Everywhere you turn there is one; they appear from nowhere; they're parked on every corner of the city....can you guess? BIKES!
Oxford is defined by its bicycles; they're a brilliant way to get around the city and by far the most popular mode of transport.
If you're visiting for the day though, do not fear, most of central Oxford is easy enough on foot, given that many of the streets are pedestrianised.
Oxford isn't very car-friendly...so what's the best way to get there?
The Park and Ride
You drive to a car park on the outskirts of the city and get a free bus into the centre.
This is way cheaper than parking in the city and with regular buses it's usually pretty easy - it only takes a few minutes!

The Oxford Tube
These are the coaches running between Oxford and London.
The tubes depart from Gloucester Green bus station in the city centre.
There are frequent departures 24/7 for a relatively low cost.

There is a train station within walking distance of the city centre.
A new direct line has recently opened between Oxford and London making it easier than ever!

If you really want to drive it is possible...
There are car parks in the city centre which let you pay with credit/debit card or cash.
These are situated on Gloucester Green, Worcester Street, Becket Street (Train station) and Oxpens Road. However, some of these are pretty pricey!
You can also park on meters for a short time but spaces are limited!
For people with disabilities, there is information and a parking map: https://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/media/global/wwwadminoxacuk/localsites/accessguide/images/symbols/CityCentreDisabilityParking.pdf
