Bishop Auckland Ballooning

Bishop Auckland Hot Air Ballooning

Bishop Auckland Hot Air Balloon Rides

Take to the skies on a hot air balloon flight over County Durham and arguably some of the finest countryside in the country. As you rise gently up, take in the unfolding vista before you, as homely patchwork fields surrender to the wild beauty of dales and moorlands.

As streams snake and rivers meander below you, bustling market towns and historic landmarks come into view. With such diversity in the region, your Bishop Auckland balloon ride will be as surprising as it is invigorating. This is stuff that dreams are made of. Memories too, and they’re yours for the making.

Bishop Auckland Ballooning Options:

Virgin Balloon Flights Callington
Flexible bookings, champagne toasts, the option to assist them in inflating and deflating the balloon and a luxury gift voucher are just a few reasons to consider Virgin. And the best bit? Despite being a large company, each flight is intimate and made to feel special just for you…

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.

Bishop Auckland and Local Attractions

This ancient market town has been the seat of the Bishop of Durham since the 12th Century, and a visit to his home at Auckland Castle, a few miles outside the town centre. Relaxing in 800 acres of parkland, the castle is open to the public and provides for a great day out.

Back in Bishop Auckland, stroll the eclectic streets, and if you’re in town on a Thursday or Saturday, head to the markets. Be sure to make your way to Market Place to view the Grade I listed town hall and to find a bite to eat in one of the many eateries – the perfect way to while away a few hours reliving the adventure of hot air ballooning in the skies above.

Surrender to the romance of it all…

Even if you’re a local, why not make the most of an unforgettable day by relaxing that evening on a romantic getaway. Let someone else do the cooking and the washing up. Instead, recline back into the afterglow of a hot air ballooning experience that sets the mood quite like nothing else…

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