Herne Bay, Kent

Many fantastic aerials views of Kent may be enjoyed from hot air balloon flights over Britian's most south-easterly county.

Herne Bay is seaside town on the north coast of Kent. It is approximately halfway between Whitstable (to the east) and Margate (to the west). Herne Bay has a long and interesting history, having been recorded as early as 1100 (as “Hyman”) and enjoyed a heyday as a seaside resort in the late 19th Century. Sadly Herne Bay’s pier was badly damaged by a storm in 1978, leaving the end of the pier visible but isolated, and yet to be restored.
Suburbs of Herne Bay and villages in its vicinity include Reculver, Hillborough, Bishopstone, Beltinge, Eddington, Broomfield, Herne, Greenhill, Swalecliffe and Hampton.

Passengers with vouchers from Experience Day companies can, in many cases, choose the location of their flight from a range of take-off locations*.

Book a Hot Air Balloon Flight over Kent, or elsewhere in the UK.

Use the controls in the top-left of the image above to zoom in or out and to "move" over this part of Kent and view the ground as if from a hot air balloon flight in summer. Alternatively, steer with your mouse by holding down the left mouse button and moving your mouse across the scene. The buttons in the top-right of the image above enable you to switch between the aerial view (default), a road-map view, and a combination "hybrid" of the two - that is an aerial view with the road names added over the scene.
