Tiverton Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Back in 1816, the Heathcoat Lace Factory was established in Tiverton by John Heathcoat, an industrialist with a skill for inventing machinery, which took lacemaking from a cottage industry to factory mass production. Although destroyed by fire in 1936 and rebuilt, the business remains in operation today as Heathcote Fabrics.


Adventure awaits when you go up, up and away for an unforgettable Devon hot air balloon experience.

Take to the skies from the beautiful market down of Tiverton and enjoy breath-takingly beautiful views in every direction.

Leave the stresses of everyday life behind as you float majestically and silently, except for the occasional roar of the burners, up into the Devon skies.

Keep an eye out for Tiverton Castle and the winding Rivers Exe and Lowman as you climb higher.

To the north lies the stunning Exmoor National Park, while to the south you the right wind might mean you catch a glimpse of Exmouth or Dartmoor.

No other flying experience compares to the unique feeling of exhilaration and serenity of taking flight in our Devon hot air balloon.


Take the A3126 Bolham Road south from the A361 Tiverton by-pass. Drive over the first roundabout and past East Devon College.

The entrance to Tiverton Rugby Club is signposted on the right hand side before the next roundabout.

Please park in the rugby club car park and await the balloon pilot and crew, who will meet you there.
