Flotilla of Hot Air Balloons over London  (Victoria Dock) – Sunday 4, Sunday 11, Sunday 18 or Sunday 25 June – 5:00am – 8:00am

The Lord Mayor’s personal hot air balloon, accompanied by up to 50 others is set to stage an early morning lift-off from London City Airport. The lift off will be early in the morning, on one of four June Sunday mornings – if weather permits. You won’t see much from City Airport itself as the buildings are in the way, so the best views will probably be from the other side of the docks, either around Royal Albert or a bit further to the east at Cyprus DLR stations.
