Directions To Venue

How to get there by train or on foot

Banbury railway station is less that 15 minutes walk from our location, and is well served by Cross Country and Chiltern Railways, both of which have at least two services each way during most of the day, First Great Western services also serve the station. Please note, however, that the direct walk from the station involves a very steep walk up a hill for approximately ½ mile! For those who do not wish to attempt this walk we would recommend taking a taxi. They are readily available at the station.
