Getting there

by delfromhi

How do I get from oxford to portree. What mode of transportation is there available?

RE: Getting there

by DarloCol

Do you mean Portree, Isle of Skye?

If so, this is not an easy journey. It would involve about 12 hours of travelling. You would need either to take a train to Birmingham and change to the Glasgow train. From there take a bus (usually called a 'coach' in UK) from Glasgow Coach Station to Portree.

Alternatively, you could travel south by train to Heathrow Airport and fly to Glasgow or Aberdeen, then take a coach from there.

If you are over 21 you could hire a car, but remember that UK roads are very congested. It would be a long drive to do in one day.

Oxford to Portree

by clivedinburgh

Take the bus to London Heathrow airport (Birmingham is closer but has less flights).

Fly from Heathrow to Inverness on BMI

http://www.flybmi.com/bmi/en-gb/index.aspx?&linkid=351

From Inverness you can catch a bus to Portree with a journey time of just over 3 hours.

If you are driving the use the routefinder on the AA website.

Travel Tips for Oxford

Where Is The University??

by aliante1981

The answer to this is 'anywhere and nowhere', depending on how you look at it. It is nowhere because there is no main campus. And it is pretty much everywhere (especially if you take the centre of Oxford) since the college and other related buildings are scattered throughout Oxford, so you never know where you might run into one of them.

Corpus Christi College - Most Famous Students

by aliante1981

During the years, Corpus Christi College has had its full quota of famous alumni. Here's the list including just some of them:

Al Alvarez
Isaiah Berlin
Robert Bridges
John Keble
Vikram Seth
William Waldegrave

Cycling

by shutterlust

Cycling in Oxford is a way of life. It's a city without an underground and limited buses that don't go into the city centre, hence the use of cycles to get around the vast, sprawling city.

When touring Oxford, please watch out for the hurtling bicycles down the cycling tracks. The cycling tracks are for the cyclists benefit, not yours, so watch out. You may also want to watch out for HGV drivers and other 4-wheeled vehicles illegally operating on the cycling tracks, even though they should not be there. So watch yourself around those white-line-down-the-middle-of-the-pavement type cycle paths! Keep to the pedestrian side of the pavement and you'll be alright!

May Day

by barryg23

On May 1st, it's customary in Oxford for crowds to gather at Magdalen Bridge and listen to Magdalen College Choir welcome the summer! It's also traditional for people to jump from the bridge into the river, though in recent years the police have tried to stop this for safety reasons. I have yet to hear the May Day choir, quite possibly beacause it starts at 6am!

Spend time along the Thames in Abingdon

by marinarena

Abingdon is one of the little charming towns of Oxfordshire, just due south of the centre of Oxford. If you want to leave the fast pace of Oxford streets, walk about 10 minutes from the centre and you'll find tranquility. Scenery is lovely especially in the main town park where one can catch a glimpse of the train and simply count the different birds swimming in the pond and roaming all about.
