What's the best way of getting there by public transport? (from Oxford)

Hi there. Thanks for getting in touch. The best way is to get the train from Oxford to Didcot Parkway. From there you can either get a taxi or get the '33 Connector' from Parkway Station (Stop R2) to Curie Avenue and then it is a 4 minute walk from there to Harwell Campus.
