+44 131 202 6544
Donington is adjacent to East Midland airport; or about 30 mins from Birmingham. Thistle customers simply walk to hotel from East Midlands, we will organise a pickup for other hotels
Donington Park is located in North-West Leicestershire in the centre of England, approximately 190 km from London. Thanks to its location just off the M1 and next-door to East Midlands Airport it is arguably one of the easiest circuits to reach.
The nearest airport is East Midlands, conveniently located adjacent to the circuit (3km away) and servicing operators such as bmi, British Airways, easyJet and Ryanair. Birmingham Airport is another option (45km away). Try skyscanner.net to find out what airlines will get you there.
If you are in one of our packages, we can provide an airport pickup. This is complementary for the SUPERIOR package at the nearby Hilton hotel, and a small charge for our Economy package in Derby.
National Express runs coaches from most UK airports to East Midlands - so this adds flexibility to your airport options. We can also arrange private pickups or even helicopters to the circuit.
The circuit lies approximately two hours away from London. Leave London via Edgeware Road (A5), passing Barnet, and continue straight until you reach the intersection with North Circular Road. Follow the signs to the M1 and continue along it for approximately 185km. Past Shepshed, look out for the A42 at exit 23a, and join it momentarily until you reach a roundabout. At the roundabout turn onto Ashby Road (A453), which passes adjacent to East Midlands Airport, and follow the signs until you reach the circuit.
Both Derby and Loughborough stations are approximately 20km away from the circuit in opposite directions, which would take about 20-25 minutes by taxi (www.nationalrail.co.uk)
Try the Skylink service from Nottingham to East Midlands Airport (www.skylink.co.uk). Alternatively take buses to either Castle Donington or East Midlands Airport from either Loughborough or Derby.
