You don’t have to be an ardent fan of motor racing to enjoy the Silverstone Interactive Museum, it’s a terrific day out. The Museum is housed in a restored WW2 RAF hangar right next to part of the original Grand Prix circuit. If you step outside the rear of the museum you can walk the heritage track trail, and you may catch a glimpse of the action on the current circuit.
“This is not just a museum – it is a fascinating insight into all things Silverstone in an interesting way that everyone will enjoy.” Sue Sherwood, Group Organiser.
