Trip Report My favourite things in Oxford

Jump to last reply

When I write a trip report, I try to include answers to questions that I had before I went. Fodorites who have already worked out their own, better answers can:
a) improve mine
b) read more advanced stuff
c) read mine anyway

Let me first write about transport and lodging. As others have said here, the trip between Heathrow and Oxford is easy. After you have collected your luggage at Heathrow Terminal 5 you keep on following the signs for 'central bus station' ... maybe a 10 minute walk. You can buy tickets right there: £30 pp return. If you buy tickets for more than one person, and you want it printed seperetely, you have to tell the strict lady before the time.
I made the mistake of asking for a BUS. It is not a bus, it is called a COACH. A bus, I have learned from the nice driver, travels within cities, a coach has better seats and bigger windows and travel between cities. So there you have it.
More to follow, at least I have made a start.
