Great ride with beautiful views
Finally managed to get this ride in after bad weather and then covid, Baileys we’re very accommodating letting us extend it. We’d travelled down from Leeds with fingers and toes crossed and luckily the weather gods smiled on us this time. On an early morning flight you should be able to get a free parking space on Weston Road a short walk from the meet point. The team were very friendly and got us involved in assembling and later putting away the balloon. The whole thing took around 4 hours with a 45 min flight. We had cracking views of Bath, Bath Uni and the countryside, the sun came out just as we rose above the Royal Crescent and the steam fair being there was another great photo opportunity. You’re at the will of the weather, we ended up halfway between Box and Bradford-u-Avon then needed to wait for farmers permission to drive into the field to collect us but we were kept busy with chatter and champagne/orange juice and then putting away the balloon. A go-pro was hoisted out to take pictures which could be purchased on a memory stick for £20. Take off and landing were very smooth, Mike, our pilot, was very chatty pointing out points of interest and answering questions.
Loved it, would definitely recommend just be prepared that the weather may mean rebooking and block out enough time for it.

Bailey Balloons hot air balloon ride from Bath
Oct 2020
What an amazing flight we had on Sunday! We flew from the centre of Bath up into the surrounding countryside. All COVID-19 precautions followed during the flight and it did not detract from the experience at all. Crew and pilots very attentive and knowledgeable too. It was amazingly serene as we floated peacefully above the city. Great views too. Absolutely fantastic!

Our beautiful green and pleasant land .. with Bailey’s Balloons
Sep 2019 • Friends
Thank you to Baileys Balloons for a wonderful hot air balloon experience over Bath.
The booking was clear and easy, the information that follows about what you need to do prior to the flight and on the day is clear.
The meeting place has ample parking and provides a great backdrop to the start of your flight.
The experience starts with the whole group assisting the pilot and crew to get the balloon ready.
After a safety briefing you are in the basket and up and away.
The flight was beautiful, peaceful and yet interesting, enhanced by the beautiful weather and clear views across Bath. We were up in the air for a whole hour, or possibly more, landing in a very friendly farmers field.
We then all help to put the balloon away. All part of the ballooning experience and we will walk rewarded handsomely with a glass of cold champagne or soft drinks.

The crew then took us back to our meeting point and in fact went way beyond and dropped a few people off on the way en route back.

Highly recommended both for the experience and the team involved.
Thank you.

Amazing, unforgettable experience
May 2019 • Couples
Flew with Bailey Balloons on a crisp Friday morning in Bath. The whole experience was incredible and the team were great fun and extremely knowledgeable.
It was really interesting to hear the pilot speak about how seriously they consider the challenges the weather can raise, which really drives home how lucky we were to get in the air.

An acceptance of you may not get up first time is required when booking but once you're up you'll understand why it was worth being vigilant.

Tough to describe how incredible the feeling is. Will 100% do it again.

Absolutely wonderful -- better than I ever imagined
Jul 2018 • Couples
The two of us had been thinking of taking a hot-air balloon ride in Bath for some time and on this visit to Bath we finally did it. It was an amazing experience -- better by far than I had imagined it would be. It was an exhilarating experience and at the same times not in the least scary -- we felt completely safe throughout the flight. Although I had read descriptions of what it is like to take a balloon flight, I was still unprepared for the feeling of complete stillness that comes from being in something that has almost zero net motion relative to the wind. There is no sensation of horizontal motion or vertical motion. It feels as though the basket is completely static in space and the ground moves down as you take off and it is the ground that is moving horizontally during the flight, not the balloon. There is nothing quite like it. I'd recommend it to anyone.

We were really happy that we chose Bailey Balloons. We were in Bath for only two weeks and so we were worried about not being able to fly during that time. (With climate change, a greater proportion of flights are cancelled due to high winds aloft than a few years back. Our first booked flight was cancelled, then our second, then our third, and we finally got to fly on fourth try on our last day in Bath.) The team at Bailey Balloons were really helpful in making sure we were re-booked as soon as a flight was cancelled. (Note: If you are visiting Bath for a short period, make sure that the office know this, so they can try to get you on a flight during your stay, and make your initial booking for a flight early during your stay so that there is enough time to allow for one or more reschedulings.)

Although all of the Bailey pilots are extremely experienced, we were particularly lucky to have Clive Bailey as our pilot for our flight. (We chose Bailey Balloons after seeing Clive fly David Attenborough over the Alps in Planet Earth II.) Obviously you can't be sure of getting a flight with Clive, but if you do, make sure you read his bio before the flight!

Perfect present
Oct 2017 • Couples
We were given this as a present and nearly forgot about it. However we did manage to get one of the last flights of the year. What a fantastic experience which is run by a fantastic family business. I highly (lol) recommend this adventure.
