The Silverstone Club Corner grandstands give arguably the best view of any seating area at the whole Grand Prix circuit.
But of the three Club grandstands, only one has the optimal view of some great overtaking spots, the start / finish line, the pitlane and the podium.
This article provides everything you need to know about Club Corner including photos and videos of the view, seating plans, tips on the best place to sit and the nearest entrances and car parks.

is Club corner a good place to sit at Silverstone?
Club grandstand is arguably the best place to sit at Silverstone. It has views of the final technical section of the Grand Prix track, Vale and Club corners. Additionally, if you sit in Club C you can also see all of the Hamilton Straight (the start / finish straight), the whole pitlane and the podium at the end of the Silverstone Wing building.
Vale corner and Club corner always see a lot of overtaking action. In fact this is the very place Lewis Hamilton did his double overtake on Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez in the 2022 British Grand Prix.
Club grandstand is split in to three sections – Club A, B and C. Club A is a separate grandstand, Club B and C are part of the same stand which is split about 2/3rds of the way along for ticket and seat numbering purposes.
Read on further to see why Club C is my personal choice for the best place to sit. No other grandstand or seating area at Silverstone has the same coverage of such a large section of track, plus start / finish line, pitlane and podium.
For those camping at Silverstone some of the closest campsites to Club corner include the Golf Club, Woodlands and Dadford Road campsite.
are there big TV screens at Club corner?
There are two large screens opposite to the Club grandstands. These are positioned on the right hand side of the circuit at Vale corner. The two screens are angled slightly differently. People sat in Club C will have a better view of the left hand screen, whereas those sat in Club A will probably be able to see the right hand screen more easily.
Those sat at the very left hand end of Club C (nearest the start straight) may also be able to see one of the screens attached to the pitlane building.
The images below first show the view of the screens from Club C, and then from Club A.
is Club grandstand covered?
Club Corner A grandstand is not covered, it is completely open to the elements.
Club Corner B and C grandstands are covered. They have a roof over the top of them, plus there is a small visor at the front that drops down a couple of feet to provide extra protection for those seated lower down. The sides of the grandstands are not covered, so if you are sat on the end you might get wet but you will have an amazing, unobstructed view.
Club A grandstand
where is Club A grandstand at Silverstone?
Club A grandstand at Silverstone in on the outside of the circuit (left-hand side) right on the exit of Vale corner. Of the three Club grandstands, it is the one closest to Vale corner and furthest from Hamilton Straight.
It is directly adjacent to Club B grandstand (on the left of Club A as you look at the track).
Club A grandstand is North-East facing so you will pretty much have the sun behind you most of the day.
view from Club A grandstand
Because of its location you get an amazing, close up view of the action coming in to the tight left-right corners of Vale. And this is always a prime spot for overtaking. But you aren’t able to see much of the cars as they head on to the pit straight, as the pitlane building blocks your view pretty quickly once they have exited Club corner. You can see the cars as they enter the pitlane, but none of the action in the pits themselves.
The pink track highlighted in the image below is roughly what can be seen from Club A grandstand. The limits of this at either end will vary slightly depending on which side of the grandstand you sit.
The video below was filmed from Club A grandstand and gives a good idea of what is visible.

The grandstand has rows from A (front / lowest down) to U (back / highest up) and seat numbers that run from 1 (closest to Vale corner) to 111 (closest to the start / finish straight). There is no row I (eye).
Club B grandstand
where is Club B grandstand at Silverstone?
Silverstone’s Club B grandstand is the next grandstand along from Club A. It is on the outside of the track (left-hand side) pretty much equidistant between Vale and Club corners.
Club B is also North-East facing so again the sun will be behind you most of the day.

view from Club B grandstand
Being a little closer to Club corner, Club B has a better view of the run in to Vale from the exit of Stowe. Additionally you are able to see more of the start / finish straight, and have a better chance of seeing some pitlane and podium action. Although this depends on which side of the grandstand you sit in.
The diagram below shows the pink highlighted areas as the parts of the track that are mostly visible from Club B.
The video below also shows the view from here when Lewis did his double overtake at the 2022 British Grand Prix. Just listen to the atmosphere in the covered stand!
Club B seating plan
Enter your name and email below and the Silverstone Club B grandstand seating plan will be sent to your inbox (the file is too large to host here!)
The rows run from A (front / lowest) to U (back / highest) and seat numbers start at 208 (closest to Vale) and run to 427 (closest to the start / finish straight). There is no row I (eye).
To stand a chance of having a view of the pit straight, pits and podium aim for higher seat numbers.
Club C grandstand
where is Club C grandstand at Silverstone?
Club C is directly on the outside (left-hand side) of Club corner at Silverstone. It is adjacent Club B grandstand.
Club C is East facing, so you may be looking in to the sun early in the morning but it will slowly move around to the right hand side of you and eventually behind you throughout the day.

view from Club C grandstand
Club C has, for me, the best view of any grandstand at Silverstone. You have an excellent view of Vale and Club corners, plus you get to see more of the exit of Stowe corner than from any of the Club grandstands.
Additionally, you can see the whole start / finish straight plus the entrance to the first corner Abbey, as well as the full pitlane. And if that wasn’t enough it is directly opposite the podium. The only other grandstand with such a good view of the podium is Hamliton A, but that one has a very limited view of Vale.
The image below shows how much of the circuit can be seen from Club C, highlighted in pink.
The video below gives an overview of what can be seen from Club C.
In 2023 the Club C grandstand was extended with more seats being added on the extreme left hand-side of the stand (as you look at the circuit).
Some of these new seats are actually parallel with the start / finish straight. As such, they’re close to the adjacent Hamilton A grandstand and can have their view of the end of the straight and Abbey corner blocked slightly. The further to the left you sit and the higher up you are, the more the Hamilton A stand will block your view.
The video below was taken from seat 648 row P and you can see that the view from here is slightly impeded by the grandstand to the left.
Club C seating plan
Enter your name and email below and the Silverstone Club C grandstand seating plan will be sent to your inbox (the file is too large to host here!)
The rows run from A (front / lowest) to U (back / highest) and seat numbers go from 428 (nearest Vale) to 678 (nearest the start line). There is no row I (eye).
Seat numbers 599 and above are part of the extended section. Seat numbers 616 and up are parallel to the main straight and can have their view impeded by the adjacent grandstand.
where's the best place to sit?
Without a doubt Club C is the best of the three Club Corner grandstands at Silverstone, if you get the right seats.
If you can, avoid seat numbers above 615 as these will have their view impeded by the adjacent Hamilton A grandstand, especially if you sit in the higher rows. If you do get those high seat numbers, go for the lower rows.
The best choice s are seat numbers below 600 in Club C and in the higher rows. From there you’ll have an incredible view of Vale, Club, the whole of Hamilton straight and even the entry to the first corner.
Plus you’ll be able to see the pitlane and the podium. All of this makes Club C, in my opinion, the best grandstand at Silverstone.
how many seats are in Club grandstand?
The three Club grandstands have roughly the following numbers of seats:
- Club A: 1500
- Club B: 3400
- Club C: 2500
