Wiltshire is a rural county covering an area of approximately 3,500 sq km. It’s full of superb countryside, market towns and famous chalk carvings and because of this, it’s a fantastic place to take a hot air balloon trip.
Our balloon flights meet at various places in Wiltshire meeting at Salisbury and Larmer Tree Gardens on the outskirts of Shaftesbury.
Salisbury is a traditional quaint English cathedral city with strong medieval roots that is predominant throughout the city. Salisbury boasts five rivers. The Nadder, Ebble, Wylye, Bourne and Avon all run through Salisbury. It’s also home to the world’s oldest working clock!
The beautiful Larmer Tree Gardens dates back to the 10th Century and is one of the most beautiful locations to take off from, as it offers a spectacular starting point. The gardens were created by Lieutenant-General Augustus Henry Lane Fox Pitt Rivers in 1880 as a ‘pleasure ground for public enlightenment and entertainment’. They were the first private gardens opened for public enjoyment in the United Kingdom. Today the gardens boast many Victorian buildings, vast woodland and even an open-air theatre!
A balloon flight in Wiltshire offers stunning views of river valleys, ancient woodlands and numerous Roman roads. On a clear day, you may be able to see Salisbury Cathedral, Stonehenge and The New Forest. Flying from this part of the UK can make your balloon flight experience with us even more spectacular!
