Bailey Balloons offer Champagne Hot Air Balloon Flights and have an excellent reputation. They have launch sites in Bristol, Bath & South Wales with other launch sites on request- and they can come to you! Balloon rides are available at short notice and as gift vouchers. Clive Bailey, Director and Chief Pilot has just received an award for ballooning from HRH Duke of Windsor. The whole experience lasts 3-4 hours with helping to set up the balloon if you wish, a pilot's briefing and flying for about an hour with chilled champagne on landing and a flight certificate to take home with you. In-flight photos are available.Bailey Balloons is a well established family run company. They also do a lot of film work with the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 to name but a few. Clive Bailey flew Ant & Dec for the opening sequence to Britain's Got Talent and Jamie Oliver as well as for the BBC One Show.

Clive showed from the outset that he was not only an experienced pilot, but he put us totally at ease and commanded a friendly and entertaining staff! We felt totally relaxed from the beginning and we were able to enjoy a magical journey ending in a civilized glass of bubbly. A wonderful 60th birthday present; thank you! We would highly... More

We had a really great trip with Bailey Balloons. This was my 2nd time flying with them and my wife’s first and we both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Right from the start everyone was involved with the preparations for the flight and again afterwards when it came to the packing away after landing. The whole Bailey team were great... More

I bought a flight for my partners 50th and he's hard to please so you never know! But it was fantastic. The people were really friendly, the pilot was friendly, knowledgable and very competent and I can't recommend them enough. The experience was stunning and I'd love to do it again sometime. If you have the chance, do it!

All of the team were lovely & were great getting everybody involved with all aspects of preparing the balloon, the flight & packing it away on landing. A glass of champagne was... More

Had a great time on this trip and would completely recommend this to anyone who has ever wanted to do it! The pilot was very experienced and the rest of the staff were lovely. Well worth the early morning start. Cannot say enough about how worthwhile this is!!

The crew and pilot were extremely professional, friendly and highly knowledgeable and provided an outstanding customer service which made the flight even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend a balloon flight with this company and would... More

We have been trying for two years to book a trip which was a present. We have now had to pay an extra £80.00 to include other times of day to fly. It had been a nightmare to arrange & is always postponed!

We are sorry to hear that you have not yet had a successful flight with us. The majority of our passengers are able to book on to a flight before the voucher expires. Hot air ballooning is a very weather dependent activity and we always put safety first. Therefore, if the weather is not good for ballooning we let our... More

I was purchased a balloon flight as a Christmas present - how amazing and such a surprise. After completing details such as height/weight/age etc, I was sent a rather large set of T's & C's - always a bit of an alarm bell moment. After the first flight was cancelled due to a brisk wind, I re-booked and was supposed... More

We are sorry to hear that you were unable to fly with us due to being unwell. Had you contacted us before the arranged flight meeting time instead of leaving it to us to call you when you didn’t turn up, we would have allocated your spaces to other passengers. The office was open on Saturday and Sunday and we... More

The staff were absolutely brilliant at Bailey balloons, they were very friendly and extremely helpful. Not only do they provide amazing experiences for everyone they even went out of their way to change my flat tyre when I was stuck on the side of the road. Thank you very much to the staff at Bailey balloons !!
