Enjoy a unique view of one of the oldest living landscapes in the country.

Rise above the redwoods...

Whether you take off with a crisp early morning sunrise, or linger in the soft light of a long summer's evening, a hot air balloon ride from Westonbirt Arboretum presents you with a rich tapestry of colour and some of the most spectacular flying scenery in the region.

This 600 acres of Grade1 listed landscape contains more than 18,000 trees, some of which are the oldest, tallest and rarest in the country. You can skim over the tops of the Giant Redwoods, which reach up to 150 ft. above the ground and enjoy the spectacle created by the National Collection of Japanese Maples, continually being expanded to include many more of the 500 or so cultivated forms of this beautiful and very diverse species.

Look out for any one of the trees that are the tallest, or "fattest" of their kind in the UK, all flourishing at Westonbirt. You may just need your tree spotting book!
