How far is it to the circuit from the Campsite?

Our north gate is about 250m from the circuit and our east gate even closer, so you’re never far. The campsite is large so we offer a complimentary shuttle service around the site during major events.

Do you have accessible camping?

Yes we do have accessible camping. When booking your tickets with Silverstone, you are able to select a disabled camping ticket on the internet. However, for F1, you need to book disabled camping over the phone as the system is slightly different. Make sure you have your blue badge with you when you arrive at the campsite*; we’ll only give space to blue badge holders in our Disabled Camping zone. Our Disabled Camping zone is close to the circuit and has toilets & showers with ramp access. We operate a no-nonsense blue badge holder policy to make camping that little bit easier for those who really need it.
*Please note: As part of the terms and conditions under which disabled tickets are sold you must have a Blue Badge, if you are not a Blue Badge holder or you do not bring yours as proof, you will not be able to camp in the Disabled Camping zone.

Is there a reduced price for children?

Yes, children aged 0 to 15 years old qualify for a child camping ticket. We have plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained, including sports equipment to hire and a family treasure hunt. Please note, all children must be accompanied by an adult whilst staying at the campsite.

Can I see the evening entertainment if I'm not camping with you?

No. The only way to see the evening entertainment is to camp with us – we don’t let anyone else on-site. We put entertainment on for our guests only – why should we let other people enjoy the same facilities? Believe it or not, every year we refuse entry to hundreds of people asking to come and enjoy our evening entertainment just because their friends, who were camping with us, said it was so good!

I have a 3 day event pass, does this mean I can only camp for 3 nights?

No. Your camping ticket entitles you to camp with us for any length of time during our opening times for that event. So if we open at 7am on Wednesday and close at midday Monday, you can camp for that entire length of time! Check individual event opening times before arrival.

Is your campsite secure?

We try our best to keep our site secure. We have a team of SIA approved security guards patrolling our campsite as well as all our other campsite staff. However, our campsite has a population similar to a small town for big events so theft can happen – we recommend keeping your valuables safe at all times, either by locking them in your car, or keeping them on your person.

What's Glamping?

It’s a service where you can turn up to a pre-erected luxury tent. It’s like camping, only easier and much more comfortable! Read more about Glamping by clicking here. .

Can I bring my pet onto the campsite?

No. We operate a no pet policy with the exception of guide dogs.

Can I bring my motorbike on-site?

Event dependent. We adopt a ‘no bikes on-site’ policy for most events. We have a CCTV monitored secure bike compound for all motorcycles. We don’t want anyone to have their bike stolen or tampered with so drop them into our secure compound on arrival & we’ll look after them until you leave. This rule applies to all motorcycles and quad bikes alike.

Can I bring my car on-site?

Generally, yes. We aim to have cars parked next to pitches. In the event of bad weather, or for different reasons, you may have to park your car away from your pitch. If this is the case we will try and make the distance between your car and your pitch as close as possible (within reason). Please keep an eye on our facebook page and website for updated information.

Can I leave the site when I want?

Vehicle movements are restricted from arrival to until after the race on Sunday, except in case of emergency. If you need to move your vehicle in an emergency you must contact the nearest steward, who will arrange for you to be escorted out of the camping area.

For those who need to pop in and out of the campsite during the course of the event, there will be a separate car park to allow you to leave and return freely in your vehicle.

Can I buy a camping ticket without a race ticket?

No. You need to buy a race ticket through the Silverstone website then either a) add camping to your cart or b) turn up at the campsite with your race-tickets and buy your camping then, although we do recommend buying early through Silverstone’s website as then you’re guaranteed to have a camping pitch – we sometimes sell out early on major events.

Can I bring my own booze on-site?

Yes, but we don’t allow glass on-site and you may have any glass bottles removed on entry.

I’m coming to a small event – what facilities can I expect?
