Travelling Zoo!


Have you ever fancied meeting a meerkat, holding a hawk or stroking a spider? Well you’re in luck!

Silverstone Woodlands Campsite is excited to have teamed up with Bryan Paterson to bring you a travelling zoo to the Family Entertainments area for Formula One and MotoGP. You’ll be able to get up close and personal with creatures and critters great and small. From lizards to spiders, hedgehogs to snakes and our favourite, the meerkats and owls! There’ll be expert keepers on hand full of interesting facts and answers to all your questions. With over 40 years experience, Bryan Paterson has become one of the UK’s most respected falconry presenters. He is very keen to share his wealth of knowledge with the younger generations too, so be sure to pay him a visit! 

            On the Friday of the British Formula One we’ll be welcoming all of these critters into the Family Fun Zone in the campsite. As part of our exciting improvements to the Family Campsite, the travelling zoo is brought to you as one of three interactive, educational workshops. In the programme of workshops, you can also expect to be treated to circus skills and exciting science experiments. All this entertainment will be taking place in the closest entertainment to the Silverstone Circuit in the Woodlands Family Fun Zone. There’ll also be live music, activities, sports and games just a short walk for the family from the track.
