8km north of the track is Towcester, famed for its traditional pubs and fare. If retail therapy is your tonic, take a trip to Bicester Village, situated 15 miles from Silverstone and home to more than 130 shopping outlets.
The Navigation Pub in Towcester is home to some proper ‘pub grub’, and a perfect spot to enjoy a summer’s evening with the locals after a long day at the track. Located in the Midlands of England, London, like many of the country’s major cities, is just over an hour and a half drive from the race track, and the perfect excuse to extend your stay. One of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, the list of things to do is endless. From Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey, London is a must-see.
