Walkeringham, 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 !

West Bridgeford is a suburb situated to the south of the Nottingham City boundary, divided from it by the River Trent. There are many places of architectural interest relating to its recent Title as the County Town of Nottinghamshire. To the south lies the local golf course, the small town of Ruddington with its ‘Framework Knitter’s Museum’ and Rushcliffe Country Park. T o the north lies the Trent Cricket Ground with parklands and Camping grounds beyond. Nottingham Airport is about 1 mile east of West Bridgeford. Be aware that Hot Air Balloons are subject to restrictions in the areas around airports and airfields. (Not a bad idea, as the pilot has only very limited control over the direction of the balloon !) Residents of West Bridgeford may therefore have to drive a short distance away to a hot air balloon take-off point.
