Virgin Balloon Flights

Virgin Balloon Flights


An unforgettable hot air balloon ride over Leeds offers a breath-taking view of this wonderful city as you drift up, up and away.

Admire the city skyline before the wind takes you out into the countryside, perhaps to the south with views of the River Air and the Aire and Calder Navigation canal.

Or you may fly east over woods and farmland, with views over Castleford and, on a very clear day, even as far as the North Sea and the River Humber.

Temple Newsam Country Park itself is a stunning launch site, with the magnificent Tudor-Jacobean mansion dominating the site, surrounded by beautiful gardens and parkland, many of the features original to when they were first designed, and the famous rhododendron walk.

Virgin Balloon Flights is the only company to offer hot air balloon rides over Leeds and, with more than 100 launch sites, is the only national passenger hot air balloon company in the UK.

Fly from just £107 per person with our north east regional weekday morning flight voucher and experience the skies of West Yorkshire like never before.

If you’re looking for things to do in Leeds, put a hot air balloon ride with Virgin right at the top of your list.
