How to find The Partnering Initiative:
The Partnering Initiative is located in The Old Music Hall, at 106-108 Cowley Road, right next to G&D’s café.
When you arrive at the Old Music Hall, please ring up from the front door: press B on the keypad and, once a dialling tone has sounded, key in 12.
From Oxford rail station, you can take either bus number 5 or a taxi to the Old Music Hall. The taxi rank and the number 5 bus stop are both located just outside the main station entrance.
If taking the bus, you will need to get off at the first stop on Cowley road, after ‘the Plain’ (the roundabout at the end of the High Street). You can ask the driver for the stop ‘opposite James Street’. If you turn back in the direction the bus came from and cross the road, you will see the Old Music Hall.
The taxi takes about 10-15 minutes and likely to cost around £10.
On a nice day, it is an easy, and beautiful, 25 minute (1.5 mile) walk. Take a left out of the station complex into Frideswide Square to head East with the Said Business School on your left. At the East edge of the Square, there are two roads that continue East – take the one on the right, Park End Street. Then just keeping going straight (Park End Street becomes New Road becomes the pedestrianised Queen Street becomes the High Street). Continue to the end of the High Street and you’ll eventually cross Magdalen Bridge and come to the roundabout at the Plain. Take the second exit, Cowley Road, and after about 400m you will see the Old Music Hall on the right.
The London buses (X90 and Oxford Tube) and the Airport buses from Heathrow and Gatwick (Airline buses) all stop at St Clements (seen as A420 on the map above). From St Clements you can walk down Jeune street to Cowley road, and then cross the street to the Old Music Hall.
From the north, leave the M40 at junction 8a, and from the south, leave it at junction 8 following signs to Oxford/A40. Continue down the A40 until you get to the major roundabout, which is on the Oxford ringroad. Go straight across the roundabout, following signs to Oxford, to take the London Road. Continue this all the way into Oxford, passing all the way through Headington (at which point it becomes Headington Road). At a set of traffic lights just before Oxford Brookes University turn left onto Gypsy Lane, then at the junction, right onto Warneford Lane and then bear left onto Divinity Road which you will follow all the way down the hill. At the end, turn right onto Cowley Road. You will find the Old Music Hall around 300m on your left just after the Marston Street turning.
The Old Music Hall has limited parking spaces. If you are visiting us for the day we will arrange a parking permit for you, subject to availability – please get in touch ahead of time with your registration details. The carpark is round the back of the building, accessible from Marston Street.
