Transport to and from Studley Wood
If you’re staying in Oxford, you will need transport to and from Studley Wood Golf Club. If you don’t have your own car taxis will cost £40 to £60 for a return trip. Or, we can organize a private transport service which costs £20 a day, which you pay directly to Studley Wood Golf Club. Each morning we will pick up from the car park at Jury’s Inn Hotel and take you back there at the end of the training day. To use this service please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org in advance, so that we can organize the transport and reserve your place. If you’re staying at the Holiday Inn, at the Pear Tree Roundabout in Oxford you can also book this service as Jury’s Inn is only a 5 minute walk.
By rail: Bicester North and Oxford Parkway are the closest mainline stations to the venue, which are both approximately 10 miles from the venue. Oxford railway station is about 12 miles away. To get to the venue you will need a taxi.
By taxi: Local taxi services include Alpha Cars of Bicester (phone 01869 252525) or A2B of Oxford (phone 01865 477477).
By air: The closest international airport is London Heathrow, 43 miles away. It takes around an hour by road, depending on traffic.
There is a regular bus service from Heathrow to Oxford. You would then need a taxi to the training venue. Alternatively, you could use an airport taxi company such as Oxford Airport Taxis to take you directly from the airport to your accommodation.
To travel from Heathrow to Oxford by train, you need to get a train to London then another back out to Oxford, so we would recommend the bus service or airport taxi.
The training venue (at Studley Wood Golf Course) was wonderful.
