So the wife divulged my crimbo pressie is a weekend pass for the 2020 F1 at Silverstone! Going with the bro-in-law, son and nephew.

Need to sort accommodation; any recommendations? Not sure if we want the festival atmosphere (Woodlands camping?) or whether to let the boys unwind at a Prem Inn 10 miles out.

  • To note, my son has Aspergers which is manageable on the daily but 72h of noise could push him too far to be an enjoyable event.

Are there quiet areas in the camping zones? Is it carnage from dawn til dusk and beyond?

Ta muchly,
Mac

I camped at Silverstone Farm campsite in the Village last year, see website here They do decent food and have a bar and some low key entertainment, but it is pretty peaceful. It's further to walk to the circuit, but they do run a shuttle bus and if you are going north after the GP it is a good place to have your vehicle parked for a quick getaway. There seem to be a number of other campsites in the surrounding area that I imagine are quieter than the official campsite.

Woodlands has a family camping area away from the hustle and bustle of the main camping/entertainment, however you can attend both if you please but then have the more peaceful camping experience.

be the same for us this year. ive looked at the pros and cons of camping/ hotel

from what I can tell, woodlands is a really good site to camp at, you can either have the atmousphere or the quieter family camping.

weve decided to camp in the end...mainly because once your in, it makes the weekend easier...theres no need to queue to get your car in, then pay £75 for the privilege, you can get up early and get in the queue at the gate...

….all in all camping is just easier....aslong as you can put up with the potential rain/ discomfort

We camped with a firm called CampingF1 a couple of years ago - they ran a quiet section, but most of the site was peaceful from Thurs->Sat afternoon until the chavs with generators turned up.

Our office is located at this farm, it always looks like a nice place to camp if you don't want it too noisy. It is a reasonable walk to the circuit, being at the far end of the village.
