where we are

The workshop is a purpose-designed training space in the heart of Oxford, housed in a gingerbread cottage by Magdalen Bridge, which is at the end of the High Street. Close by in East Oxford on St Clements and Cowley Road are many cafes, sandwich bars and restaurants, and a variety of small supermarkets and a range of shops.

Facilities for refreshments are available in the training room (fair-trade where possible) and the fridge and microwave can be used. Please use washable pens or pencils to avoid accidents, and use the storage areas available for bags and coats (and if you wish, shoes) to keep the space as workable and spacious as possible.

York Place is at the back of the cul-de-sac turning on the right off the London Road, St Clements, just by the Plain roundabout if heading towards Oxford High Street — or on the left if heading out of the city centre towards South Parks, Headington and the A40/M40.

During the current pandemic, please contact us for further information



The nearest is The Old Black Horse Hotel on St Clements which has parking and is about £70 for a single with breakfast — however it is noisy and rooms are very variable.
One of the nicest is a boutique B&B 'Ethos' from £80 about 20 minutes walk away and with parking.
On the High Street the Old Bank Hotel is delightful, expensive and has parking, and the Eastgate which is part of the Mercure chain charges for its parking and occasionally has good room deals.
The following B&Bs are all recommended: Browns Guest House; Heathers; and the Acorn on the Iffley Road all provide B&B in the £40 - £55 per night per person and are under 15 minutes walk (or bus down the Iffley Road to the Plain and a couple of minutes walk). Acorn: http://www.oxford-acorn.co.uk/ phone 01865 247 998; Browns: http://www.brownsoxford.com/; Heather House: http://www.bnbselect.com/bnb/32551.
Other excellent city hotels and chains are on the ring road (15 minutes by bus).

There is an efficient tourist board in Oxford with a website. Currently the University of Oxford is renting rooms with breakfast and provides an interesting experience http://www.oxfordrooms.co.uk/! The YHA youth hostel is by the station and is £22 per night in a dorm and has private rooms — modern and clean with the comforting sound of trains! Other hostels are not particularly recommended!

The Ship B&B is on Ship Street in the centre of town and those who like to be in the middle of things like it!
