Skills required

No experience is needed but do contact us if possible to let us know you're planning to come.

Parking can be difficult in Oxford, so we recommend cycling or using public transport. There are a few parking spaces on Aristoitle Lane. Or you can walk 1 mile (20mins) on the towpath from Hythe Bridge Road in the city centre.
