Visit the interactive F1 Museum behind one of the most iconic tracks in history on this fantastic day out near Northampton

Every race at Silverstone begins on the grid, and that’s no different when you start your trip around the interactive museum next to the famous track. As the lights dim, the room becomes filled with the red light of a stopwatch counting down to zero. With every second ticking away, moments of motorsport history flash before your eyes. Until finally, it's away you go!

Across the 4000m2 hangar the museum has made its home in, you’ll get the chance to discover everything from the history of Silverstone to the fascinating technology behind some of the fastest vehicles on the planet.

After making your way off the grid, you’ll get the chance to step back in time. A medieval abbey once stood here, then as the centuries passed, it was at one time the grounds of an 18th-century country estate before becoming an airfield in the Second World War.

Journey through the history of Formula 1 on one of the best things to do near London, Northampton and Oxford

As you make your way further into the museum, you’ll pass through one era after the next. Connecting to Silverstone’s past gives you an insight into just how remarkable the place is.

Learning about the heroes who fought in the Second World War; the pioneers of motorsport who were at the beginning of it all; the constant drive people showed to push boundaries – they’re stories that inspire admiration.

The museum is packed with things to do as well as learn about. In the latter part of the museum, you’ll get to test how quickly you can change a wheel and get hands-on with racing equipment.
