Travelling to college

Banbury and Bicester College has a campus near Banbury’s town centre, with our specialist classic vehicle programmes run at Bicester Heritage.

We encourage our students to use alternative modes of transport other than cars. By doing this we are aiming to reduce the amount of traffic as well as promoting a healthy lifestyle and living environment.

Banbury and Bicester are situated in north Oxfordshire, with easy access to Oxford. Oxford is ideally placed, well connected to cities and airports, including London Heathrow.
