The Balloon Ride

Go up, up and away on a magical hot air balloon ride adventure with Balloons Over Britain.

Take to the skies and find the world at your feet when you hop on board the big hot air balloon that have been the sign that summer has arrived for almost 30 years.

Find yourself on cloud nine as you enjoy breath-taking panoramic views as far as the horizon from up to 5,000 feet in the air, the only sounds those of nature and the occasional blast of the burners as you float almost silently and imperceptibly over the land below.

Is there a hot air balloon ride near me, you might ask? Well, with more than 100 stunning launch sites to choose from across England, Scotland and Wales, the answer is absolutely yes!

Once you come back down to earth, it's time to toast the hot air balloon experience of a lifetime with your fellow passengers and a celebratory glass of Prosecco.

The Important Stuff

Start Time

  • AM - As early as 5am or as late as 8.30am, depending on sunrise times
  • PM - As early as 4pm or as late as 6.30pm, depending on sunset times
  • Day - Anytime between 8am and 3.30pm (selected times of the year)

We schedule hot air balloon rides morning and evening, seven days a week during the UK ballooning season, which is March to October. This does vary in some areas and in late October some flights will take place during the day due to limited daylight hours.


You get the same hot air balloon ride experience of a lifetime no matter which voucher you buy - the difference between the three options is when you can use them.

  • Weekday Morning - Morning Flights, Monday to Friday
  • Weekday Morning Or Evening - Morning or Evening Flights, Monday to Friday
  • Any Day Morning Or Evening - Morning or Evening Flights, Monday to Sunday

All bookings are subject to availability and should be made around 6-8 weeks in advance.

Hot air balloon rides are fully weather dependent. If Balloons Over Britain has to cancel your booked flight for this reason, your vouchers are automatically extended to allow enough time to book again. Vouchers are non refundable should the ride be cancelled due to bad weather.
