Take a hot air balloon flight  and soar over the tips of the treetops, placing a breathtaking spectacle at your feet

With flights scheduled throughout the year you can take in the arboretum from on high in every season. Fly with us in the spring and see a carpet of pink and purple Rhododendrons, Magnolias and Azaleas. Take a flight in the summer months on an evening flight and enjoy the tranquillity of the flight as you get to see the Arboretum in all it's glory from high above. See Westonbirt explode in a riot of autumn colour when you take off on a morning flight towards the end of our flying season.

Please note: there is restricted availability of flights
