Central Headington is a thriving community very close to Oxford city centre, (about 1.5 miles from the High Street). There are excellent bus routes from London and London airports and into Oxford. Headington is very well serviced by traditional pubs, cafes, bistros, parks and supermarkets (Waitrose). The Churchill, John Radcliffe and Nuffield Hospitals are located very nearby as is the Old Road Campus of the University of Oxford and the main campus for Oxford Brookes University.

5 - 10 minute walk from the Oxford Tube, X90 and Heathrow/Gatwick Express
