Coaches to Oxford

Taking a coach is a convenient way to reach the historic centre of the university city of Oxford.

Oxford enjoys excellent coach connections with destinations across the United Kingdom, and particularly with London. A fast bus service leaves London Victoria coach station for Oxford, with departures every 15 minutes throughout the day and night.

Coaches from many destinations also stop at other bus and coach stops throughout the city centre and the surrounding suburbs. Headington Road is one of the most popular of these subsidiary bus and coach stops.

Why travel by coach to Oxford?

Travelling by coach to Oxford enables passengers to arrive in the very centre of the city. The main coach station is closer to many of the city's main attractions than the railway station, which lies around half a mile further out. Additionally, the frequency of coach and bus services into the city ensure there is plenty of choice of departure and arrival times for passengers. The Oxford Tube is particularly convenient, with services that run 24 hours per day.

Before you travel to Oxford by coach - good to know!

Although Gloucester Green bus station provides toilets and refreshment facilities for passengers, its location in central Oxford means that it is easy to reach a wide variety of shops, restaurants, museums and, of course, many of the colleges of the University of Oxford. For something rather different, Blackwells on nearby Broad Street is the location of the Norrington Room, an enormous underground room that has the distinction of being the world's largest room of books for sale. As well as taxis, an extensive network of local buses provides road transport for those looking to travel beyond the city centre, and there are also several cycle hire outlets.

About Oxford

Oxford, which lies on the Thames and Cherwell Rivers, is the oldest university city in the UK. As many as 7 million people visit Oxford to see its famous, prestigious university campuses and beautiful architecture dating back to the 12th century. The Medieval churches and college buildings, many of which can be visited, are often referred to as Oxford's 'Dreaming Spires'. World famous museums, such as the Ashmolean and the Pitt Rivers have collections of archaeology, historic artefacts and art from around the globe.
Being a university town, Oxford has a lively nightlife, with many bars as well as restaurants and cafés for all budgets. The town centre has mainly been pedestrianised; the council would like everyone to use to Park and Ride and avoid travelling through the one-way city centre which can get very busy. This means travelling by coach to Oxford is often much more convenient and stress-free than taking the car and having to park it.
The area of Jericho is comparable to Shoreditch in London, with art, cafés and cobbled streets as well as striking Victorian town houses. The University of Oxford Botanical Gardens is well-worth a visit and the imposing Blenheim Palace, set in the picturesque town of Woodstock, is just a short drive away. Dedicated shoppers will find plenty to buy at the nearby Bicester Outlet Village with discounted designer shops line a charming pedestrianised street.
