Venue & Travel

BioForward 2023 will be held at The King's Centre, Osney Mead, Oxford OX2 0ES

Please visit the venue website for further details:

Complimentary transport: will be provided to and from TKC from science parks based in Oxfordshire (only). More details will be provided upon registration.

PLEASE NOTE: From April 2023 to October 2023 Botley Road is closed to traffic at the railway bridge between Cripley Road and Frideswide Square. This does not affect The King's Centre because cars coming up Botley Road from the A34 can still access Ferry Hinksey Road to reach us.

Pedestrians, mobility scooters and cyclists coming from Oxford city and the railway station will have access throughout the work.

Driving & Parking: If you are driving we would encourage you to use the Park & Ride service at Seacourt (postcode OX2 0HP). There are regular bus services towards the city centre. The closest stop to The King's Centre is at Osney Island.

Parking on-site at the venue is all pre-booked and reserved, so please head to the closest paid parking which is available at Oxford station or Worcester Street car park.

Walking: If you are in Oxford and prefer to walk, The King's Centre can be accessed by the Thames towpath from Folly Bridge or Osney Island. 

Rail: The King's Centre is just a 10 – 15 minute walk from Oxford rail station. Walking is recommended during the work taking place on the railway bridge (see above). However if you require a taxi, try 001 Taxi on 01865 240000.
