With our flights now fulfilled by Virgin Balloon Flights, launch sites in Devon have changed. See the Locations page on Virgin Balloon Flights website for an up to date list of locations.
South West Balloon Flights have three meeting locations in the rural county of Devon at Exeter and Tiverton.
There are so many wonderful sights to be seen whilst flying over England’s fourth largest county including the Jurassic coastline, ancient woodlands, and castles. Clear days provide unparalleled views across this rolling landscape and out to sea – even as far as Lundy Island; and animal lovers will be particularly keen to see the wide array of wildlife from such a rare perspective.
