Nocturne Live at Blenheim Palace

Have you got tickets to the fantastic line-up of summer concerts at Nocturne Live? 

Let us get you there...

 

Getting there by bus

From Oxford, you can catch the S3 bus which runs up to every 20 minutes Mondays to Fridays and up to every 30 minutes at weekends. Get S3 timetable.


Alternatively, you can catch the 7 bus which runs up to every 30 minutes Monday to Sunday. Get 7 timetable.

 Catch the S3 bus from   Gloucester Green bus station  bay 8. Approximate journey time to Blenheim Palace is 27 minutes. Please be aware that travel time may vary depending on traffic conditions. 

Catch the 7 bus from Oxford George Street stop B2. Approximate journey time to Blenheim palace is 36 minutes. The 7 also calls at Oxford Parkway for those travelling by train.

From London, take the  Oxford Tube, our 24 hour coach service between London & Oxford. The coach picks up from Victoria, Notting Hill Gate, Marble Arch, Shepherd’s Bush and Hillingdon and drops you into central Oxford at Gloucester Green bus station. From here, you can interchange to the S3 service to Blenheim Palace.

 
Ask the driver for a Tube Connector ticket and you get your return journey on the S3 or 7 for free! Simply buy in cash or by contactless from the driver.

 

 

Getting back by bus

After the event, catch the  S3 or 7 bus from the Blenheim Palace Gates. The stop is at the top of the drive, just walk up to the entrance and cross the road to reach the Oxford-bound bus stop. We’d say allow 15 minutes to walk from the bottom of the drive.


The last S3 buses depart at 2318 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) and 2218 (Sundays) back to Oxford and drop you on George Street. You can then interchange for onward travel and to the Oxford Tube – Gloucester Green bus station is just a short walk away. 

7 buses depart at 2348 (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) and 2228 (Sundays) back to Oxford.

Oxford Tube  coaches to London run 24 hours a day so there’s no such thing as a last bus.
