60 families can join Hilton for a day out at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking

Links on Head for Points pay us an affiliate commission. A list of our partners is here.

EDIT:  This has now SOLD OUT.  As all 60 sets of tickets were still available late last night, we can be fairly certain that every attendee will be a Head for Points reader!  I hope you all have a great day.

Hilton Honors runs occasional tours of the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, where you can see the Formula 1 and production cars close up.

These trips are expensive (100,000 Hilton Honors points per pair) and during the day, usually during term time.  This means they are not great for children.

McLaren and Hilton have now launched a low-cost event especially for families.

Hilton McLaren family fun day

Take a look here.

Hilton is organising a Hilton Family Day on Saturday 27th July.  To quote:

“Join Hilton at their exclusive Family Day event at the McLaren Technology Centre with our McLaren Formula 1 and Golf partners. Hosted at the home of one of motorsport’s most prestigious facilities, you and your family will have behind-the-scenes access to McLaren’s state of the art HQ, as well as life on Tour experiences and golf tips told by Hilton Golf Ambassador and Ryder Cup star Jamie Donaldson.

Your family will have the opportunity to take part in a range of unique experiential activities, including tours of the MTC Boulevard, walking among the historical Formula 1 cars, setting a new time in the Pit Stop Challenge, the chance to test golfing skills on the renowned Hilton Bedroom Chipping experience and to try and beat a pro on the ultimate golfing simulator, plus much more! Your family can also take advantage of a range of food and refreshments on offer throughout the day, as well as a variety of giveaways and prizes to be won!”

The package includes (for FOUR people):

Exclusive access to the McLaren Technology Centre on July 27, 2019, between 11:00am – 4:00pm 
Tours of the MTC Boulevard to walk among the historical Formula 1 cars
Meet and greet with Hilton Golf Ambassador, Jamie Donaldson
Pit stop challenge 
Hilton Bedroom Chipping Experience
The Ultimate Golfing Simulator
Virtual reality experience 
Prizes and giveaways 
Refreshments and snacks served throughout the event 
Return transfers from Woking Train Station 

Hilton McLaren family fun day

There are 60 packages available, priced at 25,000 Hilton Honors points per package.  Given that I value a Hilton point at 0.33p, you are effectively ‘paying’ £85 for the full package above for four people.  This seems like a good deal to me.

You can redeem your Hilton Honors points for the McLaren family package here.

How to earn Hilton Honors points via UK credit cards

As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards.  Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card?  It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade and Melia Rewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.

  1. Double edged sword – hooray they’re doing it in the holidays, boo they’re doing it while we’re away on our hols (thanks Iberia 90k avios 🙂

    How terribly inconsiderate of them, perhaps I missed their call checking on my availability before setting the date…

  2. rams1981 says:

    thanks for this. Looking at terms can be 4 adults as well I think. Just says any child needs to be accompanied by an adult.

  3. SOLD OUT

  4. Shoestring says:

    sold out

  5. Arnaud Amiel says:

    Thanks for the heads up. Living in Woking with a little boy who will just have been celebrating his birthday, this is perfect.
    Luckily, I booked early enough.

  6. Peter K says:

    Thanks for that Rob. Looking forward to it.

  7. You’d think Hilton would email their members about these auction experiences and not have to find out afterwards from 3rd party websites

  8. Speaking about cars, UBER competitor Kapten launched in London, and giving %50 discount rides in London until end of the month.
    For extra £10 , use code BULKOR while sign up, then use code HILONDON before your ride.

    • The quote from central London to Heathrow is £19. which is extremely cheap for a private hire.
