Hot air balloon rides over Bristol with WonderDays

Ashton Court Estate, Long Ashton, Bristol, BS41 9JN
Hot Air Balloon Ride


A hot air balloon ride over Bristol is a fantastic experience, giving you the chance to see the world from a completely different perspective than on foot or by car.

With a launch site at Ashton Court, home to the famous Bristol Balloon Fiesta, you'll enjoy views of the city and beyond.
Morning and evening flights are available throughout the ballooning season of March to October, on weekdays and weekends.

Your balloon ride experience will start with the opportunity to help prepare the balloon for flight before taking to the skies.
As you drift through the skies, all is calm and peaceful (apart from the burners!) where you'll enjoy gorgeous views and take plenty of photos. Because you move with the wind, you won't feel a breeze, making it a truly magical experience.

Upon landing, you'll have the chance to help deflate and pack away the balloon and then you'll celebrate the occasion with a prosecco toast with your fellow passengers.
A Bristol balloon ride is an amazing experience not to be missed.
