Practicalities

Getting there:

Flying to Heathrow is most convenient, and there is an excellent bus connection (http://airline.oxfordbus.co.uk/). The same company serves Gatwick Airport, however, the trip is longer.

From the Gloucester Green busstop there is a 15 mins walk to St. Anne’s College (directions) or a short taxi ride.
