Copthorne, West Sussex

This page and the others listed on the left feature hot air balloon rides over West Sussex. As views of countryside and farmland can look similar across the UK each of these pages include an aerial view of part of the specific location mentioned. Locals may recognise road layouts and landmarks.

Copthorne is a small village located on the A264, north of Crawley Down and just a few miles east of Crawley in West Sussex. It is therefore also only a few miles from Gatwick International Airport – so don’t expect to see hot air balloons anywhere near their flight paths. There are, of course, many other attractions in the Copthorne area, and the possibility to drive to a suitable hot air balloon take-off site elsewhere in West Sussex, Surrey, or East Sussex.
Other villages in the immediate vicinity of Copthorne include Turner’s Hill, Worth, Pound Hill, Black Corner, Shipley Bridge, Burstow, Newchapel, Felcourt and Felbridge.

Passengers can choose the location of their flight after purchasing a voucher accepted for flights all over the UK. Prices depend on number of passengers - more passengers cost less per person.

Book a Hot Air Balloon Flight over West Sussex, or elsewhere in the UK.

Use the controls in the top-left of the image above to zoom in or out and to "move" over this part of West Sussex and view the ground as if from a hot air balloon flight in summer. Alternatively, steer with your mouse by holding down the left mouse button and moving your mouse across the scene. The buttons in the top-right of the image above enable you to switch between the aerial view (default), a road-map view, and a combination "hybrid" of the two - that is an aerial view with the road names added over the scene.
