The technical gremlins have paid a visit to our website and it's currently down.
We're working on getting things fixed as soon as possible but if you're trying to buy or book in the meantime, please contact our call centre on 01952 252750, where one of our lovely customer service advisors will help you out.
We're really sorry for any inconvenience and will let you know as soon as we've managed to vanquish those pesky little gremlins and got our website back online.
Whoever got them wet and fed them after midnight is in big trouble!

Hot air balloon rides from over 100 spectacular UK launch sites
Introduction
about us
Since 1987 Virgin Balloon Flights has been launching passengers into the majestic world of hot air balloon rides. With over 100 launch sites throughout England, Scotland and Wales our passengers can look forward to an unforgettable airborne adventure, the memories of which will last a lifetime. Hot air ballooning is the oldest and most romantic form of aviation in the world and our Champagne balloon flights capture all the romance and endeavour of an aviation era gone by. An incredible feeling that time has been suspended as the world drifts quietly by is one our passengers will never forget. A truly unique and unforgettable gift - no two balloon flights are ever the same. 

about our balloon flights
To see what ballooning with us is really like visit our experience page. Here you can learn all about what to expect from your 3-4 hour ballooning adventure with Virgin Balloon Flights, read passenger testimonials and have a read of our pilot biographies to see who exactly might be taking you up, up and away in an iconic red Virgin balloon.

To see things from a truly unique perspective take a 360 degree virtual tour of a balloon ride.

what else we do
When we're not flying about over the beautiful British countryside we're getting involved in all things local - from sending out schools packs, attending the Virgin London Marathon with our balloons, flying at the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta and of course participating in charitable and sustainable activities in partnership with Virgin Unite - Virgin's non-profit foundation of the Virgin Group.

We've seen a few firsts in the air too, with live performances in our balloon baskets from Newton Faulkner and UK soul queen Beverley Knight.
