Oxford Parkway Blog Header Close Homes

Oxford Parkway train stations opens making the journey just one hour from Oxford to London Marylebone.

The new Oxford to London train service started operating on Monday 26 October, with the first train leaving at 0724. The new station is the first major new link with London in 100 year with trains running between Oxford and London in under an hour. This exciting new service provides many opportunities for those who work in London but would rather live in Oxford, with the opportunities for great schooling and easy access to countryside.

Our North Oxford office is currently marketing 5 fantastic properties all within a mile or two of the new station, which are perfect for families looking for good schools, easy access to London and proximity to lovely rural villages with their pubs and country walks.
