Take to the skies from Lydiard Park for an unforgettable hot air balloon ride over Swindon.
Enjoy drifting up, up and away from this beautiful historic parkland, as the Palladian house and Georgian walled garden disappear below your balloon basket.
Swindon will stretch away from you to the east and which ever way the wind takes you, you’ll enjoy views of the stunning skyline.
As you leave behind the ancestral home of the Viscounts Bolingbroke, you will drift out of Swindon and over the patchwork Wiltshire countryside so just relax and enjoy the view.
Visit the Lydiard House and Park website for more information about the house.
From junction 16 of the M4 head towards Swindon and follow the signs to Lydiard Park (not the House).
Please use the entrance to the park that is off Hook Street. Park your car and meet the balloon team in the overflow car park.
The launch field is immediately on your left through the entrance.
If the gates are locked, please stay with your vehicle and wait for the balloon crew who will be able to unlock them.
