Fun & Interesting Facts
Rutland Water is the UK’s man-made lake and one of the largest in all of Europe, similar in size to Windermere.
A spectacular spot to start your Leicestershire hot air balloon ride, a flight from Rutland Water is an experience you will never forget.
Go up, up and away from the edge of this beautiful reservoir, surrounded by glorious natural habitats stretching out for miles in every direction.
The wind blowing north would take you across the water and miles of unspoilt countryside, dotted here and there with pretty villages such as Upper Hambleton.
With stunning vistas as far as the horizon, keep an eye out for landmarks such as Oakham Castle and Barnsdale Wood
To the south lies more open countryside as you float towards the town of Corby. See if you can spot the the 140-year-old Welland Viaduct – the longest brick-built viaduct in the UK.
