Taunton is the county town of Somerset and it is well known for Cricket, The Somerset County Cricket Club are based here. This is not all that Taunton has to offer though!
The county town has plenty to offer from individual boutiques to historic architecture, modern dining to unspoilt views across the Blackdown Hills and the Quantock Hills (both Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty). Taunton offers a wide range of activities, attractions and events and a hot air balloon ride around Taunton has to be the most spectacular!
With an expected boom in staycations throughout 2021 we know some of you will be heading to the South West of England. What better way to see Somerset than from the air on one of our balloon rides.
On our Somerset hot air balloon flights you can expect to see unspoilt countryside as Taunton sits in the Vale of Taunton Deane between the Quantock Hills and the Blackdown Hills. On a clear day you will be able to spot Exmoor National Park in the distance and the South and North coast of Somerset. Perhaps you will float majestically over Vivary Park and at the right time of year this could be over the Taunton Flower Show adding slightly more colour than usual. Remember to also look out for the 1,300 year old Taunton Castle or Hestercombe House and Gardens in the Parish of West Monkton.
Whichever way the wind blows our Somerset hot air balloon rides will fly you over stunning English countryside.
