London is only a skip, hop and a jump away from Oxford.
To get to London, there are two regular coach services run by The Oxford Bus Company (the X90 coach) and Stagecoach (Oxford Tube). The journey takes between 90 and 120 minutes depending on the traffic and discounted tickets are available, especially if booked in advance and in bulk. Both leave from Gloucester Green Bus Station, Queen’s Lane on the High Street, St Clement’s and numerous other stops.
The alternative route to London is to use the train, either Oxford Station (which goes to Paddington Station) or Oxford Parkway north of Oxford (which goes to Marylebone). The fast trains to London take one hour and are reasonably priced when purchased in advance from the station or online. Those aged 16–25 or registered as a full-time student are eligible for the 16–25 Railcard, which can be purchased from the station or online and entitles the holder receive 1/3 off most standard class rail tickets. Mature students are eligible for railcards too.
Travel to airports or Cambridge
London Heathrow International Airport and Gatwick Airport are linked to Oxford by The Airline coach service, which operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week from many of the same bus stops as the X90 and the Oxford Tube. There are also coach services to Cambridge, and some coaches stop at Luton and Stansted Airports.
