Worcester Hot Air Balloon Ride

Fun & Interesting Facts

Worcester used to be one of the UK’s biggest and most important glove-making areas. Some of its finest gloves were made by hand in people’s own cottages in the villages surrounding the city itself.


Enjoy the experience of a lifetime when you take life higher on a spectacular Worcester hot air balloon ride.

Launching from the racecourse in centre of this beautiful city, watch the majestic River Severn get smaller and smaller as it winds through the historic buildings.

Keep an eye out for the imposing 12th century Worcester Cathedral and the black and white Tudor houses of New Street and Friar Street.

As you gently drift higher over the city skyline, miles of beautiful countryside comes into view on all sides.

No other flying experience compares to a hot air balloon ride, with its unique mixture of serenity, adventure and excitement.

If the wind takes you to the south west, our pilot might even be pointing out the site of the famous 1651 Battle of Worcester.
