York Balloon Walk
Join a Balloon Walk and be part of a community taking on events all around the country for one common goal: beating blood cancer.
The three mile route will follow the River Ouse from Clifton Ings Meadows along into the centre of York. We will follow the tree-lined riverside path along the Ouse's west bank, with picturesque views of the city and York Minster ahead. Crossing the river at Lendal Bridge we will take in the museum gardens, surrounded by the vast botanical collection and the medieval ruins of St. Mary’s Abbey, before returning along the river to Clifton Ings.
The majority of the route is along flat-paved footpaths but some parts are over grassed areas and footpaths so may not be suitable for pushchairs and wheelchairs.
Please wear appropriate and comfortable footwear and dress for the weather.
Entry fees for the Balloon Walk
Entry is just £15 for adults and £5 for children and we welcome walkers of all ages and abilities. Families of four can enter for £35. The price includes light refreshments.
