Oxford Brookes astro – the view from the benches outside the bar

After about 150 yards, look for a large stone wall and small gatehouse lodge, just past Pullens Lane, and turn right on the brow of Headington Hill into Oxford Brookes University’s Headington Hill site. Park in one of the car parking areas and then follow the signs to walk to the Centre for Sport. You need to cross over the main road that you turned off – there is a footbridge over the road. Cross the footbridge and keep walking until you see the astro ahead of you and the sports centre building on your left.

Brookes have a map of Headington campus on their website – click in the ‘Detailed map’ section to download a PDF and look at the second page, where the Centre for Sport is bottom left (parking is on the other side of the road – access it through the gate marked as ‘main entrance’).
