Lechlade-on-Thames, 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 market town of Lechlade-on-Thames is situated beside the Thames 11 miles east of Cirencester and six miles north east of Faringdon (Oxfordshire). The River Coln joins the Thames south of the town and the Thames Severn Canal and Marina are located nearby. There are two nature reserves close to the town, the Richardson& Amey Reserve to the north and The Whelford Pools to the north-west close to Fairford. About 4 miles east stands Kelmscott Manor (Oxfordshire) the Summer home of William Morris and a few miles south of Lechlade is the 11th century church at Inglesham.
