Travelling to Oxford: Oxford is well-connected to Heathrow, Gatwick airports:

  • Heathrow Airport served by The Airline bus service (frequent buses, takes around 90 minutes) and National Rail (more expensive, via the Heathrow Express to the centre of London).

  • Gatwick Airport served by The Airline bus service (hourly buses, takes about 2½ hours) and National Rail (most trains change at Reading station).

  • London's other airports (Luton, Stansted and London City) are less well-connected to Oxford: reliable travel directions can be found here. It might be faster to travel via London.

  • Birmingham has a direct train to Oxford (approximately every 30 minutes). The last train from Birmingham to Oxford tends to stop from 9 PM onwards.

When travelling in the UK, it is advised that you purchase a "return ticket", this will be cheaper than purchasing two single tickets.

Driving by car: Public parking in the city centre is very limited and the best advice for those coming by car is probably to use the Park & Ride services on the city outskirts (see map). For information on prices and parking restrictions, please visit:
