Bailey Balloons offers Champagne balloon rides from stunning locations...

Bailey Balloons offers Champagne balloon rides from stunning locations in Bristol, Bath, South Wales, Somerset, Wiltshire, Devon & Cornwall. Flights are either early morning and early evening when the winds are most suitable for ballooning. The flight is about an hour but you will need to leave about 3-4 hours due to setting up the balloon, the flight, then packing away and return to the launch site. Bailey Balloons have run balloon flights for over 20 years and it is a family company run Jo and Clive Bailey.

Clive is a director of the Bristol Balloon Fiesta and has flown many celebrities including Ant and Dec and Jamie Oliver. He has received an award from HRH the Duke of Edinburgh at Buckingham Palace for his services to Aviation.

Clive and Jo look forward to sharing their passion for ballooning with you!

Couldn't have been a better experience. We were so lucky with the wind taking us directly over the centre of Bristol and over many recognisable landmarks which Clive was quick to point out and tell us about. We had a fun landing when we came in really fast and ended up on our backs! But it was an exhilarating rather... More

We were looking for a memorable 50th Birthday Present and after reading such fantastic reviews about Bailey Balloons we decided upon an exclusive Balloon flight on a glorious Halloween afternoon! We took off from the beautiful Victoria Park in Bath and got some great shots of Royal Crescent and greater Bristol. The majority of our party were first time flyers... More

Went to the Bristol Balloon Festival for the first time and was very impressed with it, the organisation of the whole event seemed to be very good throughout the day and night. Seeing the balloons rising up into the sky one after another and then disappearing into the distance was lovely sat on the grass with a beer in hand!... More

Had an amazing hour trip with our pilot Ian and 14 other passengers! First time flying & perfect weather. We helped prepare & pack up the balloon and landed on a farm. Drinking our post flight champagne in a farm yard added to the adventure! Would highly recommend! Excellent!

We flew as part of the mass ascent on Saturday evening at the Bristol International Balloon fiesta 2015. We were lucky with the weather and the atmosphere of the fiesta was absolutely buzzing. I would recommend booking well in advance as some of my friends tried booking in June 2015 and were not able to. If you are standing near... More

Brought my wife and our 3 young kids - youngest is 8 yrs. All enjoyed the experience. When the burners are off, the floating experience is magical. It was great when we could not find a place to land coz the wind kept changing direction - it added another 10-15 minutes to the flight time! Everyone is involved in the... More

Thanks very much to the people from Bailey Balloons. Me and my partner used Bailey Balloons on the 23rd of June and we had one of the most amazing experiences ever.
