South West Balloon Flights
Balloon Rides Over Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, Bristol, Bath, South Wales, Dorset & Wiltshire

Hot Air Balloon Rides in South Wiltshire

With our flights now fulfilled by Virgin Balloon Flights, launch sites in Wilshire 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 Wiltshire – Larmer Tree Gardens & Salisbury Leisure Centre.

The chalk hill carvings of white horses are perhaps the favoured sight of passengers flying over this spectacular county but there are many other highlights which make Wiltshire one of the most popular meeting locations for those wishing to see the rolling hills and green landscapes of South West England from the sky; including the famous World Heritage site of Stonehenge and the winding river Avon.

Balloon Rides meeting at the Larmer Tree Gardens – Tollard Royal, Nr. Salisbury, Wiltshire
