What's included

Txt me the key details of this experience

Worcester Racecourse, also known as Pitchcroft, is located on the banks of the river Severn and has been in regular use as a horse racing venue since the year 1718! Today, the fixture list covers 15 National Hunt meetings from March to September making Worcester a popular summer jumping destination. Needless to say, we cannot launch from here during race meetings, and so an alternative site is used.
As we rise above the racecourse, we are treated to wonderful views of the Cathedral, river Severn and county cricket ground, as well as the ancient and beautiful spires of the old city. Worcester is usually soon behind us, and we are now flying over spectacular countryside, with the Malvern Hills rising majestically in the distance. The agriculture in the county varies from orchards to dairy farms, from sheep to fields of wheat; it really is a most varied and traditional landscape, representing an age old English countryside.
Few can resist the attraction as one hundred feet of wispy nylon majestically rises with the dragon-like roar of the burners. As you take off you'll be more aware of the ground dropping away than of any sensation of movement or rising. The feeling of peace and tranquillity is heightened by the apparent lack of wind - because you're moving with it.
Once in the air, your balloon travels up to heights of several thousand feet, allowing you to gaze down upon villages, towns and the countryside.
The supremely steady balloon basket provides an excellent vantage point for aerial photography. This un-missable opportunity to record your trip is heightened by the ability of the pilot to turn the balloon using the 'rotation vents' - thus providing you with a truly panoramic view as you float through the air.
You'll also have a good chance of spotting wildlife, particularly on morning flights.
We round off every balloon flight with a champagne toast and a commemorative flight certificate presentation, making the occasion even more memorable.
