Great weather, Derbyshire/Peak District, Special thanks to Andrew Kaye, our Pilot with Tina. Richard and Dave, our crew. Totally recommend this once in a lifetime experience with Wickers World. A great reward with my team mates, and with family and friends.

My husband got me our balloon flight voucher for my 30th birthday. We were 3rd time lucky with our flight, we flew from Tissigton and did a sunrise flight. The whole experience was just fantastic and I cannot recommend enough.

I'm planning on booking an early morning flight in early October from Derbyshire. Is it more likely to be cancelled at this time of year and/or location? Thanks!

There are 3 sites in Derbyshire so wind direction is less of a problem. Weather is the main issue, they can't fly in poor visibility such as rain or fog. Goodness knows what the weather will be like in Oct this year - a good... More

We have tried booking 10 times in all seasons and are still yet to go up. Has anyone actually flown from the Derbyshire venues? We are looking to book from Shugborough as know of a few occasions balloon flights have actually taken off from there from friends/family when discussing our bookings which used to be mildly amusing but is beyond a joke now! I appreciate every cancellation has been due to bad weather but we have been trying for 2 years now.
