Your guide to buying tickets and the best places to watch the action at Silverstone for the 2021 British Grand Prix on July 16-18.
The British Grand Prix at Silverstone is one of the most established, popular and well-attended races on the Formula 1 calendar, and also one of the most expensive to attend. Silverstone has capacity for approximately 150 000 F1 fans, made up of 60 000 grandstand tickets and 90 000 General Admission tickets. Despite the high prices, the event regularly attracts a crowd close to capacity. On the eve of the 2019 British Grand Prix, a new 5-year contract was announced that will see Silverstone stay on the Formula 1 calendar until at least 2024.

General Admission tickets at the British Grand Prix
The General Admission (GA) offer at Silverstone is pretty decent, and goes some way to justifying the high ticket price. GA areas cover almost the whole circumference of the circuit and offer excellent vantage points at some of the best corners. In many cases, the GA areas are located directly in front of the grandstands. The organizers have also invested in improving the GA experience in recent years by increasing capacity, constructed raised viewing mounds and moving some perimeter fencing to get fans to get closer to the action.
Some of the best General Admission viewing areas at Silverstone include the International Pits Straight (with a view of the start/finish line), Stowe, Luffield, Beckets, Vale and Copse Corner. It’s important to secure your chosen spot in General Admission as early as possible, particularly on Saturday and Sunday as the popular areas get progressively busier over the course of the weekend. Please Note: General Admission ticket holders get roving access to the grandstands (with the exception of the T1 Enclosure, VillageB Enclosure and Club Silverstone) on Friday.
Grandstand tickets at the British Grand Prix
All the grandstands at Silverstone offer big screen viewing, whilst around half of the grandstands (the more expensive ones) are covered. For the first two days of the event, all grandstand tickets are ‘roving’, meaning you are free to check out the views from other Grandstands (with the exception of Club Silverstone). Be aware that the most popular grandstands do fill up, especially on Saturday. On Sunday, you will need to sit in your allocated seat.
