Luckily for those who don't have the budget to blow big bucks on accommodation, there are cheaper alternatives: canvas, campers and caravans.
With the race falling at the peak of British summertime, a weekend away camping at one of the many camp-sites along the racing route would be a great alternative to a stuffy hotel room, and at a fraction of the cost to boot.
This map (put together for our client Salop Leisure) shows the route the race will take, plotted against camp-sites which make viewing the race as convenient as possible. Clicking on a camp-site will give you the address, website and telephone number of the site, as well as a picture surrounding areas taken from Google Street View.
