Not being a huge racing fan myself I wasn't sure if I would enjoy the museum & race track. However it was very interesting & there are some gorgeous cars on display. We also managed to gain free entry to the FE car test day, an added bonus to our day out. Thank you Donington we had a great day... More

Me and my boyfriend went to this over the weekend and it was great, but we both especially love Japanese carss!! There were many different types of cars there to view. We also went in a passenger ride with the drifting cars which were awesome and i found it good that you could have a passenger ride.

What can I say, it's been over ten years since I went to donigton, I know they are working on the circuit and spectators areas but it's much nicer than I remember, great facilities and views good. Had a great day of racing and saw a few planes :)

Headed to Donington Park Tues 22nd July 2014 after missing our flight to go on honeymoon. You can imagine our distress and heartache as we trundled with our four year old the few mile to the park from the airport whilst we awaited a much later flight. We first arrived in the café where I may have just as well... More

I love this track and at times it feels like a second home. The access to the paddock (for most events inc. BTCC) is always a bonus and allows you to get close to the teams and cars/trucks/bikes. I enjoy photography and there are a number of places to get a sweeping view of the action without being blocked by... More

We went to the June 2013 Download festival at Donington Park. It was very muddy and the portable toilets were HORRIBLE because they were filthy and had no toilet paper. Other than that, the music event was awesome!

Easy to find location . Clean comfortable rooms - a bit worried when we saw 'Hen party' on the door across the corridor but didn't hear a peep! Good soundproofing!!!'

Great weekend filled with live music. Well organised festival. Plenty of food and drink vendors. Camping available . We did not camp but travelled on the shuttle from Derby each day. We returned by shuttle each night and stayed at Jurys Inn , Derby. Security , bar and food vendors friendly and helpful. Will return next year.
