It’s been a week of dramatic developments in the world of Formula One, with spectators left dumbstruck as they witnessed the unexpected win of 18-year-old Max Verstappen in the Spanish Grand Prix, after Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg of Mercedes spectacularly knocked themselves out of the race in just the first lap, making him the youngest F1 winner in history and indicating him as a future world-champion!

As excitement continues to build for the F1 season – with the notorious Monaco Grand Prix taking place in just two weeks – we’ve been checking out all that Silverstone Woodlands, the official campsite of the Silverstone track at heart of the UK’s F1 scene, has to offer. Just 150 metres away from the world famous Stowe Corner, and with track and shuttle buses running throughout the day from 7am to 7pm to the outer peripheries of the site, Silverstone Woodlands will be going all out to ensure F1 fans and their families have a wonderful experience in a relaxing environment, complete with first-class facilities and extraordinary entertainment for all the family.

Year after year, Woodlands campers are spoilt for choice when it comes to post-match entertainment. Guests can choose to chill out with a crisp pint watching F1 highlights in front of one of the many big screens set up for guests’ viewing pleasure, take the little ones for a spin the Dodgems in the fully functioning funfair, or enjoy one of the many live music shows on offer. From acoustic guitarists in on-site pub the Petrol Head to lively DJ sets in the Big Top, there really is something for everyone. And if comedy is more your bag, Silverstone Woodlands are building on the rip-roaring success of the comedy acts of previous years by scheduling two nights with a stellar line up on Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Beer enthusiasts will be able to pay a visit to the onsite craft beer village which will be showcasing the work of world famous breweries such as Brooklyn Lager and Erdinger, all just a stones’ throw away from all the mouth-watering munch, including incredible artisan street food options, as well as traditional pies and perfectly cooked burgers, and more.


F1 aficionados staying with us at Hotel Bell Tent will be able to make the very most of their weekend as we will be providing top-tier services, with a beautiful indoor bar and hospitality area, cosy night time fire pit circles, premium quality showers and toilets, a movie den, deluxe pampering areas complete with Hollywood mirrors and more. We will once again be teaming up with chef Eamon Fullalove, former head chef at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Thirteen. As well as a truly delicious buffet breakfast, encompassing cooked and continental options, guests will also be able to enjoy snacks throughout the day and then indulge their inner gastronome with a relaxed feast each evening, as diners explore a different regional cuisine each evening.

When it comes to accommodation, it’s important to make sure your choice will be comfortable and, most importantly, hassle free. From En Suite Huts and Airstream Trailers complete with private bathrooms, to lovely yurts and bell tents to suit every budget, Hotel Bell Tent has an option that works for every group, whether you’re arriving with a group of friends, the family, or looking for something special for you and your other half.
