Hot Air Balloon Flights - in Kent

Perhaps you're visiting Kent for a holiday, weekend-break, day out, or business event. This delightful corner of the English coast includes the modern English Channel ports of Folkestone, Dover and Ramsgate together with many other attractions - both coastal and inland. Kent also includes most of the "Cinque Ports" of late Anglo-Saxon England. As local historians know, initially the three coastal Kent towns of Sandwich, Dover and New Romney received special concessions from King Edward ("the Confessor") in return for certain favours including the provision of ships and sailors when required by the crown. Hythe and Hastings (East Sussex) joined the original three ports to form the "Cinque Ports".

We have featured a selection of locations in Kent together with impressions of aerial views of each - though necessarily views that might be seen from hot air balloons (due to the proximity to the coast and altitude of typical pleasure flights in hot air balloons). The placenames on the left link to pages mentioning just some of the some interesting places from which you may wish to fly (or fly over and or view from the air) around Kent, England.

You may not get to see the coast close-up as a safe landing (on land!) will be a priority for your flight provider. As with all outdoor pursuits, safety is paramount. Enjoy your hot air balloon ride !
