Leeds Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Leeds gave the world one of the most famous board games in history – Cluedo. Its inventor, Anthony E Pratt, took his idea for a game called ‘Murder’ to Waddington’s Games in Leeds back in 1944. The team loved but couldn’t put it into production until after the Second World War, when it was finally released in 1945.

About

Take flight on a truly unforgettable Leeds hot air balloon ride for a spectacular airborne adventure.

With the stunning city skyline of Leeds to the west and glorious open countryside to the east, a balloon flight from Temple Newsam Park offers the best of both worlds.

Admire sweeping views across gorgeous landscapes as you go up, up and away on the experience of a lifetime.

If the wind takes you south, keep an eye out for sights such as the River Aire and the Aire and Calder Navigation canal.

To the east lies a pretty patchwork of woods and farmland, with views over Castleford and even, if it’s a very clear day, as far as the North Sea and the River Humber.

A Leeds hot air balloon ride over beautiful West Yorkshire really will leave you on cloud nine, long after you come back down to earth.

Directions

From the M1:
Exit the M1 at Junction 46 and take the A6120 towards Leeds city centre. At the roundabout where the dual carriageway finishes, take the second exit (A63). About 500 yards further down on the A63, turn left where it is sign posted Temple Newsam Country Park. The launch field is just through the park walls, with the car parks on the left and right as you drive through.

From Leeds city centre:
Temple Newsam Country Park is about four miles from the city centre and is sign posted off the A63 on the right hand side. Drive all the way through the park, as if you were going to leave, and park up in one of the car parks to the left or right just before the park walls at the exit.

Please do not park in the pay and display car park. If the balloon crew are not already on site, please wait in the car parks and they will be with you soon.
