In true British style, this balloon race is flying the flag for the UK with the balloons releasing at the iconic Westminster Abbey on the anniversary of the Queen's Coronation, Tuesday 2nd June.

This 100% eco-friendly race, that takes place over seven days, uses real-time weather updates to affect the course and you can follow your balloon wherever it goes via Google Maps

Balloons cost just £3 and can be personalised to your taste. Choose from a choice of colours, patterns, shapes and sizes, you can even add a special name or message.
