Reading Ballooning

Reading Hot Air Ballooning

Reading Hot Air Balloon Rides

Beneath the modern veneer of a bustling business city and commuter belt bastion, lies over a thousand years worth of history and culture. And how better to get a snapshot of Reading and it’s surrounding countryside than from a hot air balloon flight above it all. With a unique perspective and uninterrupted views, this is an experience you’ll never forget.

As you drift gently overhead with the breeze as your guide, take in the changing views over farmland, picturesque villages and snaking laneways. With the River Thames weaving below and the horizon calling you on, this is hot air ballooning at its best.

Whether you’re arranging a flight for yourself or as a gift, buying a gift certificate can add a layer of security. Unfortunately a lot of balloon operators are finding things financially difficult and some do not last. However, if you’ve bought a voucher then they are exchangeable and in many instances refundable. We think they’re a really smart option.

Our favourite post ballooning idea: an intimate and charming guesthouse & a bottle or two of fine wine.
