Fun & Interesting Facts

William Shakespeare has been credited as introducing almost 3,000 words to the English language. Estimations of his vocabulary range from 17,000 to 29,000 – double that of the ‘average’ person today.


The experience of a lifetime awaits when you take to the skies for a Stratford-Upon-Avon hot air balloon ride.

Enjoy breath-taking views over Shakespeare country and admire the birthplace of the world’s most famous playwright from a unique perspective.

Beyond the town limits, endless vistas of glorious countryside stretch out in every direction.

Drifting skyward, you might catch a glimpse of William Shakespeare’s home on Henley Street, his wife Anne Hathaway’s thatched cottage or even the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.

Set in the very heart of beautiful Warwickshire, you might even find yourself floating on the wind towards the stunning Cotswolds to the south.
