Hot Air Balloon Flight Across Oxfordshire

Celebrate a special anniversary or birthday with a champagne balloon flight across Oxford’s church spires, colleges and stunning countryside around Oxford. It is fitting that flights take off from Oxford. In 1784, James Sadler, a pastry chef from Oxford with an interest in science became the first Englishman to fly in his own hot air balloon. Adventure Balloons have been flying from Oxford since 1995, and with special permission from Oxford City Council offer public flights from two of the city’s parks.

Where can we go on a hot air balloon flight across Oxford?

Adventure Balloons have been offering flights across Oxford since 1995 and are an exciting and unique way to the British countryside by air.

See the many colleges, the Radcliffe Camera, Carfax Tower and the many museums built in the distinctive stone. Further out, Farmoor Reservoir, Port Meadow and any remaining parts of Didcot Power Station are distinctive landmarks you may see. Flights use the South Park for evening flights and Cutteslowe Park for morning flights – this can change due to operational factors on the day.
