Peterborough Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Peterborough was the UK’s leading producer of bricks for much of the 20th century. It’s most famous is the mass produced ‘Fletton bricks’, from which an estimated 23% of the UK’s housing stock is built of.


Our spectacular Peterborough hot air balloon rides launch from Ferry Meadows, at the heart of the beautiful Nene Park.

Take life higher and go up, up and away on an airborne adventure you will never forget.

Hop on board our iconic big red balloon for the experience of a lifetime, as you travel wherever the wind takes you over some of the UK’s most stunning landscapes.

Get your camera ready or simply relax and take in the 360 panorama of picturesque lakes, meadows and woodlands, with the city skyline to the east.

See if you can spot one of the miniature steam trains puffing along the Ferry Meadows Railway as you launch.

Surrounded by gorgeous natural habitats and patchwork fields, nothing compares to the wondrous feeling of a Peterborough hot air balloon ride.


Travelling on the A1 or on the Parkway system around Peterborough, follow the brown tourist attraction signs for Nene Park, or the country park symbol.

From either direction, you will come onto Oundle Road A605 and you will then come to a roundabout which is signposted for Ferry Meadows.

Take this exit and follow the road to the end where you will find the main car park.

Park in the main car park and the crew will meet you at the gate leading to the meadow at the end of the car park. Please note there are car parking charges at Ferry Meadows – the Nene Park Trust website for details.
