Champagne Hot Air Balloon Flight

It’s a bucket list staple, and here’s your chance to experience it for yourself: a hot-air balloon ride!

It’s an unbelievable feeling, floating across the majesty of the British countryside as you blast into the air then drift silently quite near to the clouds, with only the clink of champagne glasses to disturb you. Oh did we forget to mention? Champagne!
