Parking in Oxford

I highly, highly recommend parking on the outskirts of the city center and walking from there—even with luggage.

Honestly, I one spent more than half an hour simply trying (and failing) to find a way to drive further into the center to pick up my family at our hotel. The one-way streets and pedestrian areas were confounding and kept directing me away fomr my goal, turning me aside and spitting me back onto a road headed away from the center no matter how I approached. I eventually ended up having to break the law and drive a short block down a pedestrian mall just to get to where I was going. No, I am not proud.
