History at every turn

Every corner and straight at Silverstone has a name – but where did Copse, Stowe and Wellington come from? In the opening part of The Silverstone Experience you’ll learn all the names and the history behind them, and find out how Silverstone became the home of British motorsport.

Begin at the medieval abbey, before winding through the grounds of an 18th century country estate to arrive at a Second World War airfield. In this section you will find out what links Silverstone to Lancelot 'Capability' Brown, the famous 18th century landscape architect.
