There is a newly built housing estate in Silverstone Village called “Woodlands”. If you google “directions to woodlands silverstone” (or similar) you may end up at the housing estate! Please follow the directions below or, if you must, use Silverstone Circuit’s postcode (NN12 8TN) and then carefully follow the event signage for the campsite when you get to the circuit.

In this way, everyone gets the same time in the shower.

Car Parking


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.

Free WiFi

Using Wifi at Silverstone Woodlands

Take advantage of the free wifi in both the lively and family entertainment villages – upload your Silverstone selfies and make your friends jealous!

Simply select the network and enter your email address, from then on it’s free to browse. The connection in the lively zone runs from a fibre connection so it’ll be like browsing at home, but the connection in the family zone will run from a satellite so it’ll load slightly differently… it loads data in big lumps, you’ll soon get used to it!

As with all technology there can be problems, so if it isn’t working ask a member of staff to help… it might be your technology… it might be ours!

Delicious Food

As well as delicious food stalls, there’s a fine mix of artisan street-food and the firm old favourites: quality pies, bacon butties and pizza, to Mexican burritos and delicious gourmet burgers! If you’d like a little more luxury, then head over to our sit down restaurant, Frank’s Steakhouse. The famous Steakhouse is open for cooked-to-order breakfasts in the morning and dinner in the late afternoon… all served on china plates!


Complimentary Shuttle Service

Our fleet of Campsite Shuttles run throughout the Campsite to help you get about. Shuttles are either tractors pulling personnel trailers (as pictured) or our big green bus.

Typically shuttles run from Friday – Saturday 8am – 7pm and from 7am on Sunday. But please check information on-site as times may vary. In the event of heavy traffic, the campsite shuttles may stop as it’ll be quicker for people to walk. Shuttles will restart when the traffic has calmed down.
