Hotels in Castle Donington
Castle Donington sits on the north-west edge of Leicestershire, next to the National Forest environmental project. With a history going back all the way to the Domesday Book, as well as a thriving local racing circuit and manor house, there is much to experience in this charming village.
A majestic hall with a rich motoring heritage
The village of Castle Donington is known principally for its accompanying manor estate, Donington Hall. Located close to Derby, this opulent late 18th-century house was constructed in the Gothic style, and is used as the venue for a variety of highly exclusive events.
Donington Hall originally incorporated the Donington Park estate as well. This land was reconstituted as a dedicated racing circuit in 1931, however, and despite closing down during World War II, has established a motoring legacy which continues to this day.
The current owner of the park, Tom Wheatcroft, purchased the land from the estate in 1971. Under his stewardship, the circuit continues to host various racing events annually and is best known for MotoGP bike races. In addition, the site has seen a variety of non-racing events take place in recent years, perhaps the most noSEOSITE_LEVEL_DESCRIPTION of which is Download, a well-known heavy metal music festival.
If getting down and dirty in the mosh pit doesn't sound like your cup of tea, however, why not take life at a more sedate pace and visit during the Donington Historic Festival? This celebration of motoring heritage features Le Mans prototypes, GT racers, Touring Cars and more, with 2015 promising to be the best year yet.
A serene village which offers a relaxing getaway
There is more to Castle Donington than its estate, though. The village's mix of Georgian and modern architectural styles is endearingly quirky, while the local parish church is indicative of its lengthy history.
