Swindon Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Famous British film actress and 1950s ‘blonde bombshell’ Diana Dors was born and raised in Swindon.


A sky-high adventure awaits on a stunning Swindon hot air balloon ride from the beautiful Lydiard Park.

Go up, up and away in our big red balloon and experience breath-taking views you will never forget.

Watch acres of glorious parkland get further and further away beneath the basket as you head wherever the wind takes you across breath-taking Wiltshire countryside.

Swindon itself stretches away to the east while to the west lies Bristol and the border with Somerset.

With the right south-east wind on a clear day, you may even be able to see the North Wessex Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the far distance.

No other flying experience comes close to the unique combination of exhilaration and relaxation you get when you take to the skies on our Swindon hot air balloon ride.


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.
