Getting to Trinity


Trinity College on Google Maps

By Road

If approaching Oxford from the north (the recommended route), head from the ring road down Banbury Road. Turn left onto Parks Road (you can see the Parks on the left), and continue to the traffic lights at the junction with Broad St/Holywell St (with the King’s Arms on your left). Turn right into Broad Street and Trinity is found halfway along the road on the right, behind the blue gates.

If approaching from the west, continue past the station, following the road round to the left and then turning right into Beaumont Street at the traffic lights beside Worcester College. At the end of Beaumont Street, turn left into St Giles, take the right fork into Banbury Road and at the traffic lights turn right to into Parks Road (then following the directions above).

From the east (A420 and Cowley and Iffley Roads) after the passing over Magdalen bridge follow the main traffic route turning right into Longwall Street and then into South Parks Road. At the end of this, turn left at the traffic lights into Parks Road.

From the south, follow signs for the station, then follow the route as if approaching from the west.
