How do I get there?

Osney Island is just a few minutes’ walk from Oxford train station and bus stops on the Botley Road. If travelling by car, please use the Park and Ride and take the bus to the Osney Island stop. You can see our position on a map on our website.


The tour involves walking a few hundred metres along the towpath and over rough grass. Access to the main site is via the towpath and is step-free. If you have any hearing, visibility or mobiity impairment, please contact the organisers in advance so we can understand how we can best facilitate your visit.

Social distancing

For the safety of our visitors we are restricting the number of visitors to the site and regret we will not be able to open up the power house or walkway. We ask that all visitors to the site respect social distancing guidelines at all times. To reduce ‘touch points’ on the site we will not be providing leaflets this year, but you can download a copy here: OLH information leaflet

Trace and Track Register

To support the NHS Track and Track Register, we will be retaining details of the lead member of a booking group for 21 days after the event. 

Facilities on site

Please note there are no toilets on site.

What if I can no longer attend?

We have only a limited number of places on each tour so please let us know as soon as possible if you are no longer able to attend.
