Flights: Delegates are requested to book their own flights and transfers to and from Oxford. We would suggest booking your flights in and out of London Heathrow (LHR) or London Gatwick (LGW) as both airports have bus and train transport links to Oxford.

Once you have collected your baggage please follow the signs to the central bus station. You will need to purchase a period return ticket, which allows a return within three months. You can pay with Euros or US Dollars for the tickets but only notes are accepted (no coins). Alternatively you can purchase tickets at least 36 hours in advance via link . Take the bus to the end stop Gloucester Green.
