With one of the few truly rural locations on the F1 calendar, accommodation close to Silverstone gets booked up extremely quickly in advance of the British Grand Prix. Accommodation in the nearest towns of Towcester and Buckingham fills up quickly, though there is more on offer in the larger nearby centers of Northampton and Milton Keynes. Some fans even stay in London or Birmingham, where you’ll find more options and better value, but with the drawback of a longer commute to and from the circuit.
British Grand Prix Camping
Camping with your fellow fans next to the track is one of the most immersive and fun ways to enjoy a weekend at the British Grand Prix. The camping options at Silverstone are excellent these days, resembling more of a music festival pop up country pubs, late-night discos and food trucks aplenty. You can opt for a smart pre-erected tent or mobile home, or a simple pitch where you bring your own kit.
- Silverstone Woodlands is the closest campground to the track. You can choose from “family” or “lively”zones, both of which have very good toilet and bathroom facilities plus places to buy food and drink. Full weekend access (from Wednesday!) to the Woodlands campsite for the 2018 British Grand Prix is priced at £85 for adults and £25 for children. You’ll need to bring your own tent. It costs extra if you want to bring your vehicle or a motor home. Pre-erected tents are available here from Pillow, or you can ‘glamp’ with Hotel Bell Tent.
- Whittlebury Park is another good campground near Silverstone that’s home to the F1 Racing Fan Village with events, special appearances and giveaways.
