The Silverstone Classic is a fabulous 3 day weekend of ‘Flat Out Fun for all the Family’

Camping at the Classic is a great way to get the most out of the event. You can relax on the campsite and when you’re ready, hop on a complimentary tractor shuttle to the circuit gate… or if you feel like stretching your legs, it’s only a short walk. We’re open from Thursday morning so there’s plenty of time to set up camp before heading into the ‘World’s Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival’.

Our facilities at Silverstone Woodlands are second to none, from purpose built permanent toilets & showers to an on-site shop, as well as food outlets and “The Petrol Head” pub, all of which have one aim – to make your camping experience as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible.

With so many Classic Cars about, the campsite almost turns into a car-show of it’s own with various car clubs and enthusiasts sharing the same great facilities and lovely grass fields.
