Unfortunately, Google has not updated their satellite view of Silverstone since the new arena layout has been introduced a couple of years ago. The surrounding infrastructure is very much the same, except the new infield and pit complex is missing.
Directions to Silverstone by road
Getting to Silverstone is relatively easy thanks to two main roads (M1 and M40) that take you directly to the circuit.
M1 road users will need to come off at junction 15a and follows the signs for the A43 which should say to ‘Oxford’. From here the drive is about 10 minutes (without traffic) and you literally just have to go straight over the two roundabouts, then follow the brown ‘Silverstone’ tourist signs.
M40 road users will need to exit the motorway at junction 10 and again, follow the signs that allow you to join the A43. Keep going straight until you start to see brown ‘Silverstone’ signs which will direct you to the main gate of the circuit. Easy!

Alternative routes into Silverstone by road
If you want to ditch the A43 early and take to the country lanes, there is another way into Silverstone that may be of interest. When you get to the McDonalds roundabout on the A43, take the 3rd exit onto Mill Lane as opposed to carrying on using the dual carriageay. Less than 2 miles later, turn left onto Church Street. This will take you into Silverstone village and away from the other traffic! This route is great going to or from the race.
This may look like a long diversion but on race day it can take a number of hours to get down this final section of the A43.
