The Hilton Garden Inn will open at Silverstone race track in 2020, featuring 197 guest rooms and a rooftop terrace. It will offer raceday hospitality experiences for all the major sporting events held at the venue.

There will also be direct access, over a cross-circuit footbridge, to The Silverstone Wing Conference Centre which has 12,500sqm of flexible space for up to 3,000 people.

The new-build hotel will be constructed on Silverstone’s International Pits straight, with views over the track directly from guest room balconies.

Stuart Pringle, MD, Silverstone, said: "The Silverstone Experience – a brand new visitor attraction celebrating the past, present and future of the circuit and British motorsport opens in Spring 2019 and this, along with our increased growth in the conference and exhibition side of the business, has resulted in a growing demand for quality accommodation at the circuit."
