Hot Air Balloon Rides In Sussex

Passionate about Ballooning

Taking to the air with Go Ballooning, is a truly magical experience. Our pilots are not only passionate about ballooning but the area in which they fly. They will be happy to give you a tour from the sky as you pass by well known landmarks and spectacular scenery.

We cannot determine our flight path as this is defined by the weather conditions on the day but read on and discover some of the highlights for this area.


Combines coast and countryside for a varied ballooning experience, from the beautiful South Downs to the coastline of Brighton and Hove. Our hot air balloon rides take flight from Brighton, Crawley and Billingshurst.

Taking flight from Brighton you will take in the sites of this fabulous seaside resort, including the Brighton Pier and The Royal Pavilion. You may fly over one of the highest points on the South Downs Ditchling Beacon hill, giving you panoramic views right along the coastline of Brighton.

From Crawley, we take off from the grounds of Handcross Park School just south of Crawley to give you a great view of the contrast between suburbia and countryside. Look out for the beautiful national trust sites of Nymans and High Beeches Gardens. You may even fly over Wakehurst Place – home to 80 acres of country estate, Elizabethan mansion and ornamental gardens.
