
