About

See Bristol from the most unique vantage point with the oldest hot air balloon operator in the area, Virgin Balloon Flights!

Taking off from Aston Court, home of the famous Bristol Balloon Fiesta, a hot air balloon ride from here will give you incredible views, such as of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and one of the world’s most famous sailing ships, the S.S. Great Britain but to name a few.

You’ll be on this adventure with pilots local to Bristol so they’ll be able to give you interesting facts about the vibrant city whilst also answering any questions you have about the surrounding area.

Your flight lasts for around an hour, depending on weather conditions and suitability of landing sites, but you should allow at least four hours for the whole experience. This includes your pilot safety briefing, balloon preparation and packing away, the flight itself, a Prosecco toast after landing and travelling back to the original launch site afterwards.

 A spectacular Bristol hot air balloon ride will provide wonderful memories for years to come.
