    Bicester North station has over 700 car park spaces and Bicester Village just over 200.  We therefore advise anyone who can walk or cycle to Bicester Village station to do so as the car park will be very busy and also the traffic flow in the area will be affected by the railway crossing barriers on London Road.

  • Can I use e cigarettes at Chiltern stations

    The smoking of cigarettes and vaping of e-cigarettes is prohibited on trains and at railway stations. Given their remarkable likeness the use of e-cigarettes can cause concern amongst other passengers.

    In the same way as you would expect people to react if you were to vape an e-cigarette in a restaurant, in the confined space of a railway carriage or platform, their use has led to complaints.  In light of this, we have issued guidance to our staff to ask people using an e-cigarette to stop doing so for the comfort and convenience of their fellow passengers. Similarly to being asked to turn off a mobile phone if the conversation is causing irritation to others, most customers observe a form of social etiquette and do not deliberately undertake actions when they realise these could be annoying other people in their vicinity.

  • Which station(s) should I alight at for key attractions/facilities?
    Warwick Castle = Warwick Station
    Wembley Stadium = Wembley Stadium Station
    Bicester Village = Bicester Village station from London Marylebone or Bicester North Station from Birmingham Moor St 
    Stoke Mandeville Hospital = Aylesbury Station
  • Why do you charge 30p to use the toilets are Marylebone?

    We charge 30p at Marylebone to bring us in line with other London Terminal stations. The 30p is used to supply dedicated security and cleaning. Toilets are available on board all of our trains.
