Directions to The Eynsham Carnival

Eynsham can be found on any good UK road map. The village is located just off the A40, midway between the city of Oxford and Witney.

Eynsham's bus service to/from Oxford and Witney is extremely good. Buses run all day and are very frequent. So if you are visiting or staying in Oxford or Witney and don't want to drive to the Carnival, then you can catch a number S1 bus from either

  • Oxford : In George Street, near the inter-city coach station

  • Witney: Next to the town centre market place, just outside Barclays Bank.

The Carnival Field is on the outskirts of the village in the V between the Oxford Road and the B4449

If you come by car use Siemens car park next to the Talbot Inn (OX29 4BT) which is very near to the Carnival Field. There is a separate, signposted disabled car park opposite the Carnival Field in Oxford Road. (Also included on the map)

You are strongly advised to get to the village before Parade starts. Most of the roads in and out of the village will be very hard to pass through during these events and there will be road closures along the Parade route from 11am – 2pm.

Please note that closed roads are for Pedestrians and Emergency Vehicles only. If you ignore the road closure signs you could be fined up to £1000.
