Trains from Oxford Parkway to London Marylebone

Our brand new service from Oxford Parkway to London Marylebone, via Bicester opened on Monday 26 October 2015.

A long time in the making this pioneering rail project sees the first new rail link between a major British city and London in over 100 years.

With two new fast trains per hour throughout the day between Oxford Parkway and Bicester Village station and London Marylebone and journey times from just 56 minutes why not try " This brand new way to London" and experience :

  • Fast trains to London with easy tube connections; the Bakerloo just moments away at London Marylebone and a choice of four more tube lines within a five minute walk to Baker Street
  • FREE Wi-Fi on our silver trains
  • Power points
  • Spacious carriages with plenty of tables

Below are four videos showing why and how we built the new line to Oxford; some aerial footage of the new Oxford Parkway station; and the view from the driver's cab on our brand new line with some facts and figures below on what it took to make it happen.
