You're unlikely to get a better perspective of Brunel's Clifton Suspension Bridge than when taking off from neighbouring Ashton Court Mansion and floating gently away to reveal a panoramic view of the 702ft bridge, standing 245ft above the high water mark and spanning the Avon Gorge.

Fly from 'Your Own Back Garden'

Our larger balloons do need quite a lot of firm and accessible space to lay out, inflate and take off from, so usually have to fly from one of our standard launching sites shown on this page. However, if you have an Exclusive Flight Voucher for a smaller private balloon flight you may be able to suggest your own launch site (subject to reasonable access, an inspection for suitability and landowner consent).
