London to Oxford
by Train

Going from London to Oxford by train is quick and easy. There are several trains every hour from Paddington Station in London, and the journey time is about one hour. With about half the trains you need to change trains at Reading, but it doesn't make much difference to the total journey time.

If you want to be sure and get a train that takes you straight to Oxford from London without the bother of changing, check the timetable first (see the links below).

The main disadvantage of the train compared to the bus from London to Oxford is the cost. The train costs in the region of three times the price of the bus, based on average fares.

There are also direct trains on the Chiltern Railway between London Marylebone Station and Oxford Parkway. The journey time here is also about an hour, and the trains stop at Bicester Village Station, to enable you to easily visit the hugely popular shopping outlet.

Oxford Railway Station

The Oxford train station is at Park End Street, an easy 10-minute walk into the city centre.
