TRAVEL

By Train: The Ioannou Centre is approx. 10 minutes' walk from Oxford train station.

By Bus: The bus station is approx. 5 minuts' walk.

By Car: Parking within the city centre is limited (and expensive): if you are arriving by car we strongly advise using the Park & Ride service. Fast and frequent services link 5 car parks adjacent to the ring road with the city centre (see HERE for locations and details).

ACCESSIBILITY

The Ioannou Centre is largely accessible, and there are lifts to all floors, however there are some narrow doorways which could make it difficult for people using wheechairs to access some areas (More Information).

There is no departmental parking but there are disabled spaces and pay and display nearby along St Giles.

ACCOMMODATION

The Faculty is not able to provide or arrange accommodation for attendees: it is the individual responsibility of the attendee to organise and cover the costs of accommodation. However most colleges will have some B&B accommodation available and so I’d recommend looking at the collegiate B&B accommodation site and call individual colleges for more info if required (http://conference-oxford.com/). Most are reasonably priced and centrally-located.

Like most major cities, there are also of various budget hotels and other B&Bs in Oxford which may be able to provide you with what you require.

WHILE IN OXFORD ...

Oxford is a beautiful city of stunning architecture, history, and culture. You'll find ancient and modern colleges, fascinating museums and galleries, and plenty of parks, gardens, and green spaces in which to relax. Plus, the city centre is small enough to cover on foot, and only a few minutes walk from the main rail and coach stations.

While you are in Oxford please do explore the brilliant variety of Classics-related things the city has to offer.
