About Bishop Auckland

Embark on an enchanting hot air balloon ride from the majestic grounds of Witton Castle Country Park, nestled in the heart of Witton-le-Wear, Bishop Auckland, County Durham. As you gently ascend into the sky, the historic Witton Castle, with its centuries-old architecture, unfolds beneath you, offering a glimpse into a bygone era.

Stunning Views

Imagine drifting serenely over the verdant landscapes of County Durham, where the panoramic views stretch far and wide. To the east, the tapestry of the landscape leads towards the vibrant city of Durham, with its iconic cathedral and castle standing proudly on the horizon—a UNESCO World Heritage Site that offers a sight to behold from the unique vantage point of a hot air balloon.

Turning your gaze to the south, the rolling hills of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty beckon, offering a mosaic of moorland, peatlands, and picturesque villages. This natural spectacle provides a tranquil backdrop that contrasts beautifully with the historical landmarks below.

As you float with the breeze, the River Wear meanders gracefully through the landscape, guiding your journey. Flying over this ribbon of water, you'll witness the harmonious blend of nature and history that defines this region.
