Summertown is a picturesque area with independent restaurants, charming cafes, and boutique shops within walking distance. Stroll through the beautiful Port Meadow area along the River Thames and head into the center of Oxford just minutes away by bus. Based on the Woodstock Road access to Oxford City Centre is easy via the regular buses which stop directly outside the property. To walk, the town centre is 1.2 miles and takes approximately 20 minutes. Taxi's come quickly and cost about £5. We recommend 001 Taxis. Summertown and all its amenities are very close and easily accessible on foot. We are well place for a trip to the very popular Bicester Village Outlet Centre or adventures in the Cotswolds including Blenheim Palace, buses run regularly from the Woodstock and Banbury Roads. TRAVEL / PARKING TRAIN Trains to Oxford from London leave from both London Paddington and London Marylebone. Two stations serve the town; Oxford Town and Oxford Parkway. If you arrive at Oxford Town the S3 bus (Stop R5) will bring you directly to the apartment. Busses leave on the hour and every 20 minutes in the day. Get off at Beech Croft Road - we are directly opposite the stop. If you arrive at Oxford Parkway there are regular buses to the Banbury road (one block away), or about £9 in a taxi. Personally we prefer the new Marylebone train and get off at Parkway. BUS The 'Oxford Tube' or 'C90' provide an excellent bus service, every 10 minutes, day and night, to and from London and is cheaper than the train - about £12 return. The quickest way to the apartment is to get off at Thornhill and take a taxi (book taxi from bus, 001 or A1 Taxies are good). Alternatively you can stay on the bus into town, Gloucester Green, and then get a bus up the Woodstock Road (book this exrtra bus ticket when you book your Oxford Tube ticket and they'll include it in the price). PARKING Parking in Oxford is extremely difficult. For small/medium cars we can make parking at the property available via prior arrangement. Alternatively we can give you local parking permits. Free overnight parking is available at the top of Bainton Road (opposite) from 2pm to 10am Mon-Sat and all day on Sunday.
