Camping at Woodlands for WEC 2017

Camping at WEC is a great way to get the most out of the event. You can relax on the campsite and, when you’re ready, stretch your legs for a short walk into the circuit.

Our facilities at Silverstone Woodlands are second to none, from purpose built permanent toilets & showers to “The Petrol Head” pub, all of which has one aim – to make your camping experience as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible.

With so many car fanatics about, the campsite almost turns into a social occasion with car enthusiasts sharing the same great facilities and lovely grass fields.

We’re open from 9am on Friday morning and close at midday on Monday.

  • Close to Circuit – for WEC you’ll camp in Zone A, only 250m from the circuit
  • Purpose built toilet & shower facilities – hot showers and clean toilets!
  • The Petrol Head Pub – serving all you’d expect from your on-site local including a BBQ!
  • Site security – feel safe with our team of qualified security staff patrolling the site
  • Chemical Waste Disposal Point – if you need to empty your tank before leaving us
  • Road Network – we’ve invested heavily in a sitewide network of roads
  • Drinking Water & grass pitches – sounds silly but we had to mention it!
