Here's a gorgeous timelapse video of hot air balloons taking off, as part of the Lord Mayor's Balloon Regatta.

The Lord Mayor's Hot Air Balloon Regatta has been the aerial extension of the historic Lord Mayor’s Show since 2015.

Each year 50 hot air balloons take flight across central London, raising awareness and funds for the Lord Mayor's Appeal.

In 2016, the Regatta raised £46,750 for charitable causes.

The 2017 Regatta is planned for 4, 11, 18,  or 25 June. Because ballooning is very weather dependent, the Regatta is on standby for each of those June Sunday mornings and will take place on the first date the weather is suitable.

Keep your eyes to the skies.
