Appreciate the beauty of the East Midlands on your flight as you take in the views over nearby Loughborough and Peterborough. Flyers can expect to have good views over Charnwood Forest and the splendid Great Hall of Oakham Castle. A perfect setting for a balloon ride.

We chose to fly over Rutland Water for its beautiful views. Our flight had several cancellations due to poor weather, which is understandable. We were then due to fly on Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend. Conditions were murky with a little bit of...More
