Berkshire Balloon Flights

Float over the Thames on our Balloon flights in Berkshire from launch sites in Reading and Padworth Village.

Balloon Flight Reading

Adventure Balloons has been flying from Reading since 1990 and is the only balloon company flying from Reading's Parks. We have launch sites at Prospect Park and Kings Meadow in Reading and for some wind directions we use an alternative site at Padworth Village west of Reading on the A4.

During the balloon ride you may see large country houses along the Thames such as Mapledurham and Hardwick House; small towns such as Henley on Thames, Wokingham, Streatley and Goring; boats or rowers on the Thames.
Close to the town centre are The Hexagon Centre and of course the new Oracle shopping centre. Slightly further out from the centre are the Madjeski Football Stadium, The Courage Brewery, and of course the fields alongside the Thames that are the venue for The Reading Festival. Close to the M4 is Readings most recent landmark, the wind turbine at Green Park.

Cross the motorway and The Duke of Wellington's house at Stratfield Saye may also glide underneath your basket.

Please be aware that our balloon rides from Berkshire have to keep clear of Heathrow Airspace (which starts a few miles east of Reading) and the restricted airspace at Aldermaston and Burghfield. To provide you with a safe and enjoyable flight, the site chosen will depend on the wind direction and speed on the day. While our Berkshire sites will be our first choice, for some wind directions to get a better flight we may need to use our back up balloon launch site at Henley on Thames and then fly back towards the Reading area. The exact site used on the day will be notified on our weatherline message. Please do not telephone our office number in advance for this information as we will not know.
