Soar over the beauty of Bath

Nestled into the southwest of the country, the beautiful city of Bath is a combination of architectural beauty and stunning rolling countryside.

Springs have sprung

Much of the architecture dates back to the Georgian times of the 18th Century, and it is well known for the natural hot springs that flow underneath the town.

The hot spring waters were first discovered by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, and by flying overhead in a hot air balloon, you may even get to see the steam rising from the rooftop pool of the Thermae Bath Spa, which is a popular place of relaxation for both tourists and locals. People visit from around the world to enjoy the benefits of the mineral rich waters.

A novel approach

Bath’s shops have been the talk of the country for centuries, as famous resident Jane Austen first spoke about Milsom Street (a main shopping street in the centre), in her 1818 novel ‘Persuasion’. If you take to the streets after a hot air balloon ride, you can step back in time and the world of the famous writer by exploring the Jane Austen Centre.

Ballooning brilliance

With so much to see, what better way to soak up the sights than by soaring through the skies, looking down from the perfect vantage point of the basket of a hot air balloon? You could glide over the collection of boutiques and shops brimming with vintage clothing, and take in the outstanding pieces of architecture.

Floating through the air, you will be perfectly placed to spot all the main attractions, and get to enjoy them from a completely different angle.

Taking to the skies of Bath would give you access to sites including the stunning Bath Abbey, which saw the first King of England be crowned. Also, voyagers can take in the architectural wonder of Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge, which is one of the most beautiful bridge structures in the world.

Hot air balloon rides have grown in popularity over the years, often given as a unique gift experience, as they provide a different overall experience of a town or city, as well as being a novel way to take in your surroundings on a wider scale.

Take the time to make sure you have all essentials with you before you set off on your hot air balloon ride, so that nothing that distract you from taking in the sights and getting the most from the experience.
