Attenborough, Nottinghamshire

Gliding peacefully across beautiful countryside early on a summer morning, or in the evening is an unforgettable experience. Unlike other aircraft, you can watch the hot air balloon being assembled before your eyes - just like a giant tent ! Then climb aboard and admire the view from the basket - no doors closed, or windows to sit behind, it's all out in the fresh air. Fantastic !

Attenborough, a suburb in the borough of Broxtowe lying 5 miles south west of Nottingham, is located between Long Eaton to the south-west and Beeston to the north west. Within the area is the extensive wetlands and waterways of the Attenborough Nature Reserve/Centre, extending over 365 hectares. The Centre is reached by the A6005 from Beeston to the north and by train to Attenborough from the centre of The City of Nottingham. This is a great place from which to enjoy a hot air balloon ride, take-off sites tend to be in rural or semi-rural areas away from residential or commercial districts.
