Gloucester, 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 !

Gloucester, an historic city and the ‘county town’ of Gloucestershire dating back to 681 when Ethelred founded the Abbey of St Peter, is situated to the south west of Cheltenham and north of Stroud. The City and its outer limits, including the M5 motorway, are sheltered to the east by the Cotswolds whilst from the north to south-west flows the River Severn joined from the west by the River Leadon. Gloucester’s majestic Cathedral is located to the north of its centre and the docklands with its National Waterways Museum to the west.
