Hot Air Balloon Rides in Bath

Virgin Balloon Flights has flown alongside us in Bath from the same launch sites for years.

For a full list of up to date launch sites from Virgin, visit the Locations page on their website.

Fly from the heart of the beautiful Georgian City of Bath. Launch from Royal Victoria Park on one of our Bath balloon flights and fly over the beautiful city with its world famous Roman Baths, Pump Rooms and the spectacular Bath Abbey.

From here you may fly over wonderful Somerset countryside including many lovely typical English villages such as Lacock, Castle Coombe, the market town of Bradford-on-Avon and the historical stones at Avebury. The Kennet & Avon Canal goes through Bath and has some wonderful tea gardens and pubs along its banks.

Your first balloon 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 57 acre 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! After your flight, 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.
