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.

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. The flight itself was really fantastic but the professionalism, involvement and politeness of the pilot and crew was just perfect. They are truly professionals and I am not somebody... More

What can I say? This trip was special. From the emails and phone calls with admin staff to the point of saying goodbye and thank you Bailey's balloons has something special to offer. This was a gift I bought for a friend. We opted for a morning flight; yes it was hard getting up for the 6am meeting but we... More

Perfect day for an unforgettable experience. Pilot and team were informative & helpful. Flight lasted one and a quarter hours, and nice touch with champagne at end of flight. Would definitely recommend to anyone thinking of booking a flight.

The take off was so smooth and the flight itself was spectacular, the views over Bath were incredible and Clives knowledge about the landmarks we were seeing and ballooning in general was really interesting. Flying over the beautiful surrounding countryside was fabulous and... More

I love hot air balloons and was delighted to be given a voucher for my birthday. The company are excellent and the flight itself was just spectacular. The pilot and crew were brilliant - very friendly and jovial and also clearly very capable, as the take off was a little challenging in slightly gusty winds, but we felt completely at... More

A 'special' birthday present from my brothers we flew with Bailey Balloons over Bath and it was just fantastic. The crew were friendly, knowledgeable and chatty. We got involved in the before and after flight chores - earning our glass of bubbly at the end. The safety issues were well managed and explained - we felt totally secure. The time... More

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
