When to go

This part of the country is beautiful whatever the season, but it can get a bit tourist-heavy during the summer. And keep away from Henley in the first weekend of July – the Regatta’s on, and the place will be packed.

Getting there

  • Planes

    London's Heathrow airport is about an hour away from Oxford by car | Gatwick a little further – about 90 minutes.
  • Trains

    Trains run to Oxford from London Paddington every 20 minutes during the day. They’re almost as frequent in the evenings; the journey takes about an hour. There are no direct services from Heathrow or Gatwick, but travelling via London, you’ll still be in Oxfordshire within two hours.
  • Automobiles

    Oxford’s an hour west of London along the M40, and 90 minutes from Bristol via the M4 and A420.
  • Taxis

    Even outside Oxford train station, it can be hard to find a cab. Ask your hotel for details of a good local company and book ahead.
