Silverstone, Northamptonshire

Flying over the countryside in a hot air balloon is an unforgettable experience. It is the most romantic form of flight, and a fantastic new perspective of the world below !

Silverstone, a medium-size village located approximately 15 miles south of Northampton off the A42, is normally a quiet rural community. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book and in the Middle Ages its livelihood was based on trading in timber. Nowadays, it is most noted for the hectic week in the year when the nearby Silverstone Circuit is host to the British Grand Prix. Hot Air Balloon flights are generally operated in the early morning and late evening in summer (due to weather conditions) so you might not be able to fly over the British Grand Prix race itself. It would, however, be a spectacular way to end the day – with a hot air balloon ride for yourself and friends.

Passengers can choose the location of their flight after purchasing a voucher accepted for flights all over the UK. Prices depend on number of passengers - more passengers cost less per person.
