The Silverstone Experience

An exciting visitor attraction exploring Silverstone, the home of British motor racing.

A bit about us

The Silverstone Experience is a family friendly visitor attraction (opened in spring 2019) which takes guests on an exciting 3 hour journey through the past, present and future of Silverstone and British Motor Racing.

Fascinating stories of human endeavour, great sporting rivalries and engineering innovation are told using state of the art interactive displays and iconic imagery which appeals to all age groups. 

At the end of the visit, experience the thrill of speeding around Silverstone alongside your racing heroes in an immersive show ‘The ultimate lap of Silverstone’ with commentary by Murray Walker. 

The Silverstone Experience offers exclusive group rates, a free place for the group leader and free coach parking.  

Coronavirus update  -

We will reopen on 20 July, giving motorsport fans the chance to get their racing fix after months of lockdown. Visitors will be able to get close to cars and bikes from seven decades of motorsport history and experience the Ultimate Lap – an immersive cinema show. 

The museum team has worked hard during lockdown to prepare for a safe and fun experience for all visitors and has achieved the Visit England consumer mark ‘We’re Good to Go’. Built in a restored WW2 RAF hangar, The Silverstone Experience is a huge indoor space allowing for easy social distancing and timed entry tickets will be limited each day. 

Visitors will be encouraged to use stylus pens to operate touchscreen interactives, and hand sanitiser stations have been set up around the exhibition. Located in rural Northamptonshire with ample free parking, the café will be open for takeaway food and there is also outdoor seating.
