Exeter College’s historic site is in the heart of Oxford, in Turl Street. Within two minutes’ walk are the eclectic shops of Broad Street and the Covered Market plus some of the best cafés and restaurants in Oxford. The historic site is flanked by Oxford University’s Bodleian Library, Sheldonian Theatre, and Museum of the History of Science, and it overlooks beautiful Radcliffe Square.
The College’s main entrance is on the east side of Turl Street, about 30 metres north of Brasenose Lane. If you are coming by car you may load and unload at the College entrance, but you may not park. There are several public car parks within walking distance, and Park and Ride bus services operate from Oxford’s ring road.
