Merlin Balloons operates luxury Champagne balloon flights in Kent and East Sussex. We are a family run business and we take pride in good professional customer service. A hot air balloon flight is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience and we can make it a reality for you. Balloon flights are scheduled 7 days a week between April and October. Ballooning packages from £95 are suitable for any occasion, from a birthday, anniversary or a retirement gift to a wedding present. All flights have a duration of around 1 hour from various launch sites over Kent and East Sussex including Hamstreet, Headcorn Airfield, Ashford, Rye, Chapel Down Vineyards in Tenterden, and Brenzett Aeronautical Museum. Your balloon ride will be truly magical as you fly over some of the most beautiful scenery in the Garden of England, including the Weald of Kent, with the views of the South East coast. our 12-man balloon in flight over Kent

A ride in a balloon over the Kent and East Sussex countryside will guarantee an amazing day for yourself or your loved one and whether it's a special treat or a lifelong ambition, a hot air balloon flight with Merlin Balloons will be remembered forever.

We cater for either up to 12 passengers in our larger balloon and up to 6 passengers in our smaller balloon, or we can provide an exclusive VIP flight for just the 2 of you. We offer a range of Flight vouchers that are sold individually and are valid for either 12 or 18 months from the date of your choice. Flight vouchers can be booked for a specific flight date or issued open-dated, making it a unique present for someone special.

With Merlin Balloons you can charter your own hot air balloon and share your experience with friends and family. Whether you are planning a family get together or a corporate event, we can organise the right package for you. Exclusive VIP balloon flights for 2 are very popular for marriage proposals, anniversaries or as a unique wedding present.
