Brands Hatch is one of the best circuits in the UK to be a spectator at. If you want the very best seat in the house or are looking to organise a corporate day out, there are lots of Brands Hatch hospitality options which will be of interest to you.
In this article we explore all of the different options for hospitality boxes, suites and VIP experiences at Brands Hatch. Some are provided by Brand Hatch themselves, others are offered by private companies.
hospitality suite locations
Hospitality options at Brands Hatch are either supplied by Motorsport Vision (the circuit owners) themselves, or by private companies that lease and manage some of the hospitality suites.
Depending on which option you go for, the hospitality suites will be in one of three locations around the Indy circuit:
- Brabham Stewart building
- Director’s terrace
- MSV centre
The Braham Stewart building is located towards the end of the start / finish straight on the outside of the circuit, overlooking the entry for the first corner Paddock Hill Bend.
The Director’s terrace is attached to the end of the Brabham Stewart building, almost directly in line with the start / finish line.
The MSV centre is located at the other end of the start finish straight, right on the outside of the exit of the final corner Clearways (or Clark Curve, depending on which circuit configuration is in use).
There are no hospitalty suites or boxes around the additional Grand Prix circuit. Viewing this section is best done on a TV in one of the suites below!

The rest of the corners on the Indy circuit are in full view. Arguably this is the best view point at the whole circuit.
At major events there’s often a huge TV screen directly opposite these suites in South Bank car park, which along with the TVs in the suite, make for good additional viewing.
