Bristol Balloon Fiesta, Bristol, England

Drifting in a hot air balloon


Fly up, up and away in a hot air balloon as you take part in one of Bristol’s most famous sporting activities. Regular flights fill the skies during flying season and every August, Bristol International Balloon Fiesta sees more than 150 balloons from across the globe gather for Europe’s largest hot air balloon meeting. Dozens of balloons drifting across the skies together is a fabulous spectacle. Book a coveted spot on one of the registered balloons, or join in the fun on the ground with fairground rides and trade stalls. The finale, when dozens of hot air balloons illuminate in time to music, is unforgettable.
