Offering a truly amazing experience Coombe Abbey Country Park is a truly magnificent experience. Your hot air balloon may travel over Coventry, a city made up of medieval monuments and modern landmarks including a glimpse of Millenium Place, the flight over Warickshire is probably at its finest when viewed from the air.
