Quedgeley, 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 large village of Quedgeley, once a farming communuity, is situated to the south west of Gloucester and to the west of the Bristol Road (A380). To the north-west of Quedgeley lie the River Severn and Gloucester & Sharpness S.Canal. The canal continues south through the Slimbridge Wetlands Centre about 8 miles away. Quedgeley is easily accessible from the north and south of the county from junction 12 of the M5 motorway and there is a local ‘park & ride’ provision nearby for journeys into Gloucester.
