Want to See London from Above?
There is nothing more peaceful than floating in a hot air balloon, looking down on the landscape of town or country without being immersed in all the noise and bustle. Imagine doing this over the cityscape of London and seeing all its parks and historic buildings from a totally different perspective and even taking a peek into the Queen's backyard. Even with the amount of air traffic over London it is still possible to book this fantastic experience. What could be a more romantic way of celebrating a special occasion or even a marriage proposal? Champagne can be supplied too!
Hot Air Balloon Rides in London with Adventure Balloons
Adventure Balloons is a Hampshire-based company and is the only ballooning company with a license to operate in London air-space. Its flying season is short, from April to August only, with flights on weekday mornings. Take off at dawn for an exhilarating journey, floating across the city landscape. Adventure Balloons have a centrally located take-off point next to the City Hall Office of the Mayor of London, only a short distance from the Tower of London. Ballooning has remained virtually unchanged since the first flights 200 years ago and you will still be enjoying your ride from within a traditional wicker basket. Visit their site to see amazing pictures from previous flights and find all the booking details.
Things to Know Before you Book Hot Air Balloon Rides in London
Ballooning is a fantastic experience but it does have limitations, especially within a city area. Whenever you book a hot air balloon ride in London remember that all flights are dependent on weather conditions and the correct wind direction. With the proximity of tall buildings and airports in and around London, hot air balloon flights are more likely to be cancelled or postponed than in countryside areas. The perfect weather conditions are light winds, without rain and, of course, good visibility. If you are unfortunate enough to have your flight cancelled you will be put on a standby list for the next available space. Gift vouchers can be bought from Adventure Balloons, which come with a detailed 20-page map pack, giving you all the important information you need for your trip. To make your day even easier, the team will meet you at an agreed Underground Station venue and transport you to the site.
How to Get the Most Out of Your London Hot Air Balloon Ride
To enjoy your flight in comfort it is important to wear sensible clothes, much as if you were going for a walk in the country. Avoid skirts, shorts and loose jewellery, as getting into the basket can be a bit of a scramble. The best footwear are Wellingtons or walking boots, as takeoff and landing sites can be muddy. If you want to really immerse yourself in your flight experience, why not help the crew with the preparation and inflation of the balloon?
