Travelling to Headington by rail

Fast trains from London to Oxford leave from Paddington Station.

Oxford Railway station lies to the west of the city, so you will need to take either a taxi or a bus from Oxford station to Headington. There are two direct bus services: the Arriva 280 leaves the station forecourt half-hourly for Headington, and the Park & Ride (which only calls at the three main Headington stops) runs every 10 minutes from the road beside the station.

If you are travelling from Heathrow to Oxford, you have to take a train into central London and another one back to Oxford. The fast bus service is recommended instead.
