Hockenheim is 508 miles from London and 732 miles from Manchester. If you use the Channel tunnel the approximate journey time from London is 8 1/2 hours. Our recommended route is through France using the E15 and E17 to Reims and the then take the E50 across to Germany.
There are a number of airlines flying to Frankfurt, the largest town nearest to the Hockenheim circuit. When we checked flights the cheapest return was with British Airways for £166 (6th July) flying from London Heathrow Terminal 5.
