Travel and Maps

To and from the airport:

There is a frequent direct coach service (The Airline) linking Oxford to Heathrow & Gatwick airports - tickets can be bought on-line or by cash when boarding.

  • At Heathrow, go to the Central Bus Station (T1/T3) or Airline coach stop (T5).
  • If arriving at Heathrow T4, take the (free) bus to T5 and proceed as above.
  • From Gatwick the journey is longer and the frequency is less.
  • It is not a good idea to fly to Luton or Stansted airports as it can take several hours to get to Oxford (best option is to take a coach to Heathrow and proceed as above).

Note that in Oxford the coach stops on the High Street at "Queen's Lane" which is a short walk to Merton College (down Logic Lane; the gap in the buildings shown in the photo below) - *you must tell the driver that you will get off here when your luggage is stowed at the airport*.

To and from London:

Two services operate from London: one leaves from Victoria Coach Station every 15 minutes during weekdays (Oxford X90); the other from Grosvenor Gardens by Victoria Railway Station every 10 minutes at peak times (Oxford Tube). Both services pick up at Marble Arch. Once in Oxford, proceed as above.
