All of the options on this map are available for the F1. For other events such as the MotoGP, Festival or BTCC just a few of these are available. Each of the hospitality area overviews lower down this page states which events they are available for.

This hospitality option is managed by F1 themselves as they provide this at every race in the calendar, so want their offering to be consistent at each venue. Tickets can be booked through the F1 Hospitality website.

Paddock Club tickets also include exclusive pit lane walks and guided tours around the track. See the full Silverstone F1 weekend schedule for the timings of those.
