Accessible & Well Connected
GREEN TRAVEL POLICY
We have a Green Travel Plan, developed in association with Oxford City Council, which encourages non-car modes of transport wherever possible. The train station and local bus stops are only 5 to 10 minutes’ walk away, with a convenient park-and-ride service at various points around the city. We do have limited on-site parking available, up to a maximum of 60 vehicles. For larger events, the number of delegate cars has therefore to be restricted. We also have a number of cycle stands to accommodate up to 132 bicycles.
The King’s Centre provides undercover and secure bicycle racks for visitors. If you cycle round Oxford or would like to bring your bike on the train.

Botley Road temporary closure at the Rail Bridge
Botley Road is temporarily closed at the railway bridge for major structural work on the bridge until October 2024. However, this does not directly affect access to The King’s Centre as traffic coming along Botley Road from the A34 can still easily get into Osney Mead. Pedestrians and cyclists coming from Oxford city and the railway station will continue to have access throughout the work.
