Travelling to the Centre

The e-Research Centre is based in Keble Road on the northern edge of Oxford city centre, just off Banbury Road and the northern end of St Giles and near to Keble College. We are a 15-minute walk from the city centre.

Travelling by car

Oxford suffers from traffic congestion and limited parking so we recommend that if possible you use public transport when visiting the City. If you are driving we recommend you use one of the Park and Ride facilities around the city.  From London and the South-East Take Junction 8 (A40) from the M40 and follow straight through towards the City Centre; turn right immediately past Magdalen Bridge. From the North Junction 9 off the M40 leads to North Oxford. From the West The A40 also enters North Oxford, at the Banbury Road. Then approach via Parks Road. From the South or South-West Take the A34 or A420 to the Botley interchange.
