Bailey Balloons, Champagne hot air balloon rides, launch from the beautiful and unforgettable Georgian city that is Bath Spa. Set within the rolling Somerset countryside and bursting with world famous attractions, which include the 2000 year old Roman Baths, Pump Rooms and the spectacular Bath Abbey.
Your first flight in Bath will be a magical ballooning experience and will begin in Royal Victoria Park, just outside the heart of Britain’s finest Georgian city and next to the impressive Royal Crescent with the famous crescent of houses and the fabulous Royal Crescent Hotel. The 57acre park was formally opened in 1830 and was named after the young Princess who was visiting Bath at the time.
The park plays host to some hugely popular outdoor events such as the Bath Flower Show, Bath International Music Festival, the Children’s Festival, Bath Literature Festival and the Bath Film Festival.
When ballooning in Bath, if you are lucky you may drift over another of Bath's famous landmarks, Pulteney Bridge, which is one of only two bridges in Europe built to support shops. The other is in Florence!
A launch from this specially selected site may see you drifting over the wonderfully beautiful Somerset countryside, offering views of many lovely typical English villages such as Lacock, Castle Coombe and the market town of Bradford-on-Avon.
World renowned for its architectural merit and home to over 5,000 ‘listed’ buildings the views from a Bath hot air balloon flight are promised to be inspiring and unforgettable!
No sooner than you have left behind the beautiful city you will be struck by the outstanding views of glorious rolling countryside on your champagne hot air balloon flight. You may drift over the Kennet & Avon Canal and be able to wave to people enjoying the waterways below.
Bath balloon flights may take you and your party gently over the Cotswolds, Mendips or many other surrounding areas of magical natural beauty.
Bath is a city full of inspiring museums, galleries, exhibitions and attractions! Why not bathe like the Romans in the thermal waters of the Thermae Bath Spa or treat your taste buds at Bath’s oldest house at Sally Lunn’s Refreshment House and Museum? Or pop into the Jane Austin Centre’s regency tearooms for a spot of afternoon tea whilst taking a glimpse inside the world of Bath’s most famous resident.

Thank you so much for our amazing flight on Monday 17th May. The evening was beautiful and the flight was perfect and getting to fly over Bath too was a fantastic bonus. Most importantly my mum had the time of her life, it was a dream come true and so I just wanted to thank you for making the whole event so wonderful. I will be recommending you to everyone I know who expresses a desire to see the world from a balloon!
Thank you again and I hope you have a successful and enjoyable summer of ballooning.
