2019 Lord Mayor’s Balloon Regatta
Every year, if weather conditions permit and you get up very early in the morning, there is one day when you can see the magical sight of hot air balloons drifting over London. The Lord Mayor’s Balloon Regatta is a charity fundraiser for the Lord Mayor of the City of London’s nominated charities (not to be confused with the Mayor of London).
In recent years, take off has been from Battersea Park some time after 05:00 followed by a flight drifting East with the prevailing winds.
