Your magical Bristol balloon ride promises views of some of Bristol’s well-known landmarks from an entirely new perspective as you float gently aloft.

Your flight could begin at the historic Ashton Court Estate, located just outside central Bristol, offering breathtaking views of the city even before your feet have left the ground.

The impressive Ashton Court mansion house is surrounded by 850 acres of mixed woodland and a deer park, which has been in existence for over 600 years! This is something which can be truly appreciated gradually from a hot air balloon. This carefully selected site guarantees awe-inspiring views no matter which direction you drift.

Within a matter of seconds after taking off from the picturesque scenery of the historic estate, you will be quite literally blown away by the views surrounding you.

These could include The Clifton Suspension Bridge, which is the symbol of the city of Bristol, spanning the beautiful Avon Gorge and from a hot air balloon, can be appreciated from a completely new angle. Brunel’s Clifton Suspension Bridge, a grade I listed structure, which has attracted worldwide visitors for almost 150 years.

Tour / Activity Description


As you fly over the historic Bristol Docks, you may also see Brunel’s equally impressive SS Great Britain, the world's most exciting and accessible historic ship. The SS Great Britain was launched in 1843 to provide luxury travel to New York and has safely rested in its Bristol home since 1970. Alongside, when not sailing, the Matthew is moored up - a replica of John Cabot’s famous ship and its journey to Newfoundland 500 years ago. You also may glimpse the Wills Memorial Building of the University of Bristol, situated at the top of Park Street - one of the last Gothic buildings in England.

The wind could take your flight in any direction, but you can rest assured in the knowledge that a launch from any of the specially selected sites, you are guaranteed breathtaking scenery and an album full of magical memories. Each balloon flight is unique and the landing site is carefully decided by your pilot during the flight.
