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!

Me and my friends had booked a flight for the Bristol Balloon Fiesta with the Bailey family. Right from the start, they were very professional in arranging our requests (for exampling flying in the AM), and very prompt in answering emails. When we met them...More

Had a great flight from Bristol last week. Great team, from the office staff through to the pilot and his team. Safe, professional, oh and champagne at the end! Fabulous.

What a great experience, thanks' Mike (our pilot) and all the team. Fantastic views very professional and a glass of champagne on landing with a few ballooning stories chucked in. Amazing.

Superb flight from Bath. Stunning views of course but wow, what a professional team Bailey Balloons are, especially our pilot Mike. He was extremely professional whilst maintaining an excellent sense of humour, which was very much appreciated! Will definitely fly with this company again.

What an experience - well worth the early start. Arriving at Ashton Court at just before 6:00am was an odd experience - the only other cars in the car park being our fellow passengers. We walked around the mansion and got our first glimpse of...More
