In the middle of central England about 130 km northwest of London we find the small village of Silverstone. More than 2,000 people live here in this idyllic village that belongs to Northamptonshire County. Most people associate the village with the classic racetrack that shares the same name and is only 3km south.
Despite its size, there are a couple of attractions in the community. It is primarily the cultural heritage that characterizes the city and most famous is the church "St Michael's Chruch" which was built in the late 19th century. Here we also find the village's only pub called The White Horse. A really cozy gathering place for the locals where you can count on a lot of people, especially on the weekends. Sit in a typical pub environment and listen to the pleasant residents who are happy to share their experiences.
In the vicinity of the racing track have many of the well-known companies associated with just racing offices and test centers. There is also Silverstone Golf Club which offers an 18-hole course in a cozy environment.
Silverstone is only associated with a sport… Formula 1! Just south of the village is the Silverstone Circuit, which since 1950 has arranged competitions in the premier class of motorsport. Previously, there was an airfield here which was then rebuilt in stages to today become the runway we know today so well. Silverstone's GP competitions are one of the major sporting events that take place every year in England where about 350,000 people visit the event during the competition weekend.
If you want to try what it is like to drive racing, the Silverstone track offers many different types of experiences for private individuals. Everything from racing cars to sports cars such as Ferrari, Aston Martin or Carterham. Why not put yourself in a race car and learn the basics of how to drive as fast as possible?
Direct flights to London depart daily from many locations around Sweden and the Nordic countries. From London you take a train to Milton Keynes and then travel on by bus. If you are going to visit the racing track, there are usually, during the competition weekends, direct buses from London but also from Milton Keynes.
England has British pounds as its currency, but it usually works to pay with regular debit cards in most places. If you are traveling by local transport such as train or bus, it is an advantage to pre-book your tickets. Especially during competition weekends when hundreds of thousands of people flock to the Silverstone Circuit. If you have difficulty finding accommodation in Silverstone, then Milton Keynes is well located.
Through our agreements, which in many cases are the largest on the market, we offer you 100% confidence when booking your ticket. Secure deliveries, selected seats and the opportunity for Hospitality always give you value for your money.
