Becketts Grandstand

3-day tickets.  Reserved seat in the Becketts Grandstand for the Sunday and a Roving Grandstand Ticket for the Friday and Saturday in any open grandstand.

Club Corner Grandstand Sections 1 & 2

3-day tickets.  Reserved seat in the Club Corner Grandstand for the Sunday and a Roving Grandstand Ticket for the Friday and Saturday in any open grandstand.

Sections 1 & 2 Are located on the exit of Club Corner and enjoy fabulous views onto the Podium.

Club Corner Grandstand Sections 3 & 4

3-day tickets.  Reserved seat in the Club Corner Grandstand for the Sunday and a Roving Grandstand Ticket for the Friday and Saturday in any open grandstand.

Enjoy the ultimate view of F1 action.  From here you have the full view over International Pits Straight, with the start/finish line, the famous pit and paddock complex that is the Silverstone Wing, and the winners podium.  Over to the right you also have great vistas of Vale and Stowe so you can capture as much action as possible.

Copse Grandstands

The Village B Grandstand overlooks the tight right-hander at Village and offers a great view of the Abbey exit. Village is one of the most eventful corners of the circuit with cars braking heavily in order to clear this slow corner where overtakes are especially frequent during lap 1. Spectators will also enjoy a clear view of Maggots and Becketts across the infield. Reserved seat in the Copse Grandstand for the Sunday and a Roving Grandstand Ticket for the Friday and Saturday in any open grandstand.

Copse corner is one of the fastest bends in Grand Prix racing.  Getting Copse right is a pre requisite to a fast lap or qualifying on pole position.  Only the bravest and most skilled of drivers can master Copse corner.  The view from Copse is extensive, watch the cars exit Woodcote and fly down the old Start / Finish straight, through Copse and towards Becketts.

General Admission

3-day tickets.  Your ticket allows roving access to selected grandstands on Friday.  General admission from viewing banks on Saturday and Sunday.

International Pits Straight Grandstand

3-day tickets.  Reserved seat in the grandstand for the Sunday and a Roving Grandstand Ticket for the Friday and Saturday in any open grandstand.

International Pits Straight with seats on the Start Grid!  Amazing views all the way up to Club Corner, see the cars coming onto the start/finish line and pits. Overlooked by the momentous Silverstone Wing, and through to the first turn of the circuit, Abbey, so that you can experience F1 at its best.

Luffield Grandstand Highly Recomended

3-day tickets.  Reserved seat in Luffield Grandstand for the Sunday and a Roving Grandstand Ticket for the Friday and Saturday in any open grandstand.

Watch the cars as they appear under the bridge on Wellington Straight and enter the Luffield Complex, it's then hard on the power as the drivers accelerate out of Luffield and through Woodcote.  The cars are in view for a prolonged period of time, allowing you to soak up all the breathtaking noise and atmosphere.

Village A Grandstand

3 Day Tickets The Village A Grandstand overlooks the tight right-hander at Village and offers a great view of the Abbey exit. Village is one of the most eventful corners of the circuit with cars braking heavily in order to clear this slow corner where overtakes are especially frequent during lap 1. Spectators will also enjoy a clear view of Maggots and Becketts across the infield.

Woodcote

Seats in Woodcote B offer a great view of the tricky Luffield right-hander where cars slow to just 65 mph as they hug the apex, as well as the blast through Woodcote. There is also a good view of the entry to the mid-speed Brooklands left-hander.

Highlights

Package highlights

The new Silverstone circuit

Silverstone is now one of the best circuits in the world.  It’s facilities are fantastic and it’s grandstands provide some of the best viewing imaginable.  Gone are the days of long queues into the circuit.  Today dedicated coach lanes usher us into giant car parks just minutes from the circuit entrance.

The futuristic pit complex and exhibition centre is an amazing sight behold.  The revised circuit layout is just as fast and challenging for the drivers, but it is the fans who are the real winners as the improved viewing make the British Grand Prix the one to watch.

Food & Drink at the circuit

From Gourmet Burgers to tasty Thai Green Curries, Silverstone is unique amongst F1 circuits in offering a huge range of food styles.  You can be assured that you will find something to excite your palate and satisfy your appetite.

When it comes to quenching your thirst your choices are equally tempting.  Traditional Teas and Luxury Coffees aplenty.  Beers, Pimms and Champagne paddocks help you celebrate your F1 weekend in style.

Air Displays

Air displays are another firm favourite amongst Silverstone fans.  In 2010 guests saw the famous Red Arrows, Typhoon display and Red Devils Parachute display teams grace the skies above Silverstone, stunning the crowds.  These remarkable feats of skill and courage had spectators in awe of our nation’s top airborne daredevils.

Marching Bands & Drivers Parade

OK its not hip and trendy but us Silverstone fans love the tradition and the spectacle.  Be British, be proud.  Get behind our drivers and cheer and wave as they pass by on the drivers parade.

Superb Grand Prix Party Atmosphere

The British Grand Prix is the biggest and best grand prix of season.  The British fans are the most knowledgeable of all F1 fans and the support they give all the drivers just has to be experienced to be believed.

Reviews

What you’ve said

My dad, Mike and myself want to thank you for doing a great job organising the tour.  It was a very special way to celebrate my dad's 80th!

Bruce Tocher

Just a quick line to thank you arranging a great weekend at the British Grand Prix.  As far as we were concerned everything worked as it was meant to and we had a great time...including of course celebrating a home win!  If you have one please do add my name to distribution lists for future events etc.  Once again, many thanks.

Paul Hopkins

Sorry we didn’t get to see you at breakfast on our last day to say goodbye.

We just wanted to say a big thank you for a fantastic weekend at Silverstone.  We have been a few times ourselves, but this weekend was most definitely the best.  What with the beautiful sunshine and the fantastic seats we had which we can only describe as ‘Pole Position’!  It was a great race and the British lads did very well considering all their setbacks with the car. I found myself winding down and having a relaxing weekend for it to be over far too quickly!  The hotel was in a beautiful location and the hospitality of the staff and the food was excellent.  It was so nice not having to eat ‘Pub Food’, and we thought the chef made some excellent choices with the menu and as a result I have half a stone to lose!

We would like to do another Grand Prix abroad, maybe not next year but the year after in 2012.  It looks like it will be Silverstone again for next year but we would really like to do Abu Dhabi which you have recommended so we are going to start working towards that as from now!  Please drop me a line when bookings for Silverstone next year are available.

Tina & Kevin Lewis

We have just returned from the British Grand Prix and would like to thank you for a wonderful time all went so smoothly .  We both enjoyed staying at the bell who were very welcoming and friendly with decent food served and room very comfortable and clean.  Linda was lovely and very good making things easy for all.  Also she went beyond her duties for a couple who couldn't make the coach which she sent back to hotel by staying behind to escort them back in a taxi which tells you a lot about somebody.

Kim and John Bean

Firstly, many thanks for a fantastic time at the British Grand Prix.

It was our first Grand Prix and we both thoroughly enjoyed it, especially as the Pirelli guys staying at The Bell also gave us a fantastic insight into the technicalities of the tyres!  The racing was really awesome, so much so that I am writing with a request!  Could you please put us on your list for next years’ British Grand Prix, staying at The Bell again with tickets in Luffield.  Obviously I will confirm my request with you when you have final costs, but I have started saving already!

Nickie and Ian Hough

I just wanted to say a big thank you for last weekend, we had a fantastic time, great seats, food at Peacock etc.  We will definitely do another one soon.

Jeff

Just wanted to say thanks again for a fantastic weekend we had a great time and met some lovely people.  Back to the cloud and cold of Aberdeen.

Nicola and Austen

Colin and I had a really wonderful weekend, although I am still exhausted!  He told me this is a birthday present he will never forget.  Many thanks once again, you made my sons weekend!

June

We did not get to thank you for a great weekend of racing.  We are probably going to sign on for the Belgium race in 16, which of the seating arrangements do you recommend?

Ken & Lynn Field

I would just like to thank you for a very enjoyable weekend at the Grand Prix.

We enjoyed it so much my son can't wait 'til next year.  Would you be kind enough to contact me when your tickets become available for next years event?

Linda Oakes

Just to say a big thank you to you and Linda and all the other people involved in making our trip to the British Grand Prix so amazing.  Everything was so well organised.  We had a fabulous time at the track and our stay at the Peacock Country Inn was the icing on the cake!  The food, the lovely views and the friendly staff made it a perfect weekend.  Thank you so much.  We will be back.  Maybe Moto GP next time!
