BY TRAIN / BUS

There is an excellent train and bus service to Oxford from anywhere in the UK. However, there is a very limited local bus service to Boars Hill.
Bus nos. 4 and 4B – which leave Oxford City Centre at Castle Street at 08 minutes and 38 minutes past the hour respectively (and Frideswide Square opposite the railway station – five minutes later) for Abingdon – pass by Wootton (bus stop at Sandleigh Road).
The bus journey takes about 26 minutes, and the walk to the Priory takes about 35 minutes.
For up-to-date information on the bus service, please check www.oxfordbus.co.uk
If you wish, you can take a taxi from the train or bus station to the Priory. Youlbury Scout Camp is a good landmark for taxi drivers.
We have a contract with capped fees for our visitors with Royal Cars. Tel.: 01865-777333.
The Carmelite Priory is 300 yards past the entrance to the camp.
