Oxford is centrally located in England and is easily accessible from many parts of the country. We recommend public transport as car parking is difficult, and certain roads in central Oxford are closed to private cars. Oxford is served by many coaches, buses, and trains.
All times and fares below are approximate. Prices are as of January 2003.
British Rail was privatised some years ago and there are many independent rail services. This has led to some confusion in pricing. You can obtain discounts by booking in advance.
1) Adult return: lowest fare ('supersaver' and other advance bought tickets).
Note that some services are direct; some are not and you may have to change.
