The simplest way to get into central Oxford is by using the Park and Ride system. There are five locations and for detailed maps of each showing the routes go to: scroll down and you will find pdf maps for each route. The buses run every 8-10 minutes. When you park your car, you need to pay £2 for parking. You will be asked to enter your car’s registration number into the meter and there is no need to put the ticket in the windscreen. The buses themselves normally carry free map leaflets showing the stops for each route.

Note: There are often road works in Oxford at present which may delay your journey and may sometimes affect the P&R routes.  

The main railway station is about 0.8 miles from the Meeting House. You can either walk (16 min) or catch a bus. The best option is the No 500 to Water Eaton. Get on at stop R1 and off at C3 Magdalen Street (3 stops – the stop is opposite the St Mary Magdalen Church) and then a 3 min walk.  

The Water Eaton Park and Ride is very close to Oxford Parkway station. 

The bus station in Oxford is also a convenient way of getting to the city. 

The entrance to the Quaker’s Meeting House is from St Giles and there will be someone in the reception area to collect the money. It is then a short walk past a lawn to get to the room where our meeting will take place. The main street door needs to be kept locked when the reception area is unattended so anyone arriving after the AGM has started (i.e. after 2.00pm) will need to call mobile number 07779005264 to be let in. Also, when leaving, please make sure the door is firmly closed behind you.
