Whilst the student bars and house/dorm parties are incredibly fun ... I think most people will agree that clubbing in Oxford leaves a lot to be desired. Luckily for everyone London is only a ninety minute bus ride away with more good nightlife than imaginable. The Oxford Tube is a nice big bus that operates at least once an hour all day and night. I've spent countless sunrises in these buses on my way back to Oxford sobering up. The bus ends/starts out from Victoria Coach Station in London and also picks up in Marble Arch, Notting Hill, Sheperds Bush, and Hendon. In Oxford the picks up/drops off in a number off places and ends/starts from Gloucester Green. The price is much cheaper than taking the train.
Oxford Tube is an excellent way of reaching Oxford, and can be economical as well if you put some thought into planning. And – further on the positive side – you will not have parking hassles.
A day return without student discounts is 12 Pounds, with discounts it is 9. If your outward journey starts later than 3 pm you will pay as little as 7 Pounds. In London, the buses depart from Victoria Bus Station, and also stops at Marble Arch, Nottingham Hill Gate, and Shepherd’s Bush.
Son varias las compañías de autobuses que realizan servicio desde Londres a Oxford. Desde Victoria Coach Station suelen salir la mayoría de ellos. Hay autobuses cada 15 minutos y el precio suele variar según la compañía que cogas.
The X90 runs throughout the day (in fact 24hour service) give a cheaper alternative to the train for travel to/from London.
It has good pick-up and drop-off points in London (Victoria Coach Station, Victoria train station, Marble Arch, Baker Street, Hillingdon) and in Oxford (Gloucester Green, High Street, St Clements, Headington shops, Thornhill park & ride).
Obviously, the journey time depends on traffic. Rush hour can be a little slow (mornings London-Oxford, evenings vice-versa). Also if going to Oxford in the early evening head for Victoria (as the bus can be full at Gloucester Place (Baker Street tube)).
Another regular 24 hour coach service to/from London. This service offers slightly different stops to the Oxford Espress, as well as slightly bigger buses.
London stops: Hillingdon, Shepherd's Bush, Notting Hill Gate, Marble Arch and Victoria.
Oxford stops incl.: Gloucester Green, High Street, St.Clement's, Headington Shops and Sandhills.
If you're coming from London, there's a bus that runs every half an hour or so from Vic Station. It's a quick, enjoyable ride with nice views of West London and Oxfordshire on your way into Oxford. Sit on the top of the double-decker, read your copy of the Times or a footy mag that you picked up at Victoria Station, and enjoy the ride.
The Oxford Express runs 24 hour service between Ox & London & the airports...
Oxford to Heathrow Airport (every 30 minutes daytimes)
Oxford to Gatwick Airport (every hour daytimes)
Oxford to central London (every 15 - 20 minutes daytimes)
I'm pretty sure that London to Ox is the same.

This was the best bus tour I have ever done. I definately recommend that if you're in Oxford go and do it...
