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!

This experience was given to us as a gift, and what an amazing gift it is to receive! Clive and his team were excellent. Got everybody involved with setting up the balloon. The flight itself was incredible - So surreal to see the city from directly above. We had the flight cancelled a few times due to bad weather, but... More

My partner and I have a magnificently majestic dawn flight over beautiful Monmouthshire today. The weather was picture-perfect. The flight was incredibly calm and serene. It's not a frightening or adrenaline-rush type of experience. It's peaceful and picturesque. Our pilot, Mike, and his ground team were friendly, informative and hardworking. The balloon and wicker basket are extremely robust - if... More

This flight was a Christmas gift from our dear son. What a gift! We did have a couple of flights cancelled but quite frankly, it is good to know that Baileys Balloons put safety first. I am sure they too would prefer to fly than cancel. Communication prior to the event was excellent and the post code given took us... More

This was a Christmas present from our grown up children and wow we were not disappointed. The flight had been cancelled several times due to weather conditions and Bailey Balloons couldn't have been more accommodating in rebooking around our availability, which wasn't easy working around our employment. I now know why it is important to have the correct weather, we... More
