Hilton Hotel to Open at Silverstone Race Track

By Paul Joseph

Motorsports fans visiting the legendary Silverstone racing circuit in the UK will soon be able to book into a brand new Hilton hotel offering stunning track-side views.

Set to open track-side in 2020, the 197-room Hilton Garden Inn Silverstone will include a rooftop terrace and offer race day hospitality experiences for all the major racing events held at the venue.

The hotel is also being designed to enhance the circuit’s offering outside of the race calendar and will provide direct access to the Silverstone Wing Conference Centre via a cross-circuit footbridge.

Patrick Fitzgibbon, a senior figure at Hilton, said: “Silverstone held the very first British Grand Prix 70 years ago and has continually hosted the event since 1987, drawing hundreds of thousands of spectators and millions of viewers around the world each year.

“Hilton embodies the venue’s racing legacy with a long-standing partnership with the McLaren Formula 1 Team. We are privileged to open a hotel in such a prominent location on the circuit and we cannot wait to begin welcoming guests to this iconic location.”

The addition of the Hilton Garden Inn Silverstone expands the Hilton brand’s presence in another famous sports-centric venue.

The company now operates more than 30 sporting venue hotels worldwide, including at Old Trafford football stadium in Manchester and The Rose Bowl cricket ground in Hampshire.
