Oxford Park and Ride


Park and Ride BusIf you are driving to Oxford and planning to stay for the day then the cheapest places to park are at one of the Oxford Park and Ride services. You will pay 2.00 GBP a day for parking and you also have to pay 2.70 GBP return for the bus into Oxford, although if you are feeling fit you can walk from the Seacourt and Redbridge sites to the city centre in about 30 minutes.


There are 5 Park and Ride services located on the Oxford ring road to the North, South, East and West. You can download a pdf Oxford Park & Ride Timetable by clicking the link.


If you are arriving from the North (Birmingham direction) then use either the Pear Tree (OX2 8JD) or Water Eaton (OX2 8HA) Park and Rides. If you are arriving from the East (London direction) then use the Thornhill (OX3 8DP) Park and Ride. If you are arriving from the South (Newbury direction) then use the Redbridge (OX1 4XG) Park and Ride. If you are arriving from the West (Swindon direction) then use the Seacourt Park and Ride (OX2 0HP).


Please note that if you wish to leave your car overnight we would recommend the Thornhill Park and Ride as it has the best security. For more secure overnight parking use Gloucester Green underground car park from 5 GBP per night in the city centre.

Please note if you are arriving in a camper van or other high sided vehicle you need to use Redbridge Park and Ride as it has a dedicated area for high sided vehicles which is accessed via the entrance to the Kitchen and Bathroom showroom, NOT the main entrance.
