Find us right in the heart of the UK capital during British Grand Prix week

The Williams Racing London Fan Zone, presented by Kraken, opens on Tuesday!
For six days, you can find us in Piccadilly Circus, where we have plenty in store, including the FW46 show car, exclusive prizes, and an opportunity to test our Esports rigs.
In addition to the multiple-floor Fan Zone, we have some very special guest Q&A visits from Logan Sargeant, Alex Albon, James Vowles and more.
London has one of the most extensive public transport networks, but we know how difficult it can be to navigate, so we’ve created this simple guide to help you find us in no time.

By Tube

Our recommended method of getting to the Williams Racing London Fan Zone is by Underground, as we are right outside Piccadilly Circus tube station.
Piccadilly Circus is served by both the Piccadilly and Bakerloo lines. When you arrive at the station, head for the ticket barriers then look for Exit 1. We are just a few metres from this exit.
Leicester Square station (on the Northern and Piccadilly lines) is also a short five-minute walk from the venue.
Green Park (on the Jubilee, Victoria and Piccadilly lines) is where you’ll find the nearest step-free station, with lifts from platform to street level. We are a 10-minute walk from this station.
The Underground can get extremely busy and warm in July, so make sure you carry a bottle of water with you and plan in advance to reach us in plenty of time.

By Bus

London’s iconic red double-decker buses stop just a few seconds from our front door. An impressive 22 different bus routes all serve Piccadilly Circus.
You can find a full breakdown of every single route going on the TfL website.

By Train

Thankfully, due to our Fan Zone’s central location, it’s quick and convenient to get from any of London’s major railway stations.
Paddington: Bakerloo Line to Piccadilly Circus – 10 minutes King’s Cross & St Pancras: Piccadilly Line to Piccadilly Circus – 10 minutes Victoria: Victoria Line to Green Park, Piccadilly Line to Piccadilly Circus – 10 minutes Euston: Northern Line to Leicester Square – 5 minutes + 5 minute walk Waterloo: Northern Line to Leicester Square – 5 minutes + 5 minute walk London Bridge: Jubilee Line to Green Park, Piccadilly Line to Piccadilly Circus – 18 minutes Liverpool Street: Central Line to Holborn, Piccadilly Line to Piccadilly Circus – 20 minutes

By Plane

Every of London’s major international airports has rail travel into the capital via one of the train stations mentioned above.
Those arriving at Heathrow can catch the Piccadilly Line straight to our door. The journey should take no longer than an hour at a fraction of the price of the other methods available to you.
Please note that we expect the Fan Zone to be very busy, so please refrain from bringing large bags or luggage to the venue.

By Car

London traffic, limited parking in the immediate area, and the Congestion Charge zone all make travelling by car extraordinarily tricky, and it is not advised.
But if you still want to make the trip by car, we recommend parking at one of the stations on the edge of the city and catching the tube.
Alternatively, you can use one of the ride-hailing apps operating in the area or catch a black cab – though be warned, journeys don’t come cheap.

Getting to Silverstone from London

For those looking to make a pit stop with us on the way to Silverstone for the weekend – the train will be your best route method.
To get to the “Home of British Motor Racing” from our London base, you’ll want to get to Euston Station to catch any of the trains to Milton Keynes Central or Northampton – from there, grab a shuttle bus or taxi.
Wolverton is the closest station to Silverstone Circuit, approximately 10 miles from the venue, but is rarely served by shuttle buses.
