Colchester Ballooning

Colchester Hot Air Ballooning

Colchester Hot Air Balloon Rides

Where better to enjoy the delights of one of earliest forms of flight than over Colchester, Britain’s oldest recorded town? With a hot air balloon flight over Essex you’ll be rewarded with gorgeous and eclectic views, that are entwined with tangible history and intrigue.

As you drift overhead, take in places of interest such as Colchester Castle, Coggeshall, a mecca for all things antique or Braintree, a busy market town that itself has a history worth discovering. Perhaps in the distance the North Sea will shimmer and vie for your attention as your experience gently continues on. Whichever way your Colchester ballooning adventure takes you, the memories will stay with you forever.

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.

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.
