By car

There is unfortunately very little parking in central Oxford and being a medievil city is not well suited to cars (hence the association with bicycles). If you are to drive we recomend you park at a multistory car park. However you can find below directions straight to the conference.

- From London and the East

Leave the M40 motorway at Junction 8 signposted Oxford A40. Continue for approximately 5 miles; the A40 meets the Green Road roundabout, go straight across, following signs for Headington and the City Centre; continue straight on for 2 miles through Headington until you reach another roundabout - The Plain - and take the last exit. Cross Magdalen Bridge, and at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street and take the right into Parks Road at the T-junction with traffic lights. You will find the museum on your right and Keble College to your left. Further down this road you will find a right hand turn into Norham Gardens and Lady Margaret Hall is at the end of this road.

- From the South

Leave the A34 at the first Oxford exit. At the roundabouts follow signs for the city centre. Pass the Park & Ride on your left, take a right at the second set of traffic lights into Donnington Bridge Road. At the lights turn left, continue straight on until you reach a roundabout - The Plain. Go straight over and cross Magdalen Bridge; at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street and take the right into Parks Road at the T-junction with traffic lights. You will find the museum on your right and Keble College to your left. Further down this road you will find a right hand turn into Norham Gardens and Lady Margaret Hall is at the end of this road.

- From the North

Leave the M40 at Junction 9, following signs for Oxford A34. Continue for approximately 8 miles, then take the Oxford/ Cheltenham exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout take the second exit. At the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit along the A40, following signs to M40 London. At the next roundabout take the right exit, following signs for Summertown and the City Centre. Continue for approximately 2 miles, then turn left into Parks Rd (opposite church). A second left will take you onto Norham Gardens for Lady Margaret Hall. Continuing straight on you will see the Park and Museum on the left and Keble college on your right.

From the West

We recommend that visitors bypass the City and approach from the North. Leave the M4 at Junction 15 and follow signs for Oxford A420. Continue along the A420 for approximately 30 miles. Rather than continue through the western side of the City, at the A34 interchange, head north following signs for M40 but leave at the next exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout follow signs to City Centre, passing the services and Park & Ride; at the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit. From here follow directions as from the North. For those approaching on the A40,cross straight over the Wolvercote roundabout and follow the directions as from the North

On foot

From the City Centre

The City Centre to the conference will take between 15 and 20 minutes. Most local bus stops are located on Cornmarket and Queen Street, and national buses arrive at Gloucester Green Bus Station on George Street. From any of these, you should make your way to Broad Street (opposite Debenhams). Continue to the end of Broad Street, (past the Sheldonian Theatre on the right). At the traffic lights turn right. After a short walk you will find the museum on your right and Keble on your left. Lady Margaret Hall can be found by continuing past the park on your right and turning right onto Norham Gardens.

From the Train Station

Taxis are recommended from the station, but if you are happy with a 30 minute walk, turn left as you leave the station area. The Royal Oxford Hotel is directly in front of you; keep left and walk along Hythe Bridge Street, (past Blackwells Bookshop on the left). At the end walk straight across into George Street. At the end of George Street Debenhams Store is on the left - from here walk straight over into Broad Street and follow the directions as from the City Centre.
