I'm going to the Balliol open day next Thursday and have been scouring the internet for almost and
hour and still I have not found the price of a return ticket from London!!!!!! Anyways do any of you
have a clue how much it costs I think it is quite cheap but just need to make sure.

On a more serious note how is Balliol anyway I know Mark Thakkar goes there and know the basic
background--- Effortless Superiority , Feud with Trinity and relaxed atmosphere (what ever that
exactly means). I have read the profiles on Oxbridge-info there are only two or three though with
most of them pretty useless except Mark's. I am hoping to apply for History and Politics.

Thanks for any views

You're right in that it's not excessively expensive.... don't think you'll find out on the net as
it's one of those 'regional' type journeys rather than a national one.

Not as good as Trinity ;-)

Oh, and you might want to consider getting a YP railcard if you don't already have one. A quick
guesstimate for the price of a return (same day) ticket from paddington to oxford.... *absolute* max
of £25... i would hope!

if you use www.qjump.co.uk then you don't have to register unless you want to buy the ticket online.
(and its also faster) By rail I think its about £15 (no railcard) if you don't travel too early. If
you arrive sometime before around 9am then its about £30 // from memory - don't quote me on it.

Trains are not safe. You never know when a crash is likely to occur.

coach from london-oxford costs £9.00 return, goes every 15-20 minutes, takes 1 hour 40 minutes,
leaves from London Victoria and other places between there and the M40. Pay the driver on boarding.

Yes, this is definitely the way to go, I reckon. It's quite a pleasant journey and deposits you
right in the centre of Oxford, by Queen's College or Gloucester Green bus station, IIRC.
