Depending on the wind conditions a one hour flight can cover up to 10 miles, before you slowly start to make your way back to solid ground. After a successful journey it's tradition to raise a glass, so why not make a toast to your incredible experience when you get back to the safety of solid ground.

Hot Air Ballooning Information Everything you need to know...
Passengers must be in good health and fit enough to climb in and out of the basket. Children need to be 7 or above and 4'6 in height. Maximum weight is 17.5 stone, anyone above this restriction wishing to take part may be required to pay a supplement.
Flying season is March to October. It recommended you book at least 6 weeks in advance for your preferred take off location. Please note that meeting times flights are around either 5am or 4pm subject to availability.
Ballooning is heavily reliant on calm dry conditions, if rain is forecast or ground winds are too strong then your flight will be postponed. You will be asked to check the day before your flight to see if the conditions are suitable and the flight is going ahead.
What to wear
We recommend you wear clothes suitable for a walk in the country depending on the weather on the day of your flight. A cap or hat is also uselful to shelter a little from the heat of the burners. Passengers are often asked to help with the inflate and deflate of the balloon so you may get a little dirty. No flip flips or high heels.
Flight times vary according to the specific package you have booked
Number of people
The balloons can hold up to 12 people depending on the size of the basket.

Hot Air Ballooning Reviews
"The whole experience was easy and the balloon ride was fantastic - Stuart and the team were fab and made my son feel really involved and an excellent pilot (?) - we loved every minute of it and would absolutely recommend - in fact we already have!"
"Brilliant experience. Damian was fantastic. Really good guy with a good sense of humour. He struck the right balance of being informative and humorous at the same time. Sometimes, people can be overpowering and make people feel uncomfortable when they are in charge of this type of activity, but I have to say Damian was excellent. Would definitely recommend this to others. Thanks guys!! The whole experience was 10/10 "
