Virgin Hot Air Balloons
Appreciate the beauty of Eastern England from high up in the sky as you travel across Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and the Suffolk coast. Not one for those with a fear of heights, perfect for those who love a challenge!

Flyers can enjoy a 3 to 4 hour experience including an invitation to help with balloon inflation, around an hour’s flight in an iconic Virgin balloon, Champagne toast after landing (or soft drink) and a presentation of flight certificate signed by your pilot and endorsed by Sir Richard Branson.

Since its launch, Virgin Balloon Flights has grown from flying around 10,000 people a year to over 30,000, making it the largest balloon rides business in the world. Virgin Balloon Flights celebrates its 20th Anniversary in 2014 by continuing the fundraising and volunteering efforts with its 'Love our Landscape' campaign.
