Warwickshire & Gloucestershire

  • Say Cheese!
  • Unrivalled Views!

Close to the Cotswolds, and yet within convenient driving distance of the major midland towns and cities, our launch sites in the ‘Heart of England’ include Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Evesham and Moreton-in-Marsh.

The surrounding countryside is some of the most beautiful in England, made all the more distinctive by its Cotswold stone villages for which the region is so well known and loved.

Stratford-upon-Avon

At Stratford-upon-Avon we launch from the race course on the south west edge of the town. Launching from here, we are often treated to a spectacular birds-eye view of Stratford itself, a favourite destination for tourists, with its many half-timbered buildings and Shakespearian history.

Warwick & Moreton-in-Marsh

Less than 10 miles from Stratford is our launch site at Warwick School. Famous for its castle, Warwick is again a popular venue for visitors to the region. Should the winds carry the balloon towards the castle, you will have the benefit of looking down upon the tourists who have climbed endless steps to reach the top of the battlements!

Moving south into the Cotswolds, you discover our venue close to Moreton-in-Marsh. Just a mile or so to the west of the town is the Fire Service College, and it is from their grounds that we launch. The rural landscape of this region is most beautiful, almost surrounded as we are by the Cotswold Hills. Whether the winds carry us north, back towards Stratford, or south into the hills themselves, the scenery is nothing short of magnificent.

Vale of Evesham

Finally, we come to our venues in the Vale of Evesham. We have two locations in this area – one at The Wood Norton Hotel & Restaurant, and the other at Crown Meadow in the middle of Evesham, next to the River Avon. As we launch we see Bredon Hill to the south and the Malverns rising away to the west, whilst the Vale of Evesham lies tranquil with the River Avon meandering quietly through the landscape.

The venue we fly from on any given day is determined by the wind direction, and deciding which launch site will give us the best flight. Balloons cannot be steered! Consequently, passengers need to attend whichever venue we determine to use – please click the button below for more details.
