Avid fans of the sport will have already bagged their reservations for Sunday’s race. There are still tickets available for the Friday practise sessions and the Saturday qualifier. Those taking children to a Formula 1 event for the first time may find the Friday and Saturday programs more manageable.

The culture of Silverstone is not to be sniffed at. Known worldwide as the British base of motorsports, the area is a national sporting treasure. Adults and children can embrace the craze with a half day adult or junior rally experience at Silverstone Rally School. Packages are available for beginners and thrill seekers.

Staying in Silverstone hotels isn’t restricted just to motorsports fans. Attractions in the area include Towcester Racecourse and Sulgrave Manor, both of which make for beautifully British days out.

Just 15 miles south of Silverstone hotels, you will find Milton Keynes’ impressive entertainment complex, Xscape. A day at Xscape is fun for all the family. The centre prides itself on its collection of Play, Shop and Eat facilities.

If you are traveling with the ladies in your life, enjoy a spot of shopping followed by a dainty dinner and a glass of wine at ASK Italian.

The more adventurous among you, and families with teens, can embrace the activity side of Xscape with a friendly bowling tournament followed by an hour at Airkix. Be blown away at this indoor skydiving center. The force within the Airkix tunnel will lift you off the ground before you are taught flying moves and positions.
