How to Get to Oxford

First Great Western, CrossCountry Rail and Chiltern Railways all provide services to and from Reading. There are direct links with London Paddington, Reading, Worcester, Manchester, Southampton and Birmingham as well as local suburban stations.

How to Get Around Oxford

The Oxford Bus Company and Stagecoach operate local routes from the rail station, St Giles and St Aldates. There are many taxi ranks throughout the city. Much of the centre is pedestrianised and the majority of students cycle around Oxford, sharing the city centre with pedestrians. Other roads have cycle lanes and there are many bike parks available. Driving into central Oxford is not advisable as streets are narrow, with confusing one-way systems and parking spaces are heavily restricted. There is a large multi-storey car park to the south of the city as well as five park and rides around the periphery of town.
