Shelsley Walsh Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

When Shelsley Walsh Speed Hill Climb first opened in 1905, it wasn’t actually how fast cars travelled up the track that was recorded. Up until 1913, cars had to have four seats, with full trim and raced up the hill with a full load of passengers. Winners were decided by multiplying the cars track time in seconds by its horsepower, then divided by the total weight of the fully laden car. Some cars wouldn’t even make it up the hill at all.

About

Spectacular landscapes stretching out in every direction await as you take to the skies on a stunning Worcestershire hot air balloon ride.

Go up, up and away from our beautiful history launch site at Shelsley Walsh – the oldest motorsport venue in the world.

It’s claimed on a clear day you can see 15 different counties from the top of the 1,395 foot Worcestershire Beacon, so just imagine the breath-taking panoramic vista from the basket of a hot air balloon as you climb even higher.

Nothing compares to the airborne adventure of a balloon ride across this beautiful part of Worcestershire.

Keep an eye out for the Malvern Hills, rising dramatically in a nine-mile ridge out of the flat Malvern plains.

This really is a fairy tale region with much to excite and inspire the balloon explorer, guaranteeing a memorable flight whichever direction the wind takes you.

Directions

The post code for the meeting place is WR6 6RP.

From Great Witley, take the B4203 for Bromyard. Follow this road to Stanford Bridge and once over the bridge, take the first turn left (sign posted Shelsley Walsh). DO NOT turn off before this turning. Follow this road until you have gone just past the entrance for the Hill Climb.

The field we normally use is directly opposite the Shelsley Walsh church, by the post box. Do not drive up to the church itself.
