Transport and parking
Delegates should make their own travel arrangements. There is no parking available to delegates at the venue, other than for blue badgeholders. If you are coming by car it would be best to use one of the city's Park & Ride facilities http://www.parkandride.net/oxford/html/oxford_parkandride.html. You can pay to park for a maximum of 72 hours. Parking in the city centre is limited, for short periods only, and expensive.
For local taxis we recommend 001 Cars (01865 24000) and Royal Cars (01865 777333).
There are very good bus links from Heathrow (departing every 20 minutes) and Gatwick (departing hourly) airports to Oxford and return.
Journey times from Heathrow are approximately 1.5 hours and from Gatwick 2.5 hours but allow more time if traveling during rush hour. The bus station is a 15-minute walk from the conference venue. You can also get off the bus at the 'Queen's Lane' stop (ask the driver when you get on the bus) on High Street opposite Queen’s College, which is a 10-minute walk from St Catherine's.
There is also a good train link directly between Oxford Station and Birmingham International Airport. It takes about 1 hour. More info and tickets at thetrainline.com/.
Casual and informal for the entire meeting including dinner.
The weather in Oxford at the end of June is variable. The average daytime temperature is c. 20°C but it's always a good idea to bring an umbrella!
