With our flights now fulfilled by Virgin Balloon Flights, launch sites in Cornwall have changed. See the Locations page on Virgin Balloon Flights website for an up to date list of locations.
South West Balloon Flights have two meeting locations in Cornwall – both of which are just off the A30.
Famed for its fishing villages, pasties and uninterrupted coastline; Cornwall forms the tip of the south-west peninsula of England and contains many interesting nooks and crannies which can be viewed with ease whilst flying over this fascinating county in a balloon. There are numerous highlights whilst exploring Cornwall from the air including St Michael’s Mount in Marazion and the Mên-an-Tol standing stones near Madron.
