If you’ve been sold on the idea of going to the next Formula 1 British Grand Prix, you’ll need to get yourself some tickets. But where do you start? Follow our guide on how to purchase the tickets you need, including when and where to get them from.

The first thing to consider is when to buy? Although Silverstone offers a small initial sale of tickets right after the previous years race, the general sale of tickets happens around October time. This means the official online sellers of Grand Prix tickets can start to sell their allocation of Silverstone tickets for the next GP.

Becketts and Club SilverstoneThe next thing to consider is where to buy from? British Grand Prix tickets are not cheap by any stretch of the imagination so you will want to feel confident about the company you are purchasing from. In reality, there are a handful of ultra safe and perfectly legitimate sellers of F1 tickets on the internet. They all have direct relationships with the Silverstone circuit and are authorised to sell on tickets to the GP weekend. We have built up relationships of our own with these companies over many years and are proud to show them further down this guide. Trust us – you’re money will be safe!

What British Grand Prix tickets should I buy?

This can often confuse people, particularly first timers to the British Grand Prix, or if you are buying them as a gift for a loved one (good on you!). We’ve broken down the decision into three categories below with the cheapest first.

Budget – General Admission Tickets

General admission tickets offer two advantages over any other passes. The first is budget. These are the cheapest tickets for getting into Silverstone as you only gain access to the circuit and not any of the grandstands.  This leads us to the second advantage: you’re free to roam. With a general admission ticket you are free to walk the entire outside of the track and enjoy watching from every angle. With Silverstone consisting of so many different type of corners and straights, walking the track (particularly during the Friday practice sessions) is a pleasurable experience any F1 fan would enjoy. Our tip is watching from the entry to the Maggots and Becketts corners or around the Luffield area for the longest view of the cars. Check out the videos below which were both shot from general admission fans! Awesome!

Prices (at time of writing):
£155 – Adult – Fri, Sat & Sun
£135 – Adult – Sun
£60 – Adult – Sat
£40 – Adult – Fri

Family tickets for 2 adults and 2 children on Friday and Saturday’s are also available.

Standard – Grandstand Tickets

If your budget allows for it, we highly recommend picking a grandstand to watch the British Grand Prix from. Not only do you get a reserved seat on race day (avoiding general admission fights for space!), a covered grandstand also offers the perfect protection from the wind and rain that can plague Silverstone on a nice summers afternoon.

Prices vary massively from just under £200 for an adult only Sunday seat, to £465 for a full weekend ticket in the best grandstand the circuit has to offer. To pick which one is the the best for you, read our ‘where to sit at Silverstone guide in full. We detail the best places to watch from and rank them in order of our favourites.

In a nutshell: Club Corner and the International Pit Straight are the central hive of activity of the GP weekend. Club Corner is the final turn on the circuit, with a view of the pit lane entrance and podium in front of you. The International Pit Straight is (you guessed it) opposite the new pit lane with an obvious amount of action taking place there all weekend.

There are other fantastic grandstands and corners on the other side of the circuit but we’ll let you read about those in the guide linked to above.

The final thing to say about British Grand Prix grandstand tickets is they are categorised into bands. That means once you pick a corner/grandstand to sit in, you then get to choose from a selection of prices (known as bands) which dictates how good the view is from each seat. For instance, Club Corner offers 4 different prices based on how far around the corner you are. The lowest band (highest price) has a better view of the podium and pit straight, whilst the higher bands (lower prices) sit you further round the corner with the view of the pits decreasing. This is a fairer way of pricing the tickets and literally just comes down to how much money you have to spend per ticket.

Hey Big Spender! VIP & Hospitality Tickets

If you are lucky enough that budget isn’t your highest priority then it makes sense to enjoy your British GP Formula 1 experience in one of the numerous VIP & Hospitality points around the Silverstone circuit. These range from cosy marquees with a hosted lunch and bar, all the way up to the ultimate VIP package, a British Grand Prix Paddock Club ticket.

You can spend less than a £1,000 on a hospitality ticket, or spend well over £3,000 and live like a celebrity for the day – the choice is yours. Packages are available to view from the links on this page.

OK I’ve made my mind up…
Now where do I buy the tickets?

We think the best place to go is BookF1.com – a British based company, seller of official F1 tickets:

F1 Tickets Resellers

viagogo.com, stubhub.com and seatwave.com are not primarily F1 ticket agencies but they have moved into this area in recent years and have become big players in the industry.

British Grand Prix – Ticket ‘Bands’

When it comes to choosing a grandstand to sit in at Silverstone, you will be presented with a choice of ‘bands’. ‘Bands’ effectively means ‘prices’. The more expensive you choose, the better your seat will be in that specific grandstand. The cheaper bands have a more restrictive view.

      The British Grand Prix is definitely one of the most expensive to go to Malcolm so I do understand your frustration. There’s more to it though than simply calling it a “rip off”. Silverstone has no state backing unlike many of the Asian races. And with FOM charging more and more for hosting the race, Silverstone’s hands are tied to a degree otherwise they wouldn’t make any money at all.

      The rising costs of the fee owed to FOM for hosting an F1 race is unfortunately a one way ticket upwards. There is no protection for the classic races such at Silverstone, Monza and Spa-Francorchamps – only Monaco seems to have some super status and has no worries about it’s place on the F1 calendar. It’s shame as it’s clearly disappointing so many British F1 fans but there’s no real solution.

      Hi David. I sympathise with your view, especially from the family perspective as it’s an expensive day out / weekend. In terms of the ticket prices, Silverstone’s hands are more or less tied by the powers in F1 who charge massive race hosting fees. In a world where the richest counties are queueing up to host a GP of their own, Silverstone has to pay F1 astronomical figures for the privilege of keeping it’s race, a burden it has to pass onto the fans.

      I recommend taking the family to the F1 test day the week after or perhaps a BTCC meeting which has lots of racing on the bill.

      Hi Steve, It’s really down to personal preference all the VIP locations you mention are in good spots as you’d expect for paying for VIP treatment. It’s really a matter of what you’d like to see heavy braking acceleration or overtaking at the end of the straight into Brooklands

I was going to buy him tickets for the general admission on the Saturday. He is quite into the Grand Prix and was just looking for an opinion if that would be a good day and ok type of ticket to choose as I don’t want to go to crazy on ticket prices. Thanks for any help

      Hi Kate,
      General Admission tickets for Saturday are £88 each. These tickets give you roaming access to all General Admission areas. Saturday is still a busy day as it’s qualifying so will be close to capacity based on past years. Another option is to go on Friday where General Admission tickets can be used in the majority of Grandstands accept Club Corner and Club Silverstone. Prices are £67 each and you will get to see 2 F1 practise sessions.

    Hi everyone, I want to also buy tickets for my boyfriend who is a massive F1 fan. Limited money so think it will have to be general admission tickets for Silverstone in 2016. I love the idea of the Friday- Sunday ticket as I think its worth it in terms of money. So does this mean you can roam around on the Friday with these tickets? And then Saturday and Sunday you then have to stay in one area? And is the view any good with this kind of ticket? Any help would be much appreciated 🙂 Thank you

      Simon Purnell says

      Hi Michelle, With General Admission ticket you are free to enter any of the General Admission areas from Friday to Sunday. But you will find on race day the keenest of the F1 fans will arrive very early and take up the most desired spots. You will be able enter certain Grandstands for Friday practice.

      GA is a great option. For two of you it will be great. Book a Cheap Campsite (Dadford Road is our option because its cheap and very close the circuit and has proper toilets and showers) and GA allows free roaming throughout the 3 days including Grandstand Access on Friday.
      Saturday is a busy day but by no means are you restricted, make sure you arrive around 8-9 to get your spot for Qualifying.
      Sunday (by this point you will hopefully have been round the track at LEAST once and you will now know your favourite spot for the race, our personal favourite is Woodcote because it has tiered concrete GA area which makes it easy for people to view the action) Get there early gates open at 6am be in the queue for the gate closest to your desired spot by half 5 at the latest, make sure you have a fold up chair, when the gates open grab your spot, put your chairs down and whatever else you brought, enjoy the support races and enjoy the F1.

      Its daunting, but it makes a lot of sense once you have tried it! Honestly the only thing that you should be worried about it being dedicated to getting up early and commit to finding a good spot!

    I’ve ended up buying the General Admission Friday to Sunday so my boyfriend gets to spend plenty of time there, its going to be such an amazing surprise for him, know he will love it 🙂

    The only problem is neither me or the boyfriend like camping, I so wish we did as it would make life easier.

    I’m trying to get a hotel nearby from Thursday 23rd June for the 4 nights, but obviously don’t want to pay stupid money. Its so difficult, I bought the tickets not thinking about how to get there and back each day and where we would stay. I’ll have to keep on with that search. EEK!

    Hi all,

    I have no idea about F1, but my partner loves it. It’s a big birthday next year, so I’m thinking of getting him (well, us, I suppose!) 2016 tickets. I know they’ll be expensive, and whilst I don’t want to spend a fortune, I’m prepared for it to be pricey. I’m just looking for some advice on the best options, so any ideas would be gratefully received.

    I’d like for it to be a whole weekend event, but am not sure whether I should buy tickets and accommodation separately, or buy some sort of package deal and, if so, which one I should go for. In people’s experience, are packages, including accommodation, transport to/from the venue, and some food, worth doing, or is it better to arrange the different elements yourself?

    My other question relates to watching the race itself. Are there particular places that are better to watch from than others and, if so, which one should I go for?

    Sorry, I know that’s a lot of questions, but I really have no idea what I’m doing, and don’t want to do the wrong thing. I would really like to make it a special weekend, so would be really grateful for any advice anyone has. Thank you!

    Hi, we’re booking for 2017 but not sure what grandstand we’d prefer. We looked at options last night and are considering Abbey but don’t want to be disappointed. The seats we were being offered were Block 3 only and I read reviews about no TV screens near that end of Abbey. We’d pay the price for the International pit straight if we thought it was well worth it, but I have a feeling that there could be just as good grandstands/corners that we could be in where we’d get as much action. We’d be looking for overtaking or areas where the cars might run off the track (basically some action and excitement), should we be thinking more DRS zones and possibly Village B or Luffield A? So bearing in mind we’d pay the IPS price if it was worth it, what would be the next best option (that is still available)?

      Hi Margaret, I’ve just check Abbey availability and can see Block 1 and 2 have are now sold out. I’d recommend looking at Club corner.

I have to say some of the best Grandstands are already sold out are very close to selling out so I’d recommend booking soon.

    Hi. Newbie question, but im wondering: will it be possible to buy tickets for the Friday, on the day? We have some uncertainty about my dad attending, so i’m just thinking maybe we leave it open and see on the Friday? Any comments from ‘no problem’ to ‘you must be joking’ are welcome!

      Hi Duncan, Silverstone have sold out in the past so it’s a difficult one for me to answer. Friday is the quietest days of the weekend so you maybe lucky.

    My son turns 16 a few days before the grand prix…we’re still not sure if we can afford to go. Do I risk it and buy a child ticket (U16), saving a lot of money?

    Thank you for this info, really helpful! I know nothing about F1 but my fiancée is a huge fan so want to treat him for his birthday. I don’t think I can afford the Saturday or Sunday tickets but Friday seems doable. Is it still a good day out – do you need to arrive very early? I’ve noticed that general admission tickets are now available on the formula 1 website – do you advise booking now or are cheaper tickets likely to come out in October? Thank you!

      Hi Sonia,
      Friday is a practise day only so can be a bit hit and miss on the action. Saturday includes qualifying and some support races. If you looking to book a grandstand I would recommend booking now.

    I remember late 90s or early 2000s when it was foggy the helicopters could not land so with an hour to ???? you could sit in any grandstand for £60 just had to move along if the ticket holders turned up what a great opportunity it was the one stand had no one in and was not visible in TV coverage quite crafty I used to arrive at seven ish saw great warm ups at 9 with Montoya and fizzy spinning atbecketts then full blast up the hang er straight used to be better than qualifying

    This website is very helpful. I’m buying tickets for my partner. Is it worth buying the fast track and inner track? I am thinking GA on Saturday or Sunday. As it’s our first time, I’m wondering whether it’s worth buying the Sunday as I know we’d need to grab a spot – would this mean we cant walk around?
