Balloon Rides over Yorkshire and Lincolnshire
Within minutes of your balloon flight take off from York if you head south you will see the Grade I listed buildings of Bishopsthorpe Palace on the edge of the River Ouse. Archbishop Walter de Grey bought the village of Thorpe St. Andrew in 1226, (this was named Bishopthorpe). He demolished the old manor house of St Andrews's to build the new Bishopthorpe palace. Although much added to since the original palace was completed in 1241 , an archbishop of York has been resident almost continuously at Bishopthorpe Palace from then to the present date, over 750 years.
