AboutWhen you take a hot air balloon ride in Bath from the moment you take off, often with other local balloonists, from Royal Victoria Park you will have remarkable views. Drift slowly alongside the Circus and the famous Royal Crescent, a World Heritage site built in the late 1700's.
Nestled in a sheltered valley Bath is surrounded, like Rome, by seven wooded hills. A beautiful city, rich in Roman and Georgian heritage, taking a hot air balloon flight from Bath and viewing the city from above is an experience not to be missed.
If you are lucky enough to have the wind heading in the right direction you may get to fly directly over the city and see the Roman Bath's the Thermae Bath Spa or Pulteney Bridge, one of only two bridges in Europe built to support shops - you would have to go Florence to see the other! Ballooning is serendipity, you never know exactly where you might fly over or end up.
As you leave the city behind you can look ahead to viewing the stunning countryside the surrounds Bath. Depending on wind direction your balloon ride may take you over the Cotswolds, the Mendips, or even a gentle progression along the historic Kennet & Avon Canal.
Our aim is to give everyone a pleasant, enjoyable and safe flight. Ballooning is an adventure, a magic carpet ride, something not to be rushed. The flight will last for about one hour, the whole outing usually takes between three and four hours. Chilled Champagne or fruit juice is served in flight with our complements and an in-flight photograph may be purchased afterwards as a keepsake of your adventure. Each passenger receives a commemorative flight certificate signed by the pilot. Our experienced retrieve crew, who are in radio contact with the balloon, meet us on landing and will return you to the launch site.
Age is no barrier to enjoying this spectacular sport, our passengers ages range from nine to ninety plus! Passengers may like to help lay out the balloon which all adds to the experience. A balloon basket is a brilliant platform for photography, so do bring a camera or camcorder, replacement batteries and plenty of memory chips!
*We fly mainly between March and October but we do have vouchers available to purchase if you would like to fly during the winter months. Just click the Exclusive Flights button above (as this balloon flies all year round), e-mail us or give us a call if you need any further information.
