By Air

Oxford is well connected to Heathrow and Gatwick airports.

Heathrow Airport served by The Airline bus service (frequent buses, takes around 90 minutes) and National Rail (more expensive, via the Heathrow Express to the centre of London)

Gatwick Airport served by The Airline bus service (frequent buses, takes about 2½ hours) and National Rail (most trains change at Reading station)

London's other airports (Luton, Stansted and London City) are less well-connected to Oxford: reliable travel directions can be found here.

By Rail

Oxford is served by Oxford Central Station and Oxford Parkway Station.

See National Rail enquiries or TheTrainLine for information on train times and fares. Note that train tickets can be substantially cheaper if purchased 2 weeks in advance. Both stations are well served by local Oxford buses.

Oxford Central Station is a 15-minute walk or short cab ride from St. Anne's College; Oxford Parkway station is further away but well connected to St. Anne's College by bus and taxi.

If you are coming by Eurostar, you'll come in to London St Pancras Station. From there, you need to take the Tube to Paddington Station, and from there you can get a train to Oxford. The connections are pretty well signposted and the trains are frequent. Be sure to book the London-Oxford train tickets in advance (see above) for cheapest fares.

By coach

Express coach services run between Oxford and London (1-1½ hours), London Heathrow, Birmingham and other destinations nationwide.

The Coach Station at Gloucester Green is approximately a 15 minutes walk from St. Anne's College.
