About Carlisle

Embark on a magical journey above Carlisle from the iconic launch site of Carlisle Racecourse on Durdar Road, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA2 4TS. 

Imagine the thrill of ascending into the skies from this historic venue, known for its vibrant racing history, now serving as your gateway to an aerial adventure. As your hot air balloon gently rises, the panorama of Carlisle unfolds beneath you, revealing a tapestry of heritage and natural beauty.

Breathtaking Views 

From this unique vantage point, gaze upon the majestic Carlisle Cathedral, a beacon of the city's rich past, its stunning architecture becoming a miniature masterpiece from the skies. Drift leisurely over the imposing Carlisle Castle, a sentinel standing guard over the city for over nine centuries, its storied walls whispering tales of border conflicts and royal visitors.

As the balloon glides further, the picturesque Eden River meanders below, a silver ribbon winding through the landscape, guiding your eyes towards the tranquil beauty of Rickerby Park and the Eden Valley beyond. On a clear day, the distant fells of the Lake District paint a breathtaking backdrop, with peaks like Skiddaw and Helvellyn etching the horizon, inviting dreams of further explorations.

Each flight from Carlisle Racecourse offers a unique adventure, as the winds chart a course of discovery. Whether floating towards the Solway Firth, where the waters meet the sky in a serene embrace, or over the patchwork fields and quaint villages of Cumbria, every moment in the air is a celebration of freedom and wonder.
