Ballooning Over Ullswater

champagne weekday morning hot air balloon flight

Magical. Awe-inspiring. Beautiful. And simply unforgettable…

Start your Champagne weekday morning Virgin Ballooning adventure at the handsome Dalemain Estate, the perfect launch location for floating high over Ullswater and the Cumbrian countryside. Be sure to bring a camera to capture the dramatic peaks and valleys and shimmering waters that make up the quintessential Lake District views.

As the breeze wafts you on your way, be on the lookout for Pooley Bridge, which takes its name from the 16th century crossing that spans the River Eamont on the northern end of this impressive body of water. As the lake is so popular with water enthusiasts, be ready to snap some shots of boats and steamers as they traverse and play on England’s second biggest lake.

Upon completion of your morning flight, be sure to spend some time exploring the Dalemain Mansion and grounds, before heading off for some lunch and refreshments in the 18th century coaching inn, located in the nearby village of Dacre. If you’re hungry for more sights, either drive the winding roads of the Lake District to see what hidden gems you find, or perhaps head to Penrith for a visit to the castle and museum.
