Carterton, Oxfordshire

Here's a new perspective on Oxfordshire. See our attractive country from the air ... gliding gracefully across the sky. A Balloon ride is a romantic way to start or end the day.

Carterton is located in South-West Oxfordshire, near to Witney and Lechlade-on-Thames. Carterton is also the location of the Brize Norton Royal Air Force base (to the east of the town of Carterton).

Due to its proximity to an airfield - and a large one at that - hot air balloons are subject to restrictions in this immediate area. We've included Carterton anyway, for completeness. Just expect to have to travel to an appropriate distance from other air traffic to enjoy a safe hot air balloon flight..

Passengers with vouchers from Experience Day companies can, in many cases, choose the location of their flight from a range of take-off locations*.

Use the controls in the top-left of the image above to zoom in or out and to "move" over this part of Oxfordshire and view the ground as if from a hot air balloon flight in summer. Alternatively, steer with your mouse by holding down the left mouse button and moving your mouse across the scene. The buttons in the top-right of the image above enable you to switch between the aerial view (default), a road-map view, and a combination "hybrid" of the two - that is an aerial view with the road names added over the scene. (This shows Carterton from a higher altitude than is likely for most pleasure hot air balloon fights, enabling a view of a larger area. To zoom-in press the "+" button on the image.
