how carry luggage from luton to oxford

by mariapn

Dear friends,
I am arriving to Luton airport with a group of friends in a week. We have rented an economic car to go to Oxford, but we afraid it is to small for our luggage (we are 5 girls). Any idea about what we can do?
There is any lockers where we can leave the luggage that won´t have room in the car and come back next day to take it? There is any way, not expensive, to send the luggage from luton to london?
By the way, do you know how long it takes from Luton airport to Oxford?

You can either get a bigger car, which is possible if available at the rental counter or I would suggest the following. Put as many people or luggage in the car as you wish then have the left over people take the train to Oxford. The drive will take without traffic a little over 1 hour. The train will take around 2.5hrs. This will help you in not having to return to the airport to pick up left luggage.
The train tickets should cost around 6 pounds one way per person. Do the math and figure out which is cheaper;the bigger car or the train tickets.

Oops. Sorry. I made a mistake on the price of the train tickets when I typed them. The price is around 29 pounds. It might be cheaper to get a bigger car.

By far the cheapest and easiest way will be to upgrade to a bigger car. Train fares or left luggage and extra petrol costs will cost much more, I expect.

If you have rented the car from one of the major companies you can probably swap it back for a smaller one once you are in Oxford.

Have a great time in Oxford - it is gorgeous here at the moment!

Oh, and it is normally a little over an hour to drive, but UK traffic is unpredicatable and often bad so you always have to allow extra time!

Why spend your cash on train tickets etc. There is a drop off car park right outside the airport. Put 4 people & as much luggage as you can into the car. The person left over goes back into the airport with the leftover luggage and puts their feet up in one of the cafes. The journey takes about 1 1/4 hours, but be aware there are roadworks in the Headington Area of Oxford which are causing long delays. Link to website
Not sure if you know Oxford, but there are number of restricted streets for cars which means detours. Not as bad as it sounds once you know the route. Parking is also difficult & very expense in the city centre. Another link
Happy motoring & if you need anymore help or advice send me an email.

The Views From St. Mary's Church...

by coceng

There are 127 steps to go up the tower of St. Mary's Church.
From the top, we can see excellent views over the city of Oxford !
These are my photos, my own views from my camera, through my eyes to the top; on the tower & descending down...
On this photo, taken by me towards The River Thames; You can see 3 pointy towers. The 3rd one on the far right (not that visible on my photo).
Anyway, the first tower, on the left is Christ Church Cathedral; The middle one is Christ Church Tom Tower & the 3rd one (not that visible) is St. Aldate's Church...
Nice !

Ed Alleyne Johnson

by Elodie_Caroline

Ed Alleyne Johnson started his musical life as a busker on the streets of the city of Oxford in the 1980's.He came to his glory with his music on CD 'Purple electronic Violin concerto' in 1992.
His music is as beautiful and mind provoking as any of the best 'Classical' music pieces are. His music, as mentioned in the title of his CD is all done with an electronic Violin, he can make each note stretch forever and it is truly beautiful and it makes you feel that you have been taken to a far away place on a very warm sunny summers day.

Try and get hold of a copy if you can......

1-4 Oxford suite
5-8 Inner city music
9 Motivation
10 Concrete Eden.
Ed Alleyne Johnson has made other CDs,but I'm afraid I haven't gotten around to them yet :)

Anti-War Demonstrations

by barryg23

Before (and during) the recent war in Iraq, Oxford was, just like many other cities in the UK, the scene of many anti-war demonstrations. This one in particular disrupted traffic and blocked roads all evening - but still the UK politicians did not listen...

Great Jewry in medieval Oxford

by evaanna

You will find this plaque commemorating the presence of the Jewish community in medieval Oxford right in front of the East Gate, now leading to the Botanic Garden. In the 12th century and even earlier Oxford had a large Jewish population inhabiting the area between Carfax Tower and Folly Bridge with the Synagogue in the middle, on the site of the present Christ Church. The whole area was known as Great Jewry and the names of some of the remaining houses, like Jacob's or Moyses' Halls suggest that they may have been owned by Jews who would keep students in lodgings. The path from Merton College to the Botanic Garden along the old city wall still bears the name of the Dead Man's Walk, as it was the route funeral processions took from the Synagogue to the Jewish burial ground.
Sadly, already in the 13th century persecutions of Jews started in Oxford together with the foundation of a number of monasteries and lasted until 1290 when Edward III expelled the Jews from England. The only traces of their presence there are some names of places and this plaque outside the Botanic Garden.
