From London and the East

Leave the M40 motorway at Junction 8 signposted Oxford A40. Continue for approximately 5 miles; the A40 meets the Green Road roundabout, go straight across, following signs for Headington and the City Centre; continue straight on for 2 miles through Headington until you reach another roundabout - The Plain - and take the last exit. Cross Magdalen Bridge, and at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street and take the first right into Manor Road after St Cross Church. Cross the river and you have arrived.

From the South

Leave the A34 at the first Oxford exit. At the roundabouts follow signs for the city centre. Pass the Park & Ride on your left, take a right at the second set of traffic lights into Donnington Bridge Road. At the lights turn left, continue straight on until you reach a roundabout - The Plain. Go straight over and cross Magdalen Bridge; at the traffic lights turn right into Longwall Street and take the first right into Manor Rd after St Cross Church. Cross the river and you have arrived.

From the North

Leave the M40 at Junction 9, following signs for Oxford A34. Continue for approximately 8 miles, then take the Oxford/ Cheltenham exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout take the second exit. At the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit along the A40, following signs to M40 London. At the next roundabout take the right exit, following signs for Summertown and the City Centre. Continue for approximately 2 miles, then turn left into Parks Rd (opposite church). Pass the Park and Museum on the left, and take the next left into South Parks Road. The road bends sharply right, past more playing fields; take the next left into Manor Road just before the road bends sharply right again. St. Catherine's is ahead of you.

From the West

We recommend that visitors bypass the City and approach from the North. Leave the M4 at Junction 15 and follow signs for Oxford A420. Continue along the A420 for approximately 30 miles. Rather than continue through the western side of the City, at the A34 interchange, head north following signs for M40 but leave at the next exit. At the Pear Tree roundabout follow signs to City Centre, passing the services and Park & Ride; at the next roundabout (Wolvercote) take the second exit. From here follow directions as from the North. For those approaching on the A40,cross straight over the Wolvercote roundabout and follow the directions as from the North.
