Appreciate the lovely views over neighboring counties Cambridgeshire and Warwickshire on your flight from Hanging Houghton with views over nearby Lamport and Brixworth. Prepare for a journey of unforgettable ballooning memories as you drift serenely...more
As residents of Hanging Houghton we have watched the balloons fly over on many occasions, and they have always fascinated my 11 year old daughter. This trip was a reward for her hard work at school this year and it did not disappoint.
What a breathtaking experience! We flew with pilot Pete Philpott who’s knowledge, skill and humour added immensely to the evening. Be prepared for a little hard work helping set up ( easy ) and packing away ( not so easy ) but it all adds...More
After waiting for the right weather conditions that fitted in with our party of sixteens' availability Pete the pilot gave us a wonderful evening floating high above Leicestershire looking down on Maidwell Hall and all the animals and fields below. A great time was had...More

The voucher for my daughter was delivered the day after I ordered it...More

Wow! Just had the most exciting evening, sailing smoothly over Milton Keynes and surrounding areas. The whole experience was so well managed, and helping to deflate and pack away the enormous red balloon afterwards was great fun too. The champagne was well deserved by all.More

Great to hear you had such a wonderful time on your balloon ride!
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave us your feedback and we look forward to maybe seeing you in the skies with us again one day. :-)
Great fun working as a group to get the balloon upright before setting up up away into the sunrise. A magical experience gliding across the skies. A great landing and fantastic toast of champagne at the end with the group. A great morning with plenty...More
