Travel information

Tips for reaching Oxford from the nearby airports

The most convenient airport to reach Oxford is Birmingham, followed by Heathrow, Luton, and Gatwick. 

From Birmingham airport, the fastest option is the train (1h).

From Heathrow, the fastest option is the Airline bus (1.5 hrs), which takes you directly to Oxford. You can get on at either the main bus station at Heathrow, or at Terminal 5.

From Luton, the best option is to take the National Express bus (2 hrs) directly to Oxford.

From Gatwick, the best option is again the Airline bus (2.5 hrs).

For all bus journeys, you should get off at Gloucester Green (name of the main bus station in Oxford). If you are flying back from the same airport, you should buy a return ticket, as the savings can be substantial.

Alternatively, you can take the train from the last three airports, but it is not significantly faster and you have to change at least once.

If you really want to save every pound, it can sometimes be cheaper to book an Easybus to London (a long time in advance tickets can be as low as £2.5) and take the Oxford Tube bus to Oxford (£14 for student's return). However, this will be a long and tiring journey.

Stansted airport is not recommended, because there is no direct connection to Oxford, but of course you can go via London.
