London Hot Air Balloon Rides

Experience the London skyline and take life higher at any of our launch sites situated around the outskirts of the capital.

On a beautiful clear day with the right wind, our closest London hot air balloon ride launching from St Alban's offers fantastic views of Canary Wharf and the rolling Hertfordshire countryside.

Or why not launch from Brentwood in Essex, conveniently located just off the M25? This is the ideal place to hop in a basket for breath-taking views over London’s neighbouring counties.

London Hot Air Balloon Ride

While we would love to fly a hot air balloon in London, we stopped offering flights directly in the capital itself many years ago.

Visibility, airspace restrictions, wind direction and wind speed restrictions made it almost impossible to get balloons up in the capital’s bustling centre.

That's why you hardly ever see a hot air balloon over London.

However, we go up, up and away at many awesome locations just outside the big city and around the South East – we’ve listed them all on our handy balloon map below.
