Getting to Oxford by Car

Oxford is 56 miles (90km) west of London.

Driving to Oxford

The centre of Oxford is a large one-way system and, if you wish to get near the conference locations, coming in from the North is strongly advised. Parking near the conference locations is minimal.

Parking in Oxford

Parking in Oxford is very limited and expensive and the traffic wardens are strict and efficient. The only large, central car-park is the multi-storey behind the Westgate shopping centre. As an alternative, consider the four Park and Ride services on the main roads into Oxford: Bus services run from these car-parks every few minutes, Monday-Friday: 7am-6:30pm, Saturday: 8am-6:30pm, Sunday: no service. Parking is free and the fare into Oxford is 1 pound.


Getting to Oxford by Eurostar

Direct trains are available from Paris and Brussels to London via the Eurostar. The Eurostar terminal is at London Waterloo and a short connection on the underground is required to London Victoria (for buses to Oxford) or London Paddington (for trains to Oxford).
