Somerville is close to the historic centre of Oxford and easily accessible by car, coach, rail and bus.


Parking is available on St Giles, within a few minutes’ walk of the college. The Gloucester Green, Worcester Street and Broad Street car parks are also a short walk from Somerville. There is more parking available at Port Meadow, although this is further away. Minibuses can park at the college if you enquire in advance.

Coach drop-off

Coaches can drop-off at the Maths Institute, our neighbours. There is free parking at Somerville for minibuses by prior arrangement.

Getting here from the train station

Walking up from the main train station is very convenient. Several regular bus services run virtually door to door in just under ten minutes, with a return costing around £4. You can walk the same distance in around 15-20 minutes.
