| Traveling by Bus.
The X5 (Oxford-Cambridge service) goes
from the Gloucester Green Bus Station (bay 12) and will stop at the
Skimmingdish Lane - Buckingham Road roundabout; right outside the
airfield! Ask the driver for the 'Caversfield' Stop. The service is
generally very quick and runs 7 days a week, every 30 minutes, including
Sunday's and Bank Holidays. See the X5
time table (pdf).
| Traveling by Rail.
Bicester is served by two railway stations; Bicester North (Chiltern
London and Birmingham) and Bicester Town (Chiltern
Railways Oxford - Bicester line). The nearest station to the airfield
is Bicester North and is about a 15 minute walk to the airfield. Bicester
Town however, has a direct railway line from Oxford, is a journey
of about 25 minutes but is about 2 miles from the airfield. The service
has improved recently with more trains running between Oxford and
Bicester, with the off-peak service (after 9.am) only costing £2.50
return! Both stations are served by taxis or local buses.
Traveling by Road.
From Oxford, go via the Banbury road towards Kidlington and take the A34 north-east to Bicester. At Bicester continue straight on following sign posts to Buckingham. The airfield is on the outskirts of Bicester as you leave the town towards Buckingham. See the map for more information.
From the North or the South: Take the (M40 or A34) to Junction 9 of the M40. Take the A41 north-east to Bicester, approximately 3 miles. Stay on the main road through the town and keep going straight on. You will pass a fire station, a police station magistrates court and sports centre all on your left, and you will eventually pass through a set of traffic lights. After the lights you approach a mini roundabout, take the second exit, Buckingham Road, to Buckingham. After one mile there is another roundabout with signposts pointing straight on for Buckingham (A4421) or a right turn to Aylesbury (also A4421).. Turn right onto the A4421 towards Aylesbury. The airfield entrance is one hundred yards on the left.
From the East (A41 from Aylesbury) at the first roundabout by the Army storage depot, take the third exit onto the Bicester by-pass towards Buckingham (A4421). Stay on this road, across 2 more roundabouts, you will pass some large storage warehouses on the left and cross a railway crossing. Then at the next roundabout turn left. Then at another roundabout turn right onto Skimmingdish Lane (A4421) towards Buckingham. Half a mile along this road the airfield is on the right. You will see the airfield and the hangars before you reach the entrance gate on your right.
From the North East (A4421/ A421 from Buckingham, Milton Keynes, Northampton) head towards Bicester. The first appearance of the airfield will be of the old hangars on the left and airfield itself just before a roundabout. As you approach the roundabout, the old RAF base entrance will appear on the left. Ignore this! At the roundabout, turn left onto Skimmingdish Lane towards Aylesbury (still the A4421) and one hundred yards upon the left is Bicester airfield entrance.
