Bristol Balloons


With Bristol Balloons, you're unlikely to get a better perspective of the Clifton Suspension Bridge than when taking off from Ashton Court Mansion and floating gently away to reveal a panoramic view of the bridge spanning the beautiful Avon Gorge.

When the balloon rides head out over the Bristol Harbourside, you can think back on Brunel's fifteen year contribution to Bristol's historic waterways, which included the introduction of a new dredging and sluicing system, an enlarged and improved entrance lock, a tubular wrought iron footbridge and the engine house for the Black Rock water pumping station.

Most notable, and as the largest and most powerful ship of her time you're unlikely to miss her, is Brunel's ss Great Britain, now restored in her Harbourside dock in Bristol. Brunel's pioneering steamship was the forerunner of modern passenger liners and made regular voyages around the world to Australia and the USA.

Then, if the wind is with you, your ride with Bristol Balloons will take you over the top of Bristol Temple Meads railway station, which was (you guessed it) built by Brunel as the passenger terminal for his Paddington to Bristol Great Western Railway… or if not, you may experience some animal magic, peeping down from above over the exotic inhabitants of Bristol Zoo.

A flight from Bristol may also give you a spectacular view of two other famous West bridges, the Severn Bridge and the Severn Crossing. You can do all of this with Bristol Balloons.

Corporate Group Balloon Flights
Bristol Balloons can cater for small or large corporate groups.  Our fleet of 4 balloons offers a range of option with one for 2, 3 or 4 passengers, one that takes up to 12 and 2 that take up to 15.  If the location is suitable and there is enough space, we can sometimes fly from private property to make your flight even more special !
