Getting to the college

The M40, M4 and A34 provide easy access by car from London, leaving the M40 at Junction 8. The M40 links Birmingham to Oxford from the north, leaving at Junction 9. There is no parking available at the College due to it's central location on the High Street. The city’s Park and Ride service is the easiest way to get into Oxford by car. There are five park and ride sites located around Oxford's ring road, with regular bus services to the city centre, #400 stops outside the entrance to the College.

You can walk to the College from the station in approximately 20 minutes, or take a bus or taxi.
