With a patchwork of fields and villages in the immediate vicinity and the shimmering sea framing the picture, see what inspired Thomas Hardy to incorporate the town in his novels, albeit under the name of Shottesford Forum.

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.

Blandford Forum and Local Attractions

There’s plenty of reasons to extend your stay on Blandford Forum – Tanglefoot, Fursty Ferret and Badger Original just to name a few! And to pay homage to these fine brews, why not head to the nearby Blandford St Mary and pay a visit to the Hall and Woodhouse Brewery, (though they have a visitor centre in Blandford Forum too).

In Blandford Forum, you’ll discover fine Georgian architecture – a result of the fire that swept through the town in 1731 that destroyed much of went before it. For an insight into the town’s history, there are three museums to choose from, but we’d suggest starting with the town museum. There’s plenty of accommodation – with some great inns and guesthouses to consider.

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.
