How to Find Barefoot Books

From Oxford town centre, the buses 2 and 2a go towards Kidlington and stop in Summertown on the way. Barefoot Books is opposite Sainsburys Local and next door to Majestic Wine Warehouse, which is also is near to BBC Oxford.

There is a large car park on Ferry Lane connecting with Diamond Place car park and then it’s just about a five minute walk to Barefoot Books from there. Ferry Lane car park has more space and spaces and is only an extra 1-minute walk. We recommend this car park to you as Diamond Place is extremely busy all them time and with narrower spaces.

Parking prices are the same at both carparks:
0-1 hour: £1.20
1-2 hours £1.70
2-3 hours £3.20
3-4 hours 5.20

There is a slip road to one side of Banbury Road up the middle of Summertown. There are a few places to park for free for up to 1-hour. Worth looking there first perhaps!?
