Finding us

*Please note that, due to COVID regulations, if you are coming to use the Bodleian Law Library you will need to book a space via the main booking site here  *


Although we are part of the Bodleian, the Bodleian Law Library is not on the same site as other Bodleian reading rooms in the centre of Oxford. We are about a five to ten minute walk from the famous quadrangle of the old Bodleian and the admissions office in the Weston Library. 

Our address is the Bodleian Law Library, St Cross Building, Manor Road, Oxford OX1 3UR. Our location can be seen on the map (marked English and Law). You can see our building here.   

Coming by train

It takes around twenty to thirty minutes to walk from the train station to the Library. Bus numbers 4 and 5 run from the station to the High Street (get off outside Queen's College). Taxis are also available outside the station. For train times, fares and bookings try National Rail.

Coming by coach

Frequent London coaches are run by Oxford Express and the Oxford Tube, plus Megabus run an inexpensive service which must be booked in advance online. Get off at the Queen's Lane stop in the High Street.

Coaches to other parts of the UK are run by National Express.

Coming by car

Car parking at the Library is only available for disabled readers. Parking spaces in Oxford are generally expensive and scarce, so if you are able it is best to use the Park and Ride service or public transport. If you decide to drive into the city, car parks are marked on the map.

Coming by bus

Local Oxford buses are run by Stagecoach and the Oxford Bus Company as well as a number of smaller local operators. The closest bus stops are at Gloucester Green, Magdalen Street or the High Street depending on which direction you are coming from (see map).
