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!

We asked Bailey balloons to support our MX-5 Owners Club Spring event at Ashton Court, to conduct tethered Balloon taster experiences for visitors to the event. The team arrived and set up and got flying, they worked tirelessly throughout the day, with a short break. It was a spectacular backdrop to the event and provided a real highlight (no pun)... More

Would have given zero mark if it were possible because that's what we got for £275.00. If someone you love fancies a balloon trip, just give them the money and let them book on the day with a reputable company. If you buy a voucher with this company the chances are that your gift recipient will be disappointed and you... More

Suddenly you stand 3,000 feet above the ground where everything looks so small, without the slightest fear or worry thanks to the confident pilot. Everything was great. From the... More

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
