We are travelling to Oxford next Friday (staying at the Youth Hostel) and need to park our car from when we arrive (9-10pm fri) until when we leave 12-1 Sunday. I understand parking in Oxford is a nightmare! Ive checked on the internet and cannot find any overnight car parking. Ive even resorted to looking on a website called "park on my Drive" where residents will let you park at their house for a fee - but cannot find anywhere close enough. Are there any MNetters who can point me in the direction of any overnight parking that they are aware of. Thank you.

You can park for free in all of the park and ride car parks in oxford. At Thornhill and Water Eaton park and rides you can park for up to 72 hours, so that should be fine. You'd then need to get the bus into the centre.

For the Youth Hostel (by the Station?) I'd park at the Seacourt Park and Ride as it's just a short ride to the centre and the bus should stop very close by.

Seacourt is on the A34 Botley side of town.

It's a long time since I've used P&R, but you can buy season tickets for parking there. There should be info on the website greensnail linked to.
