With football’s World Cup and the Wimbledon tennis championships dominating the headlines at the moment, interest in sport In England is currently booming.
English sports fans are often spoilt for choice, with top class events regularly taking place across the sporting spectrum throughout the year.
Read on to find out more about some of the upcoming quality sporting action you can find around England this autumn.
Formula 1 – British Grand Prix
The unpredictable Formula 1 season heads to Silverstone for the showpiece British Grand Prix on July 8 and it promises to be one of the most exciting races of 2018.
Four different winners in the last four races means there is just one point separating Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton at the top of the Drivers’ Championship.
Hamilton is chasing a record sixth British GP win and unprecedented fifth in a row, but he will need to bounce back from a disappointing retirement at last weekend’s Austrian Grand Prix.
There are some superb villages in close proximity to Silverstone, making the event one of the best to build a short break away around.
Cricket – England v India
England’s Test matches against India during August will be only the second time since 1959 the current world number one ranked side have played a five-match series on these shores.
India begin their tour in July with a three-match Twenty20 series, followed by three one-day internationals before the Test matches at Edgbaston, Lord’s, Trent Bridge, the Ageas Bowl and The Oval.
