The Great British countryside is a wonder to behold and a part of national heritage to be celebrated and cherished.

Luckily, we have ballooning UK meeting locations in several of the country’s most stunning spots.

Ballooning Locations UKBallooning in Devon

We run regular balloon rides over both Mid and East Devon and South Devon. Mid and East Devon are rich with culture, history, and amazing landscapes that will give you plenty to see from amid the skies. Mid Devon features the South West’s famous Dartmoor and Exmoor offering 353 square miles of incredible natural flora to see, as well as impressive sights such as the Wellington monument, Castle Neroche and Hembury Hill Fort. East Devon is a dynamic area of varied natural and historic attractions. With majestic cliff faces and crashing waves, colourful heathland, and sites such as the Wooded Combes, all of which can be taken in from the balloon basket. Not only this, but an East Devon balloon ride will also allow you to catch a glimpse of the breathtaking Jurassic coastline and Axe Valley. South Devon features 60 miles of unspoilt coastlines, and our flights also soar over the national Area of Outstanding Beauty awarded South Hams. With the outstanding tors and granite rock formations of Dartmoor, which holds the highest land point in the whole United Kingdom! Take in the ancient history of the region as you gaze at stone circles and castles across the area. For unspoilt countryside and heritage in abundance, Mid, East, and South Devon balloon rides are the perfect choice.

Ballooning in Dorset

Our balloon rides in Dorset always wow customers, and for a whole host of very good reasons. Dorset’s brilliant coastline stretches over 140 kilometers, and much of it has been granted World Heritage Coast status. With chalk down-land creating stunning rock effects due to the sea, many sparkling rivers weaving through the land, woodlands, meadows, and heathlands, this varied area creates a balloon flight full of wonder.

Ballooning in Somerset

Somerset is known for its delicious ciders and cheeses, and although we certainly encourage you to try a taste of the Westcountry after a balloon ride, there is so much more to experience during a hot air balloon flight in Somerset. This region boasts a number of Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty covering such varied landscapes as long golden coasts, mystical moorlands, and woodlands. Somerset is also rich in heritage, featuring one of Britain’s most famous historic sites – King Arthur’s Cadbury Castle and also the home of Lorna Doone. With so much to see, Somerset is the ideal ballooning location.

Ballooning in Cornwall

Cornwall is an iconic area of the South West countryside. Almost one third of the region has been granted Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status due to its wonderful sandy beaches, green rolling hills, stunning cliffs and famous areas such as Bodmin moor, even the unique island of Lundy. We meet right in the centre of the county, so you can experience all of the interesting areas of Cornwall, including King Arthur’s magical Tintagel, Beacon Hill and idyllic areas such as Port Isaac and Clovelly. Cornwall is famous for a reason, and this makes it one of the most sought-after balloon ride locations in the country.

Ballooning in Wiltshire

We’ve all heard of the unbelievably beautiful spectacle carved into the Wiltshire cliffs that is the White Horse, but not many of us are lucky enough to have seen it. How better to do so than from the balloon basket? With a balloon flight in Wiltshire you can see this and so much more, including rural country of over 3,500 square kilometers, long-establishes local market towns, and World Heritage site Stonehenge, whose mystic forces are told around the world. Crop circles, haunted houses, and the English cathedral city of Salisbury provides a fusion of prehistoric mystery and modern vitality to make Wiltshire one of the most exciting UK ballooning locations.
