By train or bus:

There is an excellent train and bus service to Oxford from anywhere in the UK. However, there is a very limited local bus service to Boars Hill. 

Bus nos. 4 and 4B which leave Oxford City Centre at Castle Street at 08 mins and 38 mins past the hour respectively (and Frideswide Square opposite the railway station - 5 mins later) for Abingdon pass by Wootton (bus stop at Sandleigh Road). Then a walk uphill from the bus stop will take you to the Carmelite Priory.  (Bus no. 44 is no longer in operation.)

If you choose to take this route, please allow ample time. The bus journey takes about 26 minutes and the walk to the priory takes about 35 minutes.

For up-to-date information of the bus service, please check www.oxfordbus.co.uk


By taxi:

If you wish to take taxi from the train or bus station, we have a special arrangement with Royal Cars. Pre-booking is necessary on 01865 777 333. Youlbury Scout Camp is a good landmark for taxi drivers. The Carmelite Priory is just 300 yards past the main entrance to the camp.
