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.

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!

This was the most amazing experience in my life, i was a little nervous at the start but its so calming once you get up in the sky. Mike the pilot was very experienced and gave me lots of information about the flight. I also proposed toby partner and she said yes, it was a wonderful experience that will never be forgotten. I can't recommend Bailey balloons enough , thanks guys for everything.

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.
