Returning to the Estate this autumn is the spectacular hot air balloon drive-in evening event. You’ll have the chance to see the stunning Longleat Estate at sunset and experience a panoramic, vibrant display of hot air balloons against the backdrop of the iconic House.

Up to 30 hot air balloons will be tethered across the banks of Half Mile Lake, ready to ignite their burners in a dramatic, musical showcase. The best part; you can stay in your cars to enjoy it. This separately ticketed event is an exclusive opportunity to take in the glowing sights from the comfort, safety and privacy of your very own car.

Due to the nature of the event, and extremely limited capacity, the Drive-In Night Glow will not be included with a Day Ticket or Annual Pass. The event is a separately ticketed, evening experience.

Alongside the drive-in, there will be restroom facilities (which will be manned all evening by a cleansing team) as well as some tasty food huts. So you can stretch your legs, take in the stunning Estate at twilight, and treat yourselves to some indulgent snacks.

As with all hot air balloon events, the Drive-In Night Glow is weather dependent. High winds can cause serious risk to the balloons and their crews. We will ensure to keep our social media channels up to date and send out emails if it is deemed no longer safe to go ahead.

To bring so many hot air balloons together from all over the UK we work with a specialist hot air balloon company called Exclusive Ballooning. Without them, and the pilots and crew that take part, the Drive-in Night Glow simply wouldn’t be possible.

£19.95 Adults
£14.95 Children

Entry from 6:30pm.
Balloon inflation from 7:45pm with Night Glow starting from 8pm.
