What better place to enjoy hot air balloon rides in Warwickshire than from the beautiful county town of Warwick.
A quintessential English town with its imposing Medieval castle, Warwick is a wonderful place to start your hot air balloon ride experience.
Our big red Virgin hot air balloon launches from St Nicholas Park, right in the centre and directly opposite Warwick Castle, offering outstanding views of the town and the River Avon as you fly up, up and away.
As you drift higher, appreciate the beauty of the wider Warwickshire landscape from the comfort of our basket as you take in the views across to the Malvern Hills and Northern Cotswolds.
Hot air balloon rides in Warwickshire don’t get much better than this and will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.
St Nicholas Park is situated in central Warwick, just a short distance from the main public transport links and tourist attractions. The site has a number of amenities including a café, mini golf, outdoor pool and children’s play area.
