Henley on Thames
A hot air balloon ride from Henley-On-Thames offers a truly remarkable and unique perspective of the surrounding area. As you ascend into the sky, the town's idyllic location on the River Thames becomes apparent, with the winding waterway stretching out in both directions.
From above, the surrounding countryside is a patchwork of green fields, hedgerows and winding lanes, dotted with charming villages and hamlets. The historic market town of Marlow can be seen to the east, with its iconic suspension bridge spanning the Thames.
To the west, the Chiltern Hills rise up from the landscape, providing a stunning backdrop for the flight. The beech woodlands of the hills are particularly beautiful during autumn, when the leaves turn vibrant shades of gold and red.
On a clear day, the distant skyline of London can be seen in the distance, providing a stark contrast to the peaceful rural setting of Henley-On-Thames. To the south, the landscape flattens out towards the Berkshire Downs, where you can see the famous Uffington White Horse carved into the hillside.
As you float silently above the treetops, you may be lucky enough to spot some of the local wildlife, including deer, foxes and birds of prey. The peace and tranquillity of the flight is only occasionally interrupted by the roar of the burner as the pilot adjusts altitude, providing a truly unforgettable experience that will stay with you forever.
