Nothing quite compares to the serenity of ballooning. Gazing down upon the fields, hedgerows and villages dappled in soft evening sunlight or tranquil early morning light is such a peaceful moment. As you slowly drift across the sky you'll hear no sound other than your fellow passengers. This is a magical moment that you will want to cherish forever so don't forget your camera to capture those unique views.
After helping to inflate the balloon, you'll take off for an hour's flight and see the world below sliding slowly by. Enjoy a traditional champagne toast, and receive a flight certificate signed by your pilot and Sir Richard Branson.
