7th January 2019    South West

Here at Aerosaurus, we are blessed to be surrounded with beautiful countryside right on our doorstep, and we love to show it off in all of its stunning glory to our passengers who join us on our highly-recommended Somerset balloon flights!

We are lucky enough to have meeting locations in Taunton and Castle Cary for our hot air balloon rides over Somerset for your convenience. With the ballooning season upon us, the flight team at Aerosaurus Balloons want to make your hot air balloon experience one to remember, so take a look at our spotlight on Somerset balloon flights and see where your airborne adventure takes you this year.

Hot Air Ballooning Taunton

When you think of a Somerset balloon flight, what comes to mind? Rolling landscapes of outstanding natural beauty? Architectural elegance in the way of historic buildings and monuments? Luckily, when you choose a flight meeting point in Taunton, you will be able to see both of those and so much more!

When you choose our balloon flights across Somerset you can expect “stunning orchards, old oaks growing alongside the stream, quaint hamlets and lush hedgerows which make up the Vale of Taunton”, as Jo Bailey, owner of Aerosaurus describes. During your flight, your pilot will fly you across the following locations to gain the true beauty of the county:

  • Wellington
  • Blackdown
  • Quantack and Brendon Hills
  • Edges of Exmoor
  • Bridgwater

Taunton balloon flights enable you to view the scenery below from a panoramic perspective.  Both of our Somerset balloon flights allow nature-lovers to fully immerse themselves in the beauty of the Somerset hills and countryside, but our Taunton flight vouchers will cover land, lakes and rivers for a truly extraordinary balloon flight experience.

Castle Cary Balloon Rides

Glastonbury Tor

Synonymous with rock bands and international popstars, Glastonbury is a town in a league of its own here in the UK. When not welcoming headline stars, this picturesque part of Somerset is a sight to behold and you can view all of it and more from the basket of your hot air balloon.

From the eye-capturing Glastonbury Tor to the ruins and remains of Glastonbury Abbey, our flight pilots will be able to point out the landmarks below so you don’t miss a thing. This area of Somerset is a brilliant choice if you love architecture, especially if you want to see it all from a different angle and from a spectacular height. The Somerset levels and surrounding countryside is an incredible stretch of land and will be sure to take your breath away with views of the following locations:

  • The edges of bordering counties; Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire
  • Mendip Hills (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty)
  • Wells and Shepton Mallet
