By car

Getting to Oxford is not difficult - once you reach Oxford there are several important things to realise -
  • The City centre has traffic restriction which mean that it is best avoided unless you are familiar with it
  • The Research Laboratory has very limited parking which must be booked in advance.
  • Using the "Park and Ride" from the ring-road is the best option unless you have equipment/objects which you can not carry.
  • Make yourself aware of the location of City Centre car parks in advance

By train

The Research Laboratory is about  a mile from the railway station.

By coach from London

The most convenient stop is Queen Street. From there it is a short walk towards South Parks Road.

Park and Ride

The most covenient Park & Ride route is from the Pear Tree park and ride, North of the city - buses stop on St. Giles, leaving only a short walk to South Parks Road.
You may also consider the possiblilty of Park and Cycle-Ride – parking at Park and Ride is now free.
