is a densely populated coastal county, lots
of people, spirit, humour, lots to see -
from land and air.
Brighton is a seaside town on the extreme
north-east corner of the Wirral peninsular.
It was a very popular summer holiday and
day trip destination from Liverpool
before cheap and fast international travel
made destinations with "guarenteed sunshine"
(such as Spain) accessible. In common with
other UK seaside towns, New Brighton no-longer
sees the large crowds of visitors that it
once did. There is also less shipping to
watch today than in the past. Attractions
in this area include the "New Palace" amusements
at New Brighton itself and also the long
sandy beach nearby, golf courses, country
parks, and tourist attractions in nearby
New Brighton is easily reached by road from
Liverpool, via the Mersey Tunnel (Toll),
or via the M53 which terminates at Wallasey
just a few miles south of New Brighton.
This is not the most obvious locatioon for
Hot Air Ballooning because this is a coastal
location - with windy "coastal" weather
at times. Residents of New Brighton will
probably need to travel further inland to
some of the beautiful open spaces of the
Wirral or Cheshire to enjoy a Hot Air Balloon
ride. Check with your local operator for
to buy a flight voucher online.
