The Silverstone hotel room that overlooks the starting grid & podium – it costs from £84 & you can stay on F1 race days
FORMULA One fans can now wake up to a view of the circuit at the legendary Silverstone Circuit.
To celebrate the release of Drive to Survive Season 5 on Netflix, the Hilton Garden Inn Silverstone has introduced deals from £84 per room – although on race days prices go up significantly.
The hotel is the first and only track hotel in the UK.
The Hilton Garden Inn has over 190 rooms, 75 of which have direct track views and are converted into hospitality suites during the F1 British Grand Prix and British MotoGP.
The hotel is in a prime location on the Start/Finish Straight, also known as the Hamilton Straight.
This one is also right across from the team’s garage, so you can see everything behind the scenes.
All rooms have free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, drinks fridges, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and air-conditioning.
Trackside rooms and suites also have a trackside balcony or trackside view.
With a 360 degree view of the circuit and the Silverstone Heritage Track, the hotel’s rooftop bar will also leave you speechless.
Along the route, the BOX Bar & Kitchen will offer all-day dining and drinks, as well as indoor and outdoor spectator areas.
Once you’ve enjoyed all the track views at the hotel, you can visit the Silverstone Interactive Museum which is on your doorstep, with tickets starting at £22.50 for adults and £13.50 for children.
At the museum, you’ll learn about the history of F1, see how driver’s outfits and cars have evolved through different racing eras, and even race on the circuit yourself in the simulators.
If you want to hit the track yourself, Silverstone offers Car Track Days.
On this day, you can ride the circuit as many times as you like with access to an open pit lane.
Cheap stays at the Hilton Garden Inn Silverstone under £150 are available most of the year, so they’re perfect for an exciting stay any time of the year.
Race day stays are much harder to come by and are already sold out for this year.
The hospitality packages are still available; However, these start at £4,000.
For a more unique stay in the UK, rent British pubs with your friends and pour your own pint from £14 a night.
You can even rent this British party house with its own nightclub and arcade.
And if you’re willing to travel a little further, we’ve also found Maldives-style overwater villas that you can book for as little as £41 a night, but they’re much closer to the UK.
The prices were correct at the time of publication.
