RACE WEEKEND TRAVEL & PARKING
Getting to Silverstone Circuit
Getting to Silverstone Circuit
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 is only available to valid circuit entry ticket-holders and vehicles are not permitted to stay in parking areas overnight.
Park and Ride allows you to park at a designated car park off the M1 (Junction 15a) or the M40 (Junction 10 and 11) and take the shuttle bus to the circuit.
Disabled car parks are available but require an alternative parking pass that must be reserved in advance. If you require disabled parking, the best grandstands to consider are Luffield, Abbey or Becketts, as these are closest to the disabled parking areas.
Parking passes for the independently run Whittlebury car park are located near Copse and Becketts and may be preferable for some customers. This can be booked below.
Megabus Grand Prix coach services will be running from a number of pick-up points round the UK to Silverstone.
Generally, coaches aim to arrive at Silverstone for 10:00am or earlier. Return coaches depart from the circuit at 4:30pm or 5:00pm depending on the day.
A taxi drop-off/pick-up point is located in car park 25 behind the Silverstone UTC. Please be aware that taxis will need to follow a very specific route, entering Silverstone Village from the north, to avoid getting caught in the A43 one-way system and being forced into the circuit parking - check your driver understands the route in advance.
Alternatively, taxis can drive 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.
We recommend booking return journeys in advance to avoid long waits on the day.
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.
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. An enhanced shuttle service will also be available at an additional fee. This will offer passengers a shuttle bus running inside the track to all hospitality areas.
Pricing will be available for this shortly.
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.
