Overview

Graveley offers a whole host of picturesque settings for a balloon ride. With many pretty cottages and houses, there is much to investigate in this small village. If you fly south your balloon basket might drift over Stevenage, and if the will of the wind carries you in a westerly direction look out for Hitchin - a perfect backdrop for a balloon ride.
