The closest major city to Oxford is London. Oxford is easy to get to, and can be reached by coach, train, or car.

If you are travelling by plane the simplest (and cheapest) way to get to Oxford is to take a bus called from the airport into Oxford’s central station. The Airline services buses from Heathrow about every 30 minutes, cost £27 return and take approximately 90 minutes from Terminals 1,2,and 3, and 80 minutes from Terminal 5 (British Airways only; for Terminal 4 you will need to take the free inter-terminal train to either Terminal 5 or central bus station). Heathrow is the quickest bus connection to Oxford, but there are connections from all London’s airports.

The Airline also services buses from Gatwick every hour. This trip costs £37 return and takes approximately 120-150 minutes.

National Express also services routes from Luton and Stanstead airports into Oxford.
