Planning your journey

Train – Oxford railway station is approximately a 20 minute walk away or 10 minutes by taxi. Bikes can be hired at the train station or around the city. The main stations that go directly from London to Oxford are London Paddington or London Marylebone. Booking train tickets in advance is usually much cheaper. You can book via www.trainline.com.

Bus – The nearest bus stop and airport bus stops are on the High Street just outside the Examination Schools (Queen’s Lane stop). Information about buses in the city can be found here.

Car – We do not recommend driving to Oxford as the city centre is not particularly car friendly. Parking is very limited and there is no car parking on site. Should you need to drive you can try using Just Park. Please note there is a Park and Ride system in Oxford, but parking is limited to 72 hours maximum.

Airports – You can fly into London Heathrow, London Gatwick, London Luton, London Stansted or Birmingham Airports. London Heathrow and Birmingham airports are the closest to Oxford. Please note that although flights to some airports may seem cheaper, do check the travel options, time and costs of travelling between your chosen airport and Oxford as the costs and travel duration can vary. Travel between the airports and Oxford can be made by train or coach. 

Eurostar – you can take the Eurostar to London St. Pancras International Station. You will then need to travel by train or coach to Oxford. You can search for further information here.
