From Oxford Station
There is good bus service (city 5) from Oxford Railway station to central Oxford and the High Street/Queens Lane bus stop.  Taxis are also available from the station. 

Driving in Central Oxford is not simple, and is not recommended.  Many roads in the centre ban cars, and routes from one side of the city to the other are circuitous.  On Monday and Tuesday (2nd & 3rd Sept) things are made worse with roads being closed for St Giles Fair.

Parking in Oxford is limited and expensive, we recommend using public transport or the Park and Ride service where possible. Please see links below for further information.
