Alton Hampshire Hot Air Ballooning

Alton Hot Air Balloon Rides

Rise gently above the gorgeous Hampshire countryside to take in a tapestry of history, romance and stunning natural beauty. Lifting off from the bustling market town of Alton with its mixture of historic buildings and contemporary additions, get ready for a visual feast!

Take in Chawton House, the home of Jane Austen, quaint villages and winding laneways that snake through quintessential patchwork English countryside. With the New Forest, the cities of Winchester and Basingstoke and historic airfields all within range, whichever way the breeze takes you, you’re in for an unforgettable balloon flight.

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.

Alton and Local Attractions

Familiarise yourself with the rich local history with a stop at the Curtis Museum on the town’s High Street. Here you can discover everything from Roman artifacts through to Anglo Saxon buckles! You might also consider a visit to Chawton to learn more of the famed novelist Jane Austen, who spent the final eight years of her life here.

For another brush with history, take a stroll around St Lawrence Church which became part of the English Civil War’s Battle of Alton when Royalists were taken by surprise and had to retreat here to defend against the unexpected Parliamentary attack. For a relaxing way to reflect on your balloon flight overhead, consider heading to Rotherfield Park, 12 acres of gorgeous gardens in East Tisted where you can stroll through the horticultural efforts of six generations and enjoy an afternoon tea. Very civillized and very perfect.

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.
