Travel to Oxford
Oxford is very accessible by public transport (rail and bus), but is EXTREMELY limited in parking, so we advise that you do not come to Oxford by car. If it is unavoidable, then please contact the organisers to discuss arrangements.
Arriving by air: London Heathrow is the most convenient airport to reach Oxford. There is a direct bus service (“The Airline” bus) from the airport to Gloucester Green, Oxford; this bus also serves London Gatwick airport. When arriving at London Stansted, use either the train to London Liverpool St. (on arrival take tube (Circle Line or Hammersmith and City Line) to Paddington station) to connect to Great Western services to Oxford, or use National Express coach (bus) service; for London Luton airport use National Express coach (bus) service. A direct train service to Oxford (about 55 minutes) can be caught from Birmingham International railway station, which is linked to the airport by monorail (note that there is no rail transport to Oxford from Birmingham International late at night, and from Oxford to the airport early in the morning. There is a National Express bus from Oxford that stops at the airport. Delegates should check connecting travel arrangements before booking flights).
Arriving by Eurostar train: Eurostar trains use St Pancras railway station in London. The most convenient way to reach Oxford is to take the London Underground (Tube) on Circle Line or Hammersmith & City Line to London Paddington rail station. At Paddington, you can take a direct First Great Western rail service to Oxford: note that there are fast trains (about 45 min) and slow trains (about 2 h) and also peak and off peak times.
Coach (bus) services: Eurolines operates Europe-wide coach (bus) services, some of which go direct to Oxford. Alternatively, they also operate to London Victoria coach station. From here, an Oxford Tube coach service can be taken – this service operates every 10 min, 24 h a day.
