Shipston-on-Stour Rugby Club (Back-Up Site)

About

One of our back-up launch sites for Warwickshire, your flight may be moved here on the day.

Warwickshire is a county that boasts strong historical connections alongside stunning rural views. Launching into the skies above Shipston-on-Stour will offer breathtaking sights of the distant Cotswold Hills and countryside beyond.

Stratford-upon-Avon, a county town steeped in literary history, is best seen from above. Find out if Shakespeare’s legend lives on in the air as vividly as it does on the town’s streets.

You might sail over to Chipping Norton or out towards Edge Hill and Banbury, either way you will need your camera at the ready to capture your aerial adventures of a lifetime.

Imagine drifting on the wind along the Cotswolds, seeing the county of Warwickshire from an entirely new perspective – from anything up to 5,000ft in fact!

See for miles around, right across the Midlands plane towards Birmingham and the Heart of England. Depending on the direction of the wind on the day of your balloon flight you might be lucky enough to spot the curve of the Malvern Hills or see over to neighbouring Northamptonshire and Oxfordshire.

A balloon ride over Warwickshire will most definitely be an unforgettable memory that you will treasure forever.
