There is an excellent train/bus service

However, there is a very limited local bus
service to Boars Hill. Bus No. 44 runs
approximately every two hours from
Frideswide Square (near the train station) and
leaves one at the Open University, about a
mile away from the Priory.
If you wish to take a taxi from the train or bus
station we have a special arrangement with
Royal Cars. Pre-booking is necessary on 01865
