Get closer to McLaren this summer as we celebrate the best of our British heritage in an adventure-filled weekend at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The first part of your weekend combines modern London with its rich history. You will stay at the Shangri-La Hotel in the iconic Shard and discover the treasures of the royal residence of Kensington Palace. Make your way from London down to Goodwood behind the wheel of a McLaren.

Your time at Goodwood will be split between relaxing at a medieval style manor hotel and enjoying all the festival has to offer with VIP hospitality in McLaren House and the Sponsor’s Enclosure. One of the highlights of your experience will be attending the world-famous black tie Goodwood Ball, an annual event that attracts the cream of motorsport royalty.
