Balloon Rides From Telford Balloon Fiesta


Take to the skies for a once-in-a-lifetime hot air balloon ride with up to 30 other hot air balloons from Telford Balloon Fiesta.

Hot air balloons will return to Telford Town Park for the fourth time following the huge success of the previous three annual events.

And Virgin Balloon Flights will be there with our big red balloons, giving you the chance to actually fly once more from this spectacular festival.

Our Balloon HQ has been based here in Telford for almost 30 years and we were delighted and honoured when Fiesta organisers invited us to attend bank holiday event once again.


Getting To Telford Balloon Fiesta

Parking is permitted in any of the town centre car parks, except for the International Centre car park and Dark Lane.

Southwater multi-storey car park in Northfield Street (sat nav postcode TF3 4BZ) is closest to Telford Town Park, with further car park options available on the Park's website here. Car parking charges from £3 to £6 apply.

If you are booked to fly on a PM flight from the Fiesta, please be aware that the car parks are expected to be very busy, so allow plenty of time to get there in case you need to park further afield.

Passenger Meeting Point

After arrival at the event, please go to the large gate at the far end of the balloon arena, where there will be a Virgin Balloon Flights passenger meeting point sign. Your flight crew will meet you there and take you into the arena.

Note: In case of any changes to your meeting point, please ensure you listen carefully to the full message form the pilot on your Flight Information Line.
