Nottingham Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

While probably most famous for the Robin Hood folk legends, Nottingham has a few more contemporary claims to fame. High street pharmacy, health and beauty chain Boots was born as family-run pharmacy in the city back in 1849, while HP sauce was invented in a packing factory in the 1890s.

Ibuprofen was also invented in the city by a former Boots pharmacy apprentice, Stewart Adams in 1961.

About

An unforgettable airborne adventure awaits when you take to the skies on our Nottingham hot air balloon ride.

Our iconic big red balloon launches from Nottingham Racecourse, set in the grounds of the beautiful Colwick Country Park.

Watch the winding River Trent get smaller and smaller as you go up, up and away wherever the wind takes you.

To the east lies miles of stunning unspoilt countryside, with wooded areas to the north of the city and rolling patchwork fields to the south.

And a bird’s eye view of the Nottingham cityscape is all but guaranteed as you float majestically upwards.

Take life higher with the Nottingham hot air balloon ride of a lifetime from Virgin Balloon Flights.

Directions
