The North Wall Arts Centre
Oxford OX2 7JN
The North Wall is located in Summertown, just 2 miles north of Oxford city centre. For visitors travelling from outside of Oxford, it’s a short journey by bus from both Pear Tree and Oxford Parkway Park & Rides. The venue is also easily accessible from Oxford and Oxford Parkway railway stations. Read on for more detailed instructions…
South Parade is a one-way street with very limited on-street parking, although parking is permissible on the on the single yellow line on the opposite side of the road after 4pm. In general, we advise visitors either to use one of the two public car parks in Summertown (about five minutes’ walk away) or to take a bus from the Pear Tree park and ride.
