    Oxford Transportation

    Oxford Tube and Oxford Espress are two bus companies that offer frequent connections between Oxford and London-Victoria. It is a very convenient way to travel between the two cities. Oxford Tube runs a little more often (up to every 10 minutes!), but both will make the trip in 90 minutes provided that traffic is running smoothly. Even better: They...

    Oxford Transportation

    There is no direct trian from Heathrow to Oxford, so rather than take a coach to Reading then change onto a train, why not just take the "airline" coach all the way to Oxford - it runs every 30 mins and the journey only takes 90 mins - see www.oxfordbus.co.uk/main.php?page_id=24 .

  • Traffic

    Oxford Transportation

    Whichever means of transport you choose to get around Oxford, it can be a nuisance. Going by car is by far the worst option as there is hardly any affordable parking in the centre (and similarly further out). Moreover, the centre cannot be traversed during the day - the only road that leads through it is reserved for buses and taxis, and even they...

  • Touring by car

    Unless you book an organised tour, it would be hard to visit this area other than by car, though a determined planner with time on their hands could make use of the network of buses, and there is a mainline route through parts of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds. On our recent visit we followed a route that took us from London on the M40 and A40,...

  • It is Tough to Get Stopped!

    This is another view of the thatched roof house that caught our attention as we drove through Tadmarton. One of the difficulties that I found on our travels was having some space to pull over for a photo or a good look whenever we came upon something that interested us. In this case, we had driven by the house, so I pulled into a side lane a short...

  • Pedestrian and bikers attention

    Yes, Oxford is truely a students town. It almost resembles any given town in The Netherlands, as for the amount of bicycles that are standing, laying, and hanging around. The towns centre is also not that huge and distnaces can be bridged easily by bike or by foot. With this you are also not an annoyance for others (like cars are in such...

    From London, the Oxford Tube (a coach - not to be mistaken for the tube train in London), leaves Victoria every 10 minutes, 24 hours a day. Return costs around £7.On foot - there is no need for anything more. Parking is very difficult and Oxford has a notoriously complicated traffic system - if in a car, best to use the Park and Ride. The...

There's a fast train that takes just over an hour and a train that requires you to change in Reading (also a nice ride)!Best way to see Oxford is by foot or bicycle (altho you'd better know what you are doing if you want to bike thru the busy narrow streets!). The buses...

    If you are coming via London then you can get the coach to Oxford, either the Oxford tube or the X90. I would recommend the Oxford tube because it is more frequent and is a double decker coach, far more comfortable!You can also catch the train there from London Paddington which is more expensive than the coach and not much quicker.

    From London, there is a bus service called Oxford Tube that runs frequently both day and night. www.oxfordtube.comDon't try to go to the centre of Oxford by car. Parking is almost impossible.

    There are many tours to Oxford. For me, I took the Oxford Tube from Hyde Park Corner, pay 7 pounds and found myself among 3 other passengers( it was a Sunday morning ) in the big, spacious red double-decker. The journey took one and a half hour.Walk, walk and walk. If you are tired, stop for snacks and coffee at the numerous coffee houses....

    Parking is frightful! Park on the edge of town at the Park and Ride and use the bus to get into the city center. You can see most of the main points by walking. Everything is fairly close together. Walking tours are probably still available.

    By train or bus. There are good services to Oxford from most parts of the UK Walk! There's lots of traffic restriction measures in place now and the city centre is small enough to walk around if you're reasonably fit.
