Wellingborough, 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 !

Wellingborough, a small town located 11 miles from the county town of Northampton on the north side of the River Nene, dates from the 6th century and is mentioned in the Domesday Book under the name “Wendelburie”. Formerly a centre for leather and shoe manufacture, it now has a more mixed economy based around light manufacturing. A Heritage Centre and a nearby Narrow Gauge Railway Museum feature among local attractions. Wellingborough is a great place from which to arrange a hot air balloon ride. Depending on the wind direction on the day, you’re likely to be able to see much of the River Nene and local water features, picturesque villages in the area, and possibly even a stately home or two from the air. Enjoy !
