If you have secured a visitor parking space, our offices are on the ground floor of Ewert House. This is reached by turning off the Banbury Road (A4165) along Ewert Place (between Marks & Spencer and Majestic Wines) for c40 metres and following the access road round to the right (behind Majestic WInes) down a slope (between railings) and through a small car park to the Ewert House car park barrier. If driving, please press the button at the barrier to contact reception, who will let you through to the parking area.

To get to reception, after the barrier, head towards the building in front of you, then turn right, where there are steps and a ramp leading to the entrance. There is no public access to Ewert House, but you should be able to enter the reception lobby without a pass during normal office hours. If there is no one on reception, please call Imogen Holbrook on xtn.287850  from the phone in reception and we shall come out to welcome you.

Because of parking constraints in and around Oxford, we have very limited parking available for visitors. However, if you are travelling by car there are two large public car parks adjacent to Ewert House, Summertown Car Park and Ferry Leisure Centre Car Park.

The charges for both car parks (at the time of writing – January 2015) are: £1.70 for up to 2 hours and £3.20 for up to 3 hours.
Please be aware that some sat-nav systems will direct you to the Ferry Leisure Centre car park when you enter our post code.


Alternatively, for longer visits there are Park-and-Ride schemes on most major routes towards Oxford. For bus journeys from the city centre, ask for “Summertown Shops”.
