CUWiP 2015, Oxford, UK

Please ask your department Chair or course administrator about the possibility of funding your travel to and from the conference. While we do have a small amount of travel funding available, this is very limited.

The Clarendon Laboratory is marked on the map below, along with Keble College, St Anne's College, the train station, bus station, and the second physics department building (the Denys Wilkinson Building). Walking routes are shown from the train station and bus station to the Clarendon Laboratory, as well as from the Clarendon Laboratory to St Anne's College.

By Rail

Regular train services run from London, Birmingham, Manchester and Reading, among others. Oxford train station is about a mile from the Clarendon Laboratory (walking route shown on map in black). The city line 2A bus service runs from the station to the department Monday to Saturday. The stop is on Banbury Road at the intersection with Keble Road (opposite the Denys Wilkinson Building, marked on the map).

By Coach

There are two coach services that operate from London: one leaves from Victoria Coach Station every 15 minutes on weekdays (Oxford X90); the other, from Grovesnor Gardens by Victoria Railway Station, runs every 10 minutes at peak times and operates a 24/7 service (Oxford Tube). The Oxford bus station (marked on the map) is about half a mile from the department (walking route is shown in purple). There is also a coach service from Cambridge (X5 via Milton Keynes) and frequent coaches from Heathrow and Gatwick, as well as many national coach services, all of which also come into the Oxford bus station.

By Car

The M40 motorway runs very close to Oxford on the north-east side and links with the M1, M4, M5 and M25. If you approach Oxford from the east on the M40 you should leave at junction 8, or from the north at junction 9. Those travelling on the M4 should get off at junction 13, Newbury, and take the A34 north to Oxford.

Parking is difficult in Oxford city centre. There is some on-street parking available on Keble Road, which is controlled by a pay-and-display scheme with a maximum stay of two hours. However, Oxford is well served by 5 park-and-ride sites on the outskirts of the city with quick bus services to the city centre. The police advise against leaving cars at these sites overnight.
