The South West is synonyms with ballooning, especially iconic cities such as ancient Bath and beautiful Bristol – known as the hot air balloon capital thanks to the International Bristol Balloon Fiesta, which is Europe’s largest free balloon festival attracting over 500,000 people every August.
We also fly from glorious Gloucestershire where you can experience the stunning Cotswolds from the sky, with balloon rides from Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Cirencester.
Besides Bristol, we also have two more perfect Somerset ballooning locations, including Glastonbury and Taunton – both perfect spots to admire the unspoiled countryside of rural Somerset.
Heading into neighbouring Wiltshire, we fly from Lydiard Park in Swindon which boasts 260 acres of incredible parkland.
Hot air balloon locations in Dorset include Shaftesbury – one of England’s most ancient towns.
Venture further down to Devon and Cornwall towards Plymouth and you can launch in our big red balloon from Tiverton, Liskeard, South Brent and other picturesque locations to take in the incredible countryside of the British riviera.
Your South West ballooning adventure awaits….
See you in the skies!
