Oxford is well serviced by train and coach from London and is a great location to base yourself to see the Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace, and Bicester Village Shopping Centre. The Oxford Tube bus company leaves London every 12 minutes and costs 11 to 14 return, Megabus is 1 when booked in advance on the internet. If you want to take the train, it is only 1 hour to Oxford, leaving from Paddington Station and will cost approx 23 return.
