ExcursionsBritish Motor Museum (with guided tour)
The British Motor Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of historic British cars, boasting nearly 300 cars in its collection, which span the classic, vintage and veteran eras. Within the art deco building, you’ll find it is more than just a museum, as there is a comprehensive archive and picture libraey and education programmes, meaning there is something for everyone of all ages. On the guided tour you can learn fascinating stories of the cars and their personal histories.
The Silverstone Experience
The project to create an educational centre for British motor sport began in 2012 with the charitable mission of bringing to the public a museum for the exhibition and preservation of artefacts, archives and collections of educational and historic value.
The task of turning a former Second World War RAF hangar into a state-of-the-art 4000m visitor attraction has been filled with challenges. It has taken over seven years and cost in excess of £20million to create a home for the important BRDC archive, and a hub for motor sport fans and families to explore racing at Silverstone.
Take a tour through the past, present and future of British motorsport and the history of the famous racing circuit. The Silverstone Experience is packed with hands-on activities and explanations of the engineering principles that underpin racing cars and motorcycles.
Climb into a replica Grand Prix car, practice your skills as an RAF pilot, try commentating on a race and get up close to winning Formula 1 cars and racing bikes. Go deeper and discover the science behind the sport in the engaging Tech Lab. Add to this a 360-degree cinema experience and outdoor track trail, and you’ve got a day to remember!
