About the station 

One of England’s true gems to visit for a day trip or quiet weekend, Oxford provides the quintessential British college town experience. Americans may balk at that concept, but Oxford is hardly a city overrun by fraternities and football tailgating (more on that later). Oxford is home to one of the most storied universities in the world, and its many colleges and libraries offer travelers a once-in-a-lifetime architectural experience.

Some of the most revered historic buildings in the world can be seen in a day or two when you’re poking around central Oxford. The iconic Oxford Castle, Bodleian Library, Radcliffe Camera, and Christ Church College can all be seen in a day. You’ll also be able to soak in the history of some of the greatest writers in English history because you’ll be strolling along the same paths as J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. To call it idyllic might be an understatement, with the picturesque alleys and centuries-old university buildings surrounded by leafy parks.

The vast majority of travelers arrive in Oxford via train from London or Birmingham. More often than not, they’ll step off the train at Oxford Railway Station and immediately be engulfed in the history and beauty of the city. Situated just west of the university and city center, Oxford Railway Station provides immediate access to the top landmarks and attractions. 

Operated by Great Western Railway, Oxford Railway Station accepts long-distance and regional trains from major transportation hubs like London Paddington and Marylebone along with nearby connections with Birmingham and beyond. 

Can I store luggage at Oxford Train Station?

Unfortunately, there are no official Oxford Train Station luggage storage facilities onsite. This is a shame, given how close the train station is to most of Oxford’s top landmarks. Fortunately, there are multiple Oxford luggage storage services like Bounce operating facilities throughout the city center.

Do British train stations have luggage lockers? 

It really depends on the train station. Major transportation hubs in London (like Paddington and King’s Cross) will have lockers or a left luggage office, but this doesn't apply to the smaller stations in cities like Oxford.  

Does Oxford have 2 train stations?

The main transportation hub in the city is Oxford Railway Station, which is situated in the city center and operated by Great Western Railway. It has direct service to London Paddington with multiple trains every hour. There’s also the newer Oxford Parkway Train Station located on the north side of the city. It’s operated by Chiltern Railways and offers a regular service to London Marylebone. 

What are the best ways to store your luggage in Oxford? 

You’ll have a few secure luggage storage options if you need to stash the bags for a few hours on a travel day. Storing luggage with your hotel is always an option, but it might not be convenient if your accommodations are out of the way. Renting a storage locker at a transportation facility is sometimes an option, just not in Oxford. The Bounce luggage storage service is the most trusted source serving the Oxford market. With Bounce, you can use our intuitive mobile app to find and book luggage storage while you’re planning your trip or even on the go. Unlike luggage lockers, a service like Bounce provides an easy experience, with 24/7 mobile support and other useful functions. 

Things to do near Oxford Train Station

Oxford Castle and Prison 

To break up all the monotony of university buildings and libraries, take a quick stroll over to the imposing medieval castle safeguarding Oxford’s city center. Built by none other than William the Conqueror in 1071 to defend the city, this castle is Oxford’s oldest building. The commanding St. George’s Tower can be seen from around the city, so it’s easy to find this place. You can take a tour of the castle, with costumed guides (who likely trained as thespians at one time or another) to learn about its history as a one-time prison during the English Civil War. You’ll be able to tour the numerous towers and former jail cells in the truly ominous dungeon. 

Ashmolean Museum 

It makes sense that Britain’s oldest public museum would be situated in Oxford, given the unparalleled academic status of the city and university. Dating back to the 17th century when Elias Ashmole compiled a collection of artifacts and relics accrued by travelers associated with the university. You’ll find thousands of works of art and artifacts spanning the globe. From Renaissance works from Italy to the frescoes from Ancient Greece’s Palace of Knossos, the quality (not necessarily the quantity as it’s not the largest institution) is what sets the Ashmolean Museum apart. 

Ashmolean Museum bag policy 

There aren’t specific item dimensions mandated by the museum’s bag policy, but it is suggested that you leave all larger items elsewhere before heading inside. There are small lockers available to rent with a non-refundable £1 coin. These lockers are pretty small and not intended for large suitcases or roller bags. Larger items like umbrellas and strollers can be left at the entrance (at the visitor’s own risk). 

St Mary’s Passage 

One of the iconic landmarks you can simply walk through, this historic passage has been used by some of Britain’s greatest thinkers and writers, but this place has a special role in the legend of C.S. Lewis. There’s a doorway adorned with wooden features that are rumored to have inspired the magical wardrobe door that led to the mythical lands in the Chronicles of Narnia books. Upon closer inspection, it absolutely makes sense. There are two golden fawns and a lion’s head flanking the passage along with other imagery (the eerie face of the Green Man) throughout the passage. You’ll likely use this passage without even knowing it, as it leads to the Radcliffe Camera, which is easily the most Instagrammed place in Oxford, and the popular City Arms Pub. 

Radcliffe Camera 

Google Oxford and you’ll almost immediately see a picture of this iconic university building. Built in the 18th century, this library is a masterpiece and the pinnacle of the Palladian architectural style. With distinctive red brick, golden columns, and an unmissable dome (third-largest in the UK), it’s impossible to deny this perfectly symmetrical circular building is a delight to look at. You can also tour the interior to learn about how it was designed and used. Guided tours take about 90 minutes. It’s also a proper reading room, as it’s attached to the Bodleian Library, but you’ll need to be on a tour to access it. Surely this is the most stately place imaginable to crack a copy of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe and read for a few hours. 

 Airport travel from Oxford Train Station

The vast majority of travelers head to Oxford from London for either a quiet weekend or even a day trip. If you’re heading straight to Oxford from either London Heathrow Airport or London Gatwick, you’ll be able to take the train by making a connection in London’s city center. Direct trains run directly to Oxford Railway Station and London Paddington. The Heathrow Express heads directly to Paddington, and from there, it’s about an 80-minute train ride to Oxford. Altogether, you can get from Heathrow to Oxford in just over two hours. 

Getting around the city from Oxford Train Station

How to get to Oxford University from Oxford Train Station 

It’s about as easy as it gets to reach the University’s main campus from Oxford Railway Station. Depending on where you’re headed, it’s as short as a five to ten-minute walk on Walton Street to the first university buildings. From there, the campus is very navigable. 

How to get to Kassam Stadium from Oxford Train Station 

Oxford United Football Club, though not as prominent as many of the Premier League soccer clubs you’ll find in London, is a popular team that plays in League One at Kassam Stadium (locally known as Grenoble Road). The stadium is situated in the Littlemore district southeast of the city center. It’s very simple to get to, being just a few miles from central Oxford. There are special bus services leaving the city center on match days. If you’re leaving directly from Oxford Station, you can take either the City 5 or Stagecoach 1 bus services to Sandy Lane West. The trip takes about 40 minutes and buses run every five minutes or so. It’s important to leave at least an hour prior to kickoff to leave time for the short walk into the stadium.
