Wetherby Racecourse (Yorkshire)
The Racecourse, York Road
Located in West Yorkshire between Leeds and York, our Wetherby launch site will give you a new perspective on this fabulous county as you view it from the skies.
You'll launch from Wetherby Racecourse from where the rolling landscape opens up beneath you. As you float gently on the breeze, here are a few landmarks you can look out for. The medieval Wetherby Castle and the historic St. James Church, which dates back to the 12th century are both worth seeing from the skies. On a clear day, you may even catch a glimpse of the nearby Lacey Grove, named after the famous Battle of Britain flying ace who was born in Wetherby. If the wind is on your side, you may even float over the River Wharfe, which meanders its way through the heart of the town.
As you enjoy your hot air balloon ride, be sure to take a moment to appreciate the tranquility and peacefulness of the Yorkshire countryside. You may have visited this ever popular country many times before but have you seen it from a birds eye view? Well now's your chance!
