Berkeley, Gloucestershire

Gliding peacefully across beautiful countryside early on a summer morning, or in the evening is an unforgettable experience. Unlike other aircraft, you can watch the hot air balloon being assembled before your eyes - just like a giant tent ! Then climb aboard and admire the view from the basket - no doors closed, or windows to sit behind, it's all out in the fresh air. Fantastic !

The Gloucestershire town of Berkeley is located 5 miles west of Dursley and 18 miles south-west of Gloucester. It is situated between the M5 motorway and the south bank of the River Severn. The town stands on a small hill in the Vale of Berkeley with Berkeley Castle located to the south west quite close to the Jenner Museum (originator of vaccinations). A camping site is situated to the west of the M5 motorway and east of the A38 close to the Michael Wood Services. Beyond Berkeley, along the B4066 is the inland port of Sharpness and Newtown.
