The British Formula One Grand Prix is the motor racing event of the year. Silverstone holds a special place in every F1 fan’s heart and, with achievable speeds of more than 180mph, it is one of the world’d fastest circuits. The festival atmosphere that takes over the race track on both practice days and race days is contagious, with teams and spectators alike enjoying what to many is the Grand Prix of the season.
UPDATE: 15 November 2012 – bookings for our British Grand Prix Packages 2013 have now opened.
The occasion creates just as much drama as the events that maybe London Theatre Breaks is usually associated with so we thought it worth including.
Just as the 2012 draws to a close, here at Theatre Breaks we are already thinking about next year.
The British Grand Prix is the ninth race in the 20-race season and ctakes place over the weekend of the 28 – 30 June 2013. We are lucky enough to have tickets for the second and third days – which include the 3rd practice session, qualifying and race day itself. But this is just the F1 action. What the TV doesn’t give you is the head-spinning array of other motor racing action and off-track entertainment available throughout the weekend.
London is too far away to select a hotel there for your Grand Prix base, so the hotel we are offering as the accommodation element of our British Grand Prix Packages is the Novotel Birmingham Airport.
Visitors to this hotel will receive a warm welcome and find themselves in clean, comfortable and contemporary surroundings. The rooms are stylish and come equipped with en-suite bathroom, TV, mini-bar and refreshments tray.
Elements Restauran provides elegant yet informal dinning with an excellent la carte menu. There is 24 hour room service and free use of the onsite gym. Please note that parking for your Maclaren or Ferrari (and any other car you might be driving!) is provided by the NCP and charges do apply, although the hotel is right next to the airport so you could fly or get the train! However you decide to get there, it will provide everything you need for your British Grand Prix Package.
The price for the full package is £419 per person based on 2 people sharing a twin or double room and includes service and VAT at 20%.
The accommodation included is for the nights preceding each days action allowing guests to get home on the Sunday night rather than having to stay over until the Monday morning.
Optional extras include discounts of up to 40% on rail travel from any UK Mainline station. Just select your departure point and add the train ticket when you come to confirm your package.
