Experience an aerial adventure like never before with an incredible Sunrise Champagne Balloon Flight.
Nothing quite compares to the peaceful serenity of hot air ballooning. You gaze down over the landscape below, the fields, hedgerows and villages dappled in the soft morning sunshine. As you bask in the magical silence, you’ll float high above the ground and then drop low enough to skim the treetops. It's a perfect way to see the world from a completely fresh perspective and with someone special.
Your fabulous experience will begin by helping to inflate the balloon. Then you’ll climb into the basket and prepare to take-off for an hour's flight where you’ll see the world below sliding slowly by. After your flight and you are safely back on the ground, you will toast this momentous occasion with a glass of champagne and receive a flight certificate signed by your pilot and Sir Richard Branson.

This was my first time flying in a hot air balloon and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it! We arrived at the crack of dawn and were welcomed by the friendly team at Virgin Balloon flights. As part of my experience I helped them to inflate the balloon which was quite exciting, believe it or not! Before we took off, we were given a safety briefing and then our flight commenced. Once we were in the air, everything on the ground became smaller and the views we had were breathtaking! We had the sun rising in the background as well to add to what was a beautiful day. During the flight, our pilot provided us with a guide tour from above which I thought was educational and went hand in hand with the experience. When we landed, we were treated to a nice chilled glass of champagne which went down a treat! Overall I would recommend this experience for everyone, especially couples because the memories you take away are unforgettable. I certainly would want to do this again!

I was lucky enough to take a hot air balloon flight a couple of weeks ago. What a fantastic experience, so serene, peaceful and gentle. The early start on a beautiful sunny day meant the views from the basket as we drifted over the countryside were absolutely stunning and our pilot pointed out places of interest as we went along. Our flight lasted about 50mins which was just about the right length of time. The landing was perfect, we then helped pack the balloon away and we’re rewarded with the customary glass of champagne! I would certainly recommend this to everyone.

I was lucky enough to go on a balloon flight with friends and it was fantastic. It was even better than what I was expecting. I was shocked to find out the basket can fit up to 16 people, it is remarkably strong. I thought the flight would be bumpy but not at all. It was a smooth take off, flight and landing! We had an amazing view off the beautiful country side, it is way better than climbing up a tall building! I would love to go again!
