Flew from shugborough hall out towards Abbott's Bromley, with 15 friends and family. Pilot was very friendly and informative, showing us various landmarks and explaining how the balloon worked and traveled and the training needed to become a pilot. We all started off feeling nervous but within a few minutes of taking off everyone settled in and absolutely loved the... More

The flight was bought for me as a surprise present. The flight was cancelled once due to bad weather, (well it is Britain). But when it did take place, oh wow. It's not just the flight but the build up, watching them preparing the balloon then the crunch moment as you get in when the balloon is wanting to fly.... More

After being bought a flight for my 50th we were lucky to fly on our 1st selected day (weather depending flights) from Shugborough. From a cloudy start the sky cleared and we drifted slowly off the ground. Drifting above the patchwork of farms in mid Staffordshire was amazing and so peacefull. An excellent pilot gave a good commentary and points... More

Highly recommended. A great experience with friendly, professional and safety conscious staff. I was initially a bit concerned about going in winter, but having had a couple of previous trips cancelled because of the weather, decided to catch it while could. However, the November frosty day was perfect for the crystal-clear views, and the fact that taking off at sunrise... More

Had a great flight with the team over Cheshire recently. We flew on a crisp, bright day in early December. The views were magnificent. You could see for miles. Management of the flight was professional & inclusive throughout. If you thinking of booking - do it. Just be aware you will have a few attempts before you go. We booked... More

What a fantastic experience! From beginning - booking and receiving instructions - to the end - packing away the balloon. Wicker's World made this such an effortless and enjoyable event.If you are anxious about flying then don't be put off. This is so relaxing, smooth and from 'lift off', you'll forget you are floating so far off the ground. John,... More

Absolutely enjoyed the afternoon from the beginning to the end, we were met and greeted with professionalism and smiles all round, Jon the pilot made everybody feel at ease even at 2000 feet. I think we were very fortunate with the wind direction to fly over some many house and places we knew, from parents houses to the church we... More

I had been given a voucher via Red Letter Days for a hot air balloon experience which was carried out by Wickers World. From the first telephone call to the end result there was nothing but fantastic service and friendly staff. On the day, (Whitchurch site) the pilot Jon and staff were fabulous, making everyone feel at ease which made... More
