Hot Air Balloon Rides and Balloon Flights over Dorset

Take a balloon ride from Shaftesbury or as Hardy called it in his fiction "Shaston", Dorset's famous hilltop town. Along with its many fine historical buildings, Shaftesbury has one very famous cobbled street. Gold Hill was featured in the Hovis bread advert where a young boy pushes his loaf-laden bike up the slope to the sound of Dvorak's "New World" Symphony. Taking off on hot air balloon rides from Shaftesbury you may spy ancient Wardour Castle and nearby villages such as Sturminster Newton, Motcombe and Cherry Orchard to name but a few.
