Southwell, 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 !

Southwell is a small town on the River Greet, to the west of Newark-on-Trent and surrounded by the village of Normanton to the north, Halam to the west Parkhill and Easthorpe the south and Upton to the east. It is located close to the junction of the B6385 and A612, has a racetrack to the south and an incredibly well restored Workhouse to the north. Between Upton and the racecourse lies a caravan site and railway station. Hilly areas to the north and west, source many waterways which eventually join the River Trent to the south. So much to see !
