Contact & Visit Us

A meeting house should not be regarded primarily in terms of bricks and mortar … Its real value derives from the worship and service of the meeting.


Oxford Quaker Meeting House is open throughout the week for groups, meetings, and events. The office is usually staffed from 9am to 4pm Monday to Thursday. There you’ll find the Manager, Jacqui Mansfield, and a number of volunteer ‘Friends on Duty.’

How to find us

The Meeting House is located about halfway along the west side of St Giles’, the wide tree-lined street in the centre of Oxford. It’s a few houses north of the Eagle & Child pub and has a distinctive bright red door.

By train:
We are 0.7 mile (1km) from Oxford Railway Station, which is served by Great Western Railway (from Paddington and Hereford), Chiltern Railways (from Marylebone) and Cross-Country Trains (from Birmingham and the north, Southampton and Bournemouth).

It’s a 15-minute walk from the station to the Meeting House; alternatively, you can take Stagecoach bus 14A from outside the main station entrance.

By bus and coach:
Local buses operated by the Oxford Bus company and Stagecoach stop both at the bottom of St Giles’ (Magdalen St stop) and just above the fork at the top, in Woodstock Road and Banbury Road (Radcliffe Observatory and Keble Road stops respectively).

Coaches from further afield stop at Oxford Coach Station in Gloucester Green, 7 minutes’ walk from the Meeting House.

By car:
We have a car park at the back of the Meeting House (access via Pusey Lane), but spaces are very limited. We recommend that, if possible, you use Oxford’s excellent Park & Ride service. The routes with stops closest to the Meeting House are 300 from Redbridge (south) and Pear Tree (north) and 500 from Oxford Parkway (north). The stops are the same as for the local buses.

If you need to use our car park because of disability or to load/unload items, please contact the Office in advance.
