Somerset (Back Up Site)


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

Based near the world-famous town of Glastonbury, the historic village of Street is a perfect place start your Somerset airborne adventure.

Offering serene pictures of rural perfection, experiencing the skies around here is something you'll never forget.

A stone’s throw from historic Cheddar and just a hop skip and a jump from beautiful Devon, you can be sure a hot air balloon ride in Somerset is a feast for the eyes.

There’s no better way to explore one of Somerset’s most famous areas than from the comfort of a hot air balloon basket.


There are signposts for Millfield School from the A39 Glastonbury road roundabout at Street. They direct you onto the B3151 Somerton Road. A mile from the roundabout, go straight through the traffic lights.

About a mile from the lights take the road on your left, signposted “Sports Complex”. Follow this road for half a mile until you reach the entrance for Millfield Sports Complex and Medical Centre on your left.

Drive through the entrance (also signposted as Millfield Athletics Track) and follow the signs to the Headmasters House. Wait in the car park just to the south of the Indoor Swimming pool, where you will be met by the balloon crew and pilot.
