Oxford Centre for Innovation is a 5 minute walk from Oxford train station. From the main exit cross over the pedestrian crossings to the large sand-coloured building called Said Business School. Cross the road, continuing over the island to the row of shops. At the next set of traffic lights, cross the road and continue along Park End Street. Cross Tidmarsh Lane, and Oxford Centre for Innovation is on the right after the Registry Office.
For satellite navigation systems please use the postcode OX1 1NA – you will need to turn right at the end of Tidmarsh Lane and the centre is the first building on the right with a yellow barrier.
The centre can be reached from the Botley or Hinksey interchanges from the A34 to the west of Oxford. If necessary, drive around the Oxford Ring Road to reach either of these interchanges.
From the Botley interchange head towards the city centre along the Botley Road. At the junction outside Oxford Rail Station, take the right fork to follow Park End Street.
From the Hinksey Interchange, follow signs for the city centre and follow the Abingdon Road. After about 2 miles, the main road forks left at a set of traffic lights. Follow the road until you reach a set of double traffic lights close to Oxford Rail Station – turn right at the first set to join Park End Street.
Continue along Park End Street, over the next set of traffic lights and Oxford Centre for Innovation is immediately on the right, set back from the road with a yellow barrier.
Some visitors parking is available at the Centre but please book this before arrival. Alternatively, Worcester Street pay and display car park is a short walk away and can be accessed next to the final set of traffic lights next to the Centre.
