Whitchurch Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Whitchurch is widely considered to be the home of the world famous Cheshire Cheese, even though it’s in Shropshire.


Go up, up and away in our iconic big red balloon for a Shropshire hot air balloon adventure you will never forget.

Launching from the pretty market town of Whitchurch, experience glorious views of rolling countryside whichever way the wind takes you.

Drifting majestically into the skies, you will enjoy 360-views across some of England’s most beautiful rural landscapes on our stunning Shropshire hot air balloon rides..

Keep an eye out for the beautiful Brown Moss nature reserve, first formed over 10,000 years ago and a haven for wildlife.

Right on the border with Cheshire and only a few miles from Staffordshire, a balloon ride from Whitchurch on clear day could offer stunning vistas across three different counties.
