Our Hot Air Balloon launch sites
We regularly fly from two distinct local areas
These are Area 1: the Bristol, Bath and Chew Valley area or Area 2: the Mendips and Somerset levels.
Within these areas we have a number of launch sites which will give you the best possible balloon ride over your local area. The launch sites are easy to find and are all listed below with post codes where available and links to detailed maps showing the exact location of the meeting point.
If you have booked for a group or have a premier flight, this can also be from one of our regular launch sites or from a site to suit the occasion, i.e. hotel lawn, wedding reception, local farmer's field or even your own back garden if it's big enough!
