Hereford Racecourse is delighted to be partnering with Virgin Balloons and Lindsay Muir, the world’s most successful female competition pilot, to offer you breathtaking hot air balloon rides launching from Hereford Racecourse. Enjoy seeing some of the county’s finest views from above, as you fly tranquilly up up and away over the finest countryside Herefordshire has to offer.
You will help with preparation of the balloon for flight before climbing aboard for the experience of a lifetime and enjoying a magical mystery tour in the sky as the balloon flies with the wind and cannot be steered. Post flight, enjoy a celebratory glass of Champagne with the crew before returning to Hereford Racecourse in a minibus. Virtually anyone can fly in a balloon (old or young) but you do need to be able to climb in and out of the basket and be able to walk a short distance across a field. Children need to be tall enough to see over the side of the basket (about 4’6″ / 1.35m).
