Heyford railway station serves the village of Lower Heyford and surrounding area in Oxfordshire, England. It is on the Cherwell Valley Line, and is ideally located for visiting the Oxford Canal and Heyford Wharf which are both alongside. The station, and the ten trains each Monday to Saturday serving it, are operated by Great Western Railway.

Services[edit]

Trains are all operated by Great Western Railway, except for one late night weekday service at 0053 to Banbury, operated by Chiltern. Some peak trains run through to/from London Paddington at peak times, but otherwise services operate between Oxford & Banbury only and call roughly every two hours.[1]

Sundays services operate in the summer months only, usually from the May timetable change until mid-September (3 trains per day each way).
