Oxford is best navigated on foot or cycle. You can walk easily from the train station (far west) to Magdalen College (far east) in 10 to 15 minutes. Oxford’s avenues are full of sidewalks and cross-walks, and Cornmarket Street, the city’s main commercial strip, is open to pedestrians only. Outside the city center, though, things spread out quickly. If you’re planning to be in Oxford for a while, consider getting a bike. You can hire them on daily and weekly rates from Summertown Cycles, Back on Trax, and Bike Zone. Cycle with care: as respectful as drivers are of pedestrians, they are careless toward cyclists. Also note that you’re legally required to have lights when riding at night. And do stay off the sidewalks.
