Chadlington is well served by Great Western Railways who operate trains from Charlbury rail station, with regular services to London Paddington via Oxford and Reading, and to Hereford.


During the Corona virus emergency there are changes to the normal timetable and passengers are requested not to travel unless their journey is essential. For more information see the GWR website here



Normally, Charlbury has an outstanding railway service for this size of town. Its Brunel-designed station, in the Evenlode Valley below the town, is situated on the newly upgraded Cotswold Line.

Trains run on a generally hourly basis to Oxford, Reading and London Paddington, and in the other direction to Worcester and Great Malvern. Most services are operated by comfortable Inter-City trains. Travel time is around 1hr30 from London and 20mins from Oxford.

The Network Railcard gives a 33% discount on off-peak travel to Charlbury. Connections from the Midlands and North are available at Oxford and Worcester.

Charlbury station has recently undergone considerable refurbishment after the re-opening of the second track between Ascott-under-Wychwood and a point east of Charlbury. The second platform has been reinstated, a new footbridge sensitively constructed and the car park extended and upgraded.
