No parking is available on site.
We recommend using one of 5 Oxford Park and Rides which have frequent bus links into the city centre. Seacourt Park and Ride is the closest to the city, however, as that can often get busy (especially on weekends), Redbridge Park and Ride is our preferred car park.
Car parks can be found at Oxpens, Worcester Street, Gloucester Green and Westgate Shopping Centre. All are a short walking distance from Oxford Castle.
Coach parking is available at Redbridge Park and Ride.
