About

The Ballooning Experience

Your magical champagne balloon ride over Bristol begins at the fabulous Ashton Court Estate. Carefully selected for its close proximity to the centre of the Bristol and the breath-taking views of the city that it offers - a view that can only be truly appreciated whilst gently drifting above in a hot air balloon. Passengers can be involved helping set the balloon up, before enjoying approximately a one hour flight. Chilled champagne is served after the flight to celebrate before returning to the launch site, where each passenger is presented with a commemorative flight certificate.

The whole experience takes between three and four hours. The meeting times vary throughout the year as balloon flights take place a couple of hours after sunrise and before sunset when the winds are at their calmest.

What you’ll see

As you peacefully float above the city, you will view some of Bristol’s best-known landmarks from a very special perspective. These could include Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, spanning the beautiful Avon Gorge, as well as views of the historic Bristol Docks and Brunel’s impressive ss Great Britain. The replica of John Cabot’s famous ship, The Matthew, can also be seen moored up alongside, when not sailing.

With the wind as your guide, your balloon ride may also take you above Temple Meads Station, the stunning St. Mary Redcliffe Church or Bristol Cathedral… or in a different direction you may hear the roaring of lions and monkeys calling as you drift over Bristol Zoo. You may also be lucky enough to fly over the Victorian Country House, Tyntesfield, in Wraxall. On a clear day, there may also be the chance for a spectacular view over the West Country Bridges and the new Severn Crossing.
