Visiting Oxford

The city of Oxford revolves around its university, which is one of the oldest and most prestigious in the world. First established in the 12th century, Oxford University is scattered around the centre of city in 38 colleges, each of which possess their own unique history. The university is, of course, a major draw for tourists and scholars alike, but there is plenty more to discover in The City of Dreaming Spires.

Oxford is a bustling cosmopolitan city with one foot in the past and one firmly in the future, with its roots in the UK’s technology and business communities thanks to the science and business parks located within the city limits. The region is also home to the rolling hills of the Cotswolds and the Cotswold Wildlife Park for those that wish to commune with nature, and there are almost as many museums and landmarks in the city as there are in London, only Oxford is a far less hectic place to spend an afternoon.

Besides offering plenty of options for family days out such as boating trips down the city’s famous waterways or walking tours around Oxford Castle and Oxford University, Oxford also provides ample opportunities for evenings out. It’s musical heritage (Pink Floyd and Radiohead once called it home) is undeniable, and there are plenty of music venues where you can catch the latest groups or your old favourites. There are also many traditional pubs and restaurants to discover, which have provided inspiration for countless cultural greats (CS Lewis, JRR Tolkien, Philip Pullman and many more) over the city’s long history. Oxford is truly a city with old bones and a young soul.

Our coach and minibus operators know Oxford well. Here are some popular coach pick up locations to inspire your trip:

The University Of Oxford

The Oxford Artisan Distillery
Old Depot
South Park
Cheney Ln

Oxford Castle

Radcliffe Camera

Botanic Garden

Coach Hire Oxford

Oxford is a historical city located just north of London, which attracts a great deal of tourism due to its world-famous university, gorgeous river, cultural relevance and unique atmosphere. As a tourism hub, it is also home to a number of top coach operators, which we are ready to put you in touch with, should you be planning a group trip to or from the city in the near future.

Hiring a coach for group travel is almost always the best option with the least hassle involved. Trains are unreliable at best, they generally don’t cater to large groups, and they offer little in the way of discounts. An organised coach trip is much more flexible, and they will pick you up and drop off wherever you like. The plans are based entirely around your travel needs. A coach is also the most comfortable and relaxed way to travel long-distance, particularly with a larger group. Most modern coaches will include features such as reclining seats, Wi-Fi and bathroom facilities, and as the coach is exclusive to your group, you can enjoy the atmosphere without having to worry about other passengers.

The task of arranging the right operator for the right trip can prove time consuming but that’s where we can help. Our system is easy to understand and even easier to use. It’s also completely free. We work with a network of 196 trusted coach operators, many of which are based in and around the Oxford area. All you have to do is fill in your journey requirements and we’ll put the pieces together for you, matching your requirements to the coach operators that we feel are best equipped to handle your journey. You’ll receive a series of no-obligation quotes back in a matter of minutes. The next step is to choose the quote that best suits your needs and reach out to the operator in question. We join the dots and allow you to work directly with the operators themselves for a more tailored experience. From family-run businesses to major, national companies, we work with the best of the best and make sure that all of the companies we work with are fully vetted and reliable. We only put you in touch with people we trust!
