Oxford is about 60 miles (90 kms) northwest of London and has excellent road and national rail links. Regular coach services connect Oxford with the capital and also with Heathrow, Gatwick and Luton airports.

From London airports

London Heathrow International Airport, and Gatwick Airport are linked to Oxford by The Airline coach company, which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Heathrow is the closest international airport to Oxford. Stansted Airport is linked to Oxford by the National Express 757, which runs approximately every two hours.

Bus

In our opinion, the easiest and cheapest way to get to Oxford is to take a bus from the airport that comes straight to the city. Buses run by The Airline Physiology 2011 leave Heathrow approximately every 20 minutes, and Gatwick every hour.

From Heathrow, a return ticket costs approximately £19 and takes approximately 80 minutes from terminals 1,2,and 3, and 100 minutes from terminal 5 (for terminal 4 you will need to take the free inter-terminal train to either terminal 5 or central bus station).

From Gatwick, a return ticket costs approximately £27 and takes approximately 120 minutes. The buses make a few stops once they reach Oxford, and if you're looking to get off at the main bus station, tell the driver you want to go to Gloucester Green.

Train

The Heathrow Express leaves every 15 minutes, costing around £20 for a single trip, and takes approximately 15 minutes. For more information, please visit: www.heathrowexpress.com Physiology 2011.

Trains arrive at London Paddington where you can change and take the train to Oxford.  Trains from London leave Paddington every half hour, costing around £20 for a single trip, and takes approximately one hour. For national rail inquiries, call 08457 48 49 50 or visit their website. Note: cheap tickets can be purchased in advance for as little as £10 return. Check the website of contact National Rail Physiology 2011 for details.

Taxi

Though we don't recommend it, it is possible to take a standard taxi from the airport to Oxford (or, of course, from Oxford to the airport). It costs approximately £55 to/from Heathrow, and £90 to/from Gatwick, not including tip.

From London

Bus

The Oxford Tube and the Oxford Espress both leave London's Victoria Station every 12-20 minutes, making stops at Marble Arch, Baker Street, Notting Hill Gate, and Shepherd's Bush before heading to Oxford's Gloucester Green. Tickets cost £16 if you're returning the next day, or £20 if you're returning within 3 months. Travel time is approximately 100 minutes during off-peak times.
