School trip at Silverstone Experience

Plan a school visit

School Groups

The Silverstone Experience offers a brilliant opportunity to deliver an exciting, engaging and inspiring trip to your pupils.

School groups can explore the 4000m2 exhibition, that will take them on an exciting journey through the past, present and future of Silverstone and British motor sport. Learn about the engineering and technology that has changed the world of motor sport in our Technology Lab before exploring part of the retired circuit and see what’s racing around the track that day.

Young people can take part in one of our STEM workshops to suit all ages and abilities that link to key stages in the national curriculum and support learning outside the classroom.

Average dwell time on site is approximately 4 hours (includes exhibition entry, space for lunch, access to our outdoor track trail and viewing area, and a curriculum workshop).
