Ted's Smart Travel Notebook: Budapest ??

FairFX is an official sponsor of Sky Sports F1® for the 2017 Formula 1 season, which means we’ll be running some great competitions throughout the season and our blog will feature lots of exciting travel tips, videos and behind the scenes insights. Head to our Sky Sports F1® hub to see the latest videos and tips >>

Budapest hosts this weekend's Grand Prix and, according to Sky Sports F1's lead presenter Simon Lazenby and F1 journalist Adam Hay-Nicholls, it's one of the must see cities of the season.

Budapest offers up some fantastic racing action but it also has a lot to offer for those wanting to extend their Formula One weekend to a week (or longer...) and those more interested in soaking up some culture rather than racing fumes. The Hungarian capital is also often featured in our lists of top value travel destinations as your pounds are likely to go much further here than in the rest of Europe.

To help you plan your trip we've teamed up with Ted Kravitz of Sky Sports F1® for his Smart Travel Notebook ahead of the Hungarian Grand prix.


Check out the video above for Ted's top tips on what to see and do in Budapest, plus how to get around the city and to the circuit.
