Exit the M40 at Junction 8 onto the A40 and follow signs for Oxford. There are several car parks in the city centre, so follow the signs.

Driving to Oxford from London: Car Hire

You don't need to rent a car just to go to Oxford for the day as the bus and train services are frequent, quick and inexpensive. If you have a rental car already then the drive out to Oxford is straightforward, and would enable you to explore the nearby Cotswolds, but don't hire a car just to go to Oxford on its own.
