Our London Balloon Flights
Join us on our unique and exclusive dawn balloon flights over London, the ultimate ballooning experience.
The ultimate hot air balloon flight experience is available exclusively with Adventure Balloons.
Rise up above the sights and sounds of London and fly away in a beautiful hot air balloon.
Discover the romance of ballooning as you re-enact the exploits of the pioneer balloonists who flew over London 200 years ago. The principles of balloon flight remain unchanged, and so too are many of the landmarks you will view from your wicker basket.
There are so many sights to see, we cannot list them all. Just scroll down the page to see some of them. You can click on all of them to enlarge them!
Our take off sites are all within a few miles of the Tower of London or the Thames.

Please be aware:
Balloon flights over London require good weather and can only be made when the forecast wind direction will enable the balloon to stay out of restricted air space and with sufficient wind speed to land clear of built up areas. Consequently London flights are more likely to be cancelled because of unsuitable weather conditions than those in the Home Counties.
Air Traffic restrictions mean that London flights are available on weekday mornings only, from late April to mid August, meeting shortly after dawn. Every flight is different and views depend entirely on the wind direction on the day. Meeting times for London flights are up to half an hour earlier than the approximate times shown in your map pack.
Flight duration will be approximately one hour but will vary depending on operational factors. After landing and recovery of the balloon by our crew, we return you to a suitable Underground or Rail station to enable an easy return to London. You should allow 4-6 hours for the whole experience from when we meet you.
Passengers on London flights can register for our STANDBY LIST both during the season and for possible extra flights after the official end in Mid August. If we see a good weather slot we will text you 24 hours ahead to give you the opportunity to book onto these.
