Our iconic big red balloon launches from the pretty town of Shipston-On-Stour, right in the Lea of the Cotswolds, offering views stretching for miles across stunning countryside in every direction.

Have your camera at the ready or simply relax and take in the glorious vistas only a hot air balloon ride in the Cotswolds can offer.

Set on the edge of the beautiful part of the country, depending on the wind direction you could keep an eye out for sights such as the National Trust Hidcote gardens, the Rollright Stones or Chastleton House.

Head skyward and make memories to last forever on your majestic ballooning in the Cotswolds experience.
