10am – 11am: Second breakfasts
11am – 11.30am: StoryTime (free)
11.30am – 12 midday: time to order some lunch before the rush!

 

How to Find Barefoot Books

Buses 2 and 2a from Oxford town centre, go towards Kidlington and stop in Summertown on the way. Barefoot Books is opposite a Sainsburys Local and next door to Majestic Wine Warehouse.

There is a large car park on Ferry Lane (for the Ferry Lane Sports Centre) 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 car parks:
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. Sometimes there are a places to park for free for up to 1-hour. However, I can tell you that once you are inside the Barefoot Books studio and see and hear the colourful delights all around, one hour of parking is not enough!
