Location and Transport

Frewin Court
Off Cornmarket Street

Frewin Court is a small yard off the west side of Cornmarket Street in the centre of Oxford, between the Gap store and the Lush shop. The entrance to The Cellar is on the first set of doors on the right hand side. It is within walking distance of all the Oxford city centre bus stops and taxi ranks, and about 15 minutes walk from Oxford rail station. Parking in Oxford is very limited and there is very little parking available close by.


Access to the Cellar is down a steep narrow flight of stairs and is inaccessible to wheelchair users.
