Our spectacular Peterborough hot air balloon rides launch from Ferry Meadows, at the heart of the beautiful Nene Park.
To the East lies the city centre, with such spectacular sights such as Peterborough Cathedral, Longthorpe Tower and the historic cast iron bridge crossing the River Nene.
Our Peterborough balloon flights launch site is in the centre of Nene Park, just three miles from the city centre.
Beautiful lakes, meadows and woodlands make it a beautiful spot to relax and enjoy before or after your balloon ride.
See if you can spot one of the miniature steam trains puffing along the Ferry Meadows Railway.
A northerly wind could take you towards Castor Hanglands National Nature Reserve, while to the South and West lie pretty patchwork fields.
In fact, Peterborough is surrounded by nature reserves, full of beautiful wildlife and landscapes to admire on your hot air balloon ride.
Our Peterborough pilot Rebecca Cains and her crew look forward to taking you on a truly unforgettable flying experience.
