From London and the East
Leave the M40 motorway at Junction 8 signposted Oxford A40. Continue for approximately 5 miles; the A40 meets the Green Road roundabout, go straight across, following signs for Headington and the City Centre; continue straight on for 2 miles through Headington until you reach another roundabout – The Plain – and take the last exit. Cross Magdalen Bridge, and at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street and take the first right into Manor Road after St Cross Church. Cross the river and you have arrived.
From the South
Leave the A34 at the first Oxford exit. At the roundabouts follow signs for the city centre. Pass the Park & Ride on your left, take a right at the second set of traffic lights into Donnington Bridge Road. At the lights turn left, continue straight on until you reach a roundabout – The Plain. Go straight over and cross Magdalen Bridge; at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street and take the first right into Manor Rd after St Cross Church. Cross the river and you have arrived.
From the North
Leave the M40 at Junction 9, following signs for Oxford A34. Continue for approximately 8 miles, then take the Oxford/ Cheltenham exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout take the second exit. At the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit along the A40, following signs to M40 London. At the next roundabout take the right exit, following signs for Summertown and the City Centre. Continue for approximately 2 miles, then turn left into Parks Rd (opposite church). Pass the Park and Museum on the left, and take the next left into South Parks Road. The road bends sharply right, past more playing fields; take the next left into Manor Road just before the road bends sharply right again. St. Catherine’s is ahead of you.
From the West
We recommend that visitors bypass the City and approach from the North. Leave the M4 at Junction 15 and follow signs for Oxford A420. Continue along the A420 for approximately 30 miles. Rather than continue through the western side of the City, at the A34 interchange, head north following signs for M40 but leave at the next exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout follow signs to City Centre, passing the services and Park & Ride; at the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit. From here follow directions as from the North. For those approaching on the A40,cross straight over the Wolvercote roundabout and follow the directions as from the North.
St Catherine’s is on the periphery of the City Centre and we do recommend that visitors arriving at the bus or train station take a taxi to the College, especially if they are bringing luggage. However for those who are keen to walk the following directions apply:
From the City Centre
The City Centre to St Catherine’s will take between 15 and 20 minutes. Most local bus stops are located on Cornmarket and Queen Street, and national buses arrive at Gloucester Green Bus Station on George Street. From any of these, you should make your way to Broad Street (opposite Debenhams). Continue to the end of Broad Street, (past the Sheldonian Theatre on the right). At the traffic lights go straight on into Holywell Street, and at the end of this turn left into St Cross Road. Cross the road at the pedestrian crossing (St Cross Church is on your right) and take the next main right into Manor Road. Go over the bridge and St Catherine’s is on your right.
From the Train Station
Taxis are recommended from the station, but if you are happy with a 30 minute walk, turn left as you leave the station area. The Royal Oxford Hotel is directly in front of you; keep left and walk along Hythe Bridge Street, (past Blackwells Bookshop on the left). At the end walk straight across into George Street. At the end of George Street Debenhams Store is on the left – from here walk straight over into Broad Street and follow the directions as from the City Centre.
