The Heritage Track Trail is open every day from 11am til 4pm*. On our brilliant outdoor Heritage Track Trail you will see and learn about the current circuit – and even walk on parts of the original grand prix circuit!

On the trail you will learn about:

  • Bridge Corner

  • Priory

  • Wellington Straight

  • Brooklands

  • Luffield

  • The RAF memorial

Each panel has incredible, memorable stories of racing events and major changes at each corner, including pinpointing the location of Silverstone’s original pits. The Heritage Track Trail also gives you the amazing opportunity to walk on the old track itself, from Bridge corner to Priory.

*Access to THE HERITAGE TRACK TRAIL is included in your ticket to the museum but please note that the Trail may be closed on certain days during the year due to Major Events and/or Health & Safety reasons and/or at the request of Silverstone Circuits Ltd who own the land.

DOWNLOAD OUR TRACK TRAIL GUIDE

The Heritage Track Trail app is a popular addition to your museum experience. The app guides visitors around the retired section of the track on the Heritage Track Trail, giving insight into the history of the corners. This features footage of racing action at Silverstone as well as interviews and stories from circuit staff and marshals. Visitors can also explore how the circuit has changed through rubaway archive photography.

We would recommend that you download the App ahead of your visit.
