Wrotham, Kent

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

Wrotham is a small yet interesting and attractive village in north-west Kent. Despite its location just off the motorway network it is easily missed due to its small size. If you take the trouble to visit you’ll find narrow streets of old houses (plus some more recent ones, of course), shaded by many leafy trees during the summer months. There is also a pleasant recreation area and all the usual traditional features of village life, such as pubs and a manor house. Despite its modest appearance today, Wrotham has much history stretching back to the times of the ancient Britons, and throughout English history. The Archbishops of Canterbury used to have a palace in Wrotham (of which little remains today). This is also said to be the place at which King Henry VIII received news of the execution of his wife Anne Boleyn (1536). Further information about the history of Wrotham has been made available in both book and video formats – not yet on YouTube, as far as we know.
Villages surrounding Wrotham include Fairseat, Stansed, Knockmill, Woodlands, Crowdleham, Heaverham, Borough Green and Wrotham Heath.

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.
