Pedestrians and cyclists are welcomed at St Anne's, with ample provision of bicycle racks on College property. There is also a side gate adjacent to these racks for use by members of the College during the day. Visitors should come to the Lodge on Woodstock Road, where they will be directed to the bicycle storage area. For information on cycle routes in Oxford, please consult the Oxfordshire County Council website.
The city centre is best avoided by approaching College from the north on the A4165 Banbury Road or A4144 Woodstock Road, both of which are accessible from the ring road. Sat Nav users should enter the postcode OX2 6HT.
If using the M40 from the north leave at Junction 9, but from the south-east leave at Junction 8. However, on-road parking near College is near impossible, and unauthorized parking in College is prohibited. In some cases, a short stay parking permit can be arranged in advance by your host.
There are five park-and-rides available on the outskirts of Oxford, so you are sure to find one no matter from which direction you have driven. They are all clearly sign-posted, linked to the centre of the city by regular bus services, and open 24 hours per day (bus services run until about 9.30 pm).
There are frequent direct trains to Oxford station from London Paddington and regular links northwards via Birmingham, southwards via Reading, and westwards via Didcot. Railtrack's online timetable is available here. The station is a 15 minute walk from St Anne's, but there is of course a taxi rank at the station.

There are very frequent services from London Victoria Station and operated by Oxford Bus Company (‘Oxford Espress’) and Stagecoach (‘Oxford Tube’), as well as from Heathrow and Gatwick Airports. A rather less frequent service connects with Birmingham International airports. There are connections with many other parts of the country, including a direct service to Cambridge. The central bus and coach depot (Gloucester Green) is a 10 minute walk south of the College. This link will take you to a map with directions to St Anne's from the main coach station: View Larger Map
The most convenient arrival airport is London Heathrow, from which there is a frequent express coach service to Oxford (see above). London Gatwick is a little further, but again there is direct coach service to and from Oxford. Birmingham International, Stansted and Luton have less frequent coach and/or rail connections with Oxford.
