Lydney, 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 !

Lydney, a town in the Forest of Dean stands on the A48 Gloucester to Chepstow road and extends south-east to Lydney Harbour. To the west is Lydney Park with beautiful gardens Roman ruins and the village of Aylburton. Many of the ships against the Spanish Armada were built here of the oak trees from the Forest of Dean. To the east is a hill fort and to the north The Dean Forest Railway Museum. Although it is a busy industrial centre it also benefits from Bathhurst Parklands and Primrose Hill Recreation Grounds.
