  • About

    Hot air ballooning is an exhilarating experience and a must try for any high flyer! To begin, meet the trusty pilot and get a full safety briefing while still firmly on the ground, then help to prepare and inflate the balloon with the other flyers ready for launch. Once prepared, fly at heights of up to 3,000 feet and gaze at the stunning countryside views which unfold below whilst enjoying the restful peace and quiet. After landing, help the crew pack the balloon away before enjoying a celebratory glass of champagne (or soft drink) and get driven back to the launch site (who knows where the craft will land? - balloons can't be steered). To conclude, receive a commemorative flight certificate to take home.

    • Recently reduced from £150 to £99 - you won't find a lower priced nationwide voucher!
    • Available Monday to Friday for sunrise flights only
    • Travel from any number of launch sites across the country
    • After landing, toast the flight with a glass of champagne or soft drink
  • Key Info

    Availability

    Weekday mornings (excluding bank holidays) from March/April to October/November. Flights take place at dawn, when the air is at its most stable. Dates fill very quickly, so book at least four weeks in advance.

    Participant Guidelines

    Maximum weight 18 stone. Minimum height 4'6''. Minimum age is 8. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Ballooning isn't suitable for pregnant women. Any medical conditions must be declared in advance.

    Weather

    Ballooning is extremely weather dependent - it is crucial to call the venue before the flight. If postponed, an alternative date and location can be arranged (please contact the operator for information).

    Duration

    Actual flight length is determined by conditions on the day. The experience normally lasts around three hours, including one hour for inflating the balloon and one hour for packing the balloon away and returning to the launch site.

    Numbers On Day

    Share the balloon with between 8 -16 other flyers, plus a qualified pilot.

    Spectators

    Spectators are welcome to watch the launch and wave you off. A pair of binoculars or a camera will come in handy.

    Dress Code

    Wear trousers, long sleeves and sensible footwear (no high heels please). Please avoid loose scarves or jewellery. Bring a hat - heat from the burner overhead can be intense. Launch and landing sites can be muddy.

    Other Info

    This voucher entitles you to a minimum of five attempts at rebooking during a one year period (from your booking), should any weather cancellation/s prevent it going ahead.

    We were really lucky with the weather, perfect conditions for a balloon flight, no wind and good visibility. Great to see the world from above.

    I've always wanted to go up in a balloon and now that I have, I want to do it again! The booking team were really helpful and on the day the pilot and his team were fun and friendly, taking away any nerves that I might have had. The flight itself was breathtaking and I even managed to get an aerial photograph of my house! Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy a memorable event.

    The experience was great. The flight team were friendly and involved all who wanted to be. The only problem was sorting out a flight date. Bailey balloon's were very helpful; the weather wasn't. Just be patient. It is worth the wait.

    What a great day up in the balloon. There was even a spare place and I was able to take my 8 year old son with me so it was even more enjoyable as he wasn't expecting it. We had champagne at 2000 feet and it was so serene and peaceful just floating along with not a care in the world. What fun!

    Whole thing was very enjoyable. I'll almost certainly do it again in a different place with different countryside to look at, and for longer if I can.

    What an amazing experience and this is due to the really professional, yet fun two guys who organize the event. Leaving from Leeds Castle was spectacular as you go from the grounds and see the Castle getting smaller and smaller in the distance. The two guys who organize the event absolutely made our day they were fun to be around but at the same time made you feel very safe and worry free. The day was bought for me by my mum and she came up with me as well and we absolutely loved it. I have to say, and this isnt often you can say this, it was faultless as well as fabulous. I would not only recommend this event but also do it again myself. Thank you to the guys involved and to Red Letter Days x

    To celebrate my fiftieth birthday I was given a hot air balloon ride as a gift. I was looking forward to it. Although apprehension about the weather conditions the balloon ride was planned to go ahead. The instructions were to meet at 4.445pm outside Leeds Castlee gates. The grounds showing the backdrop to Leeds Castle was mystical where we were met by the crew and jeep containing the basket and balloon. The mist was rising off the lake silhouetting the castle. We received our instructions about the ride and safety instructions. Then we got stuck in helping to unravel and hold the balloon whilst it filled up with cold air.Once inflated we all climbed into the basket where we practiced our safe landing technique. Then we were off. Gradually ascending to up to nearly 2,000 feet. The weather was perfect not a cloud in the sky, the sun was rising over a backdrop to a beautiful blue sky. we sipped champagne whilst watching the horses chasing voles in the fields. A day to remember

    Great to be apart of inflating balloon and packing away after landing as it completes whole experience. Incredible feeling.
