Parking is difficult in Oxford, so we encourage conference organisers to ask their delegates to travel to Oxford by rail or coach. On-street parking is severely restricted in the City Centre and in the roads surrounding the College. We encourage those wishing to bring cars to ‘park-and-ride’.
From London and the East
Leave the M40 motorway at Junction 8 sign posted Oxford A40. Continue for approximately 5 miles; the A40 meets the Green Road roundabout, go straight across, following signs for Headington and the City Centre; continue straight on for 2 miles through Headington until you reach another roundabout - The Plain - and take the last exit. Cross Magdalen Bridge, and at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street. Follow the road around past the New College Sportsground (on your right); the road will then bear left, take the next left into Mansfield Road. New College lies at the end of Mansfield Road on Holywell Street.
From the South
Leave the A34 at the first Oxford exit. At the roundabouts follow signs for the city centre. Pass the Park & Ride on your left, take a right at the second set of traffic lights into Donnington Bridge Road. At the lights turn left, continue straight on until you reach a roundabout - The Plain - and take the last exit. Cross Magdalen Bridge, and at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street. Follow the road around past the New College Sports ground (on your right); the road will then bear left, take the next left into Mansfield Road. New College lies at the end of Mansfield Road on Holywell Street.
From the North
Leave the M40 at Junction 9, following signs for Oxford A34. Continue for approximately 8 miles, then take the Oxford/ Cheltenham exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout take the second exit. At the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit along the A40, following signs to M40 London. At the next roundabout take the right exit, following signs for Summertown and the City Centre. Continue for approximately 2 miles, then turn left into Parks Rd (opposite church). Pass the Park and Museum on the left, and take the next left into South Parks Road. Take the first right into Mansfield Road. New College lies at the end of Mansfield Road on Holywell Street.
From the West
We recommend that you bypass the City and approach from the North. Leave the M4 at Junction 15 and follow signs for Oxford A420. Continue along the A420 for approximately 30 miles. Rather than continue through the western side of the City, at the A34 interchange, head north following signs for M40 but leave at the next exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout follow signs to City Centre, passing the services and Park & Ride; at the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit. From here follow directions as from the North. For those approaching on the A40, cross straight over the Wolvercote roundabout and follow the directions as from the North.
On foot from the City Centre
The City Centre to New College will take between 5-10 minutes. Most local bus stops are located on Cornmarket and Queen Street, and national buses arrive at Gloucester Green Bus Station on George Street. From any of these, you should make your way to Broad Street (opposite Debenhams). Continue to the end of Broad Street, (past the Sheldonian Theatre on the right). At the traffic lights go straight on into Holywell Street. New College is on your right, just past the Mansfield Road junction.
On foot from the Train Station
Taxis are recommended from the station, but if you are happy with a 20-30 minute walk, turn left as you leave the station area. The Royal Oxford Hotel is directly in front of you; keep left and walk along Hythe Bridge Street. At the end walk straight across into George Street. At the end of George Street the Debenhams Store is on the left - from here walk straight over into Broad Street and follow the directions as from the City Centre.
