We are all volunteers juggling work, home and school! If you need to contact us about our GP parking please email silverstoneschoolsparking@hotmail.com. We promise to reply as quickly as we can!


Please find below answers to some of the FAQ’s we normally receive:


Do you have any paved or hardstanding parking:

  • Unfortunately no, not at the moment. All our parking is on firm grass.


Can we turn up on the day and park?

  • We cannot guarantee that spaces will be available for on the day parking. To ensure you are able to park please book online.


How far from the circuit are your car parks?

  • All our carparks are a 25- and 35-minutes stroll from the circuits pedestrian access points. Pedestrian directions can be found here.

  • All walking routes are fairly flat and paved and are obviously quicker if you have bicycles and scooters!

  • Our volunteers will be able to give the quickest route to the circuit on the day.


Are there directions to your car parks?

  • We've a set of comprehensive directions from the M1 / A5 (Towcester) or M40 (Banbury) that will help you avoid the race traffic and our amazing volunteers will make sure there are ample Silverstone School Parking signs for you follow along the routes.

  • Our locations also give you the convenience of exiting in any direction; our car park volunteers will be able to offer you help and advice on departure routes, please ask them any questions you may have after you've parked.

  • All information relating to your booking (including directions) will be contained in your confirmation email which you will receive after payment. If you do not receive this email, please email silverstoneschoolsparking@hotmail.com

  • You can also find all car park directions in the ‘Parking zones’ section of our website.


Do you allow camping or staying overnight?

  • Overnight parking is not available at the request of our landlords; please respect this.

  • Camping is not permitted at any of our car parks.


Do you have any facilities available for customer use?

  • We are investigating the impact of Covid-19 on providing toilets and refreshments for general public use and at this point cannot confirm what facilities will be available in July.


Will the current prices still apply at a later date?

  • All prices are subject to change without notice.

  • All prices are exclusive of booking fees.

Your website is showing no parking availability!

  • We’re sorry if this happens (which is very rarely we hasten to add!). Silverstone is a small village and we are always working with local landowners to try and secure the maximum number of car park spaces.

  • Additional spaces will be released if they become available.

During the booking process you will be made aware of our ticket sales T&C’s, these are also listed below:

  • In the unlikely event of the Grand Prix being cancelled (no longer taking place in this calendar year) refunds or credit vouchers will be completed by the original event date.

  • All booking fees are non-refundable.

  • Tickets are non-transferable. If you do need to change your registration number, please contact us in advance as we reserve the right to refuse entry to any unknown vehicles.

We’re sorry but if anyone in your party is abusive or disruptive then your party will not be parking with us.
