RACE WEEKEND TRAVEL & PARKING
Getting to Silverstone Circuit
Getting to Silverstone Circuit
Parking passes or Park and Ride must be booked in advance, to avoid a fixed penalty parking fine.
Official circuit parking is located on the Luffield and Abbey side of the circuit. Motorbikes park free at the circuit over the entire weekend and do not need parking passes. Parking passes for the independently run Whittlebury car park will be available to purchase shortly, this car parking is located near Copse and Becketts and may be preferable for some customers.
Park and Ride allows you to park at a designated car park off the M1 (Junction 15a) or the M40 (Junction 11) and take the shuttle bus to the circuit. Please note: Park and Ride has a charge per vehicle parking pass (the shuttle bus is free). Please select the number of vehicle parking passes required (not the number of people) and a shuttle bus pass will automatically be provided for each entry ticket you have. The last Park and Ride buses are expected depart to the circuit around 10.30am each day.
Parking is only available to valid circuit entry ticket-holders and vehicles are not permitted to stay in parking areas overnight. Please contact us for disabled parking.
bookF1.com is offering Megabus Grand Prix coach services running from a number of pick-up points to Silverstone.
Generally, coaches aim to arrive at Silverstone for 10:00. The only exception to this are the 6:30am and 7:00am departures from London Victoria, which will arrive at 8:30am and 9:00am respectively. Return coaches depart from the circuit at 16:30
Taxis can go into the circuit but because the A43 road is redirected as a one-way, you will need to book the taxi for the full day and buy car parking. Alternatively, you can get dropped off in Silverstone village and walk to the circuit (approximately 15 minutes), but make sure your taxi driver knows the route to avoid getting stuck in the one-way system.
Public train services run to Northampton and Milton Keynes train stations. From both stations, Stagecoach are operating shuttle buses to the circuit each day. These bus services will run at regular intervals and will be payable on the day.
On Sunday only, Virgin Trains will be operating combined F1 train and shuttle services from London Euston to Silverstone Circuit. Trains will depart from London Euston and arrive in Milton Keynes Central approximately 45 minutes later, where there will be buses to take you to Silverstone. The shuttle service between Milton Keynes Central and Silverstone takes approximately 30 minutes (subject to traffic) and drops-off at Car Park 49 located near the main entrance.
Tickets include a return train and shuttle bus service and must be purchased in advance. Train times are as follows (subject to change by Virgin Trains):
Your return journey can be made on any Virgin train service travelling from MK Central to London Euston. Return shuttle buses from Silverstone also depart from Car Park 49 and will run regularly from 4:15pm until 6:00pm.
Helicopter transfers are a great way to enter the circuit and avoid the traffic. Due to air-traffic limitations, only twin engine helicopters are permitted to land at the Silverstone Heliport over race weekend. Chartered twin engine helicopters are available from a variety of locations across the UK. Please contact us for more information on this.
As an alternative, single engine Helicopter transfers will be available as a per person shuttle service from Upper Aynho Ground to Turweston Aerodrome. From here you will be transferred to a chauffeur driven 4x4 vehicle which will run via a cross-country off road route from the airfield to Silverstone Circuit. Flights will be operating from 8:00am until 12:00pm, and return flights will be from 3:00pm until 5:45pm. Breakfast is included and will be served prior to your flight to Turweston.
Prices are per person.
If you are camping or staying close to the circuit then it may be possible to walk to the circuit. Check with your accommodation provider for possible routes.
