Speke, Merseyside

Merseyside is a densely populated coastal county, lots of people, spirit, humour, lots to see - from land and air.
Speke is the location of Liverpool's John Lennon airport. Hot Air Balloon flights are generally restricted around commercial airports. For example, there are restrictions on the height (altitude) at which balloons can be flown in areas around the approach to runways. This is why we wouldn't expect to see much hot air ballooning in close proximity of Liverpool Airport.

Speke is an area of south Liverpool located south of Liverpool city centre and west of the heavy industrial areas of Widnes and Runcorn. Speke itself is a very pleasant area that includes river front walks (its on the north shore of the River Mersey), the historic Speke Hall (National Trust), and Liverpool Airport - from which there are regular flights to many UK and European destinations.
Residents of Speke may need to drive away from the immediate area of Liverpool Airport to enjoy a hot air balloon flight. That should not be a problem as the beautiful Cheshire and North-Wales countryside is close-by.
