Devon Balloon Rides

Devon as we know is the land of cream teas. It will bring back for many of you the memories of good old English summer holidays. You may have visited many tourist places and would have seen various land marks but this is a different experience. Devon balloon rides provide the right opportunity for you to view many beautiful landmarks from a new perspective altogether i.e. from a height of upto 5,000 feet.

A great place for having this fun loving experience is the capital of Devon, Exeter, which lies on the river Exe. On ground, the city is brimming with abundance of music, comedy, dance etc. Looking at all this from the sky is a breathtaking experience. Exeter is one of England’s oldest cities and was founded by Romans some 2000 years back. The city is the central point from where you can fly in any direction. You should take your camera along with you and should take pictures of local scenery and architecture of cathedral of city which dates back to Norman times. You will see the view of locations which are beautiful and class in themselves.

The experience of each balloon flight will be different. You must not forget binoculars, camera and camcorder to be taken along with you. All in all Devon balloon rides will be remembered for the thrill it provides.
