Plan your travel during Countryfile's Oxfordshire visit

One of the UK’s most popular events, Countryfile Live, is coming to Oxfordshire again from 1 – 4 August.

The annual event at Blenheim is set to attract thousands of visitors over the four days and so it’s a good idea to look ahead at your travel plans, whether you are going to the event or simply commuting through the area.

The event organisers employ a traffic management company who will ensure that the right road signs are in place and delays kept to a minimum. For anyone attending the event there’s information on the best public transport options as well as on-site parking for those who need it: https://www.countryfilelive.com/blenheim-palace/location

County Councillor Yvonne Constance, Cabinet member for Environment, said: “Countryfile is a major event for Oxfordshire and it attracts huge numbers of people, but thanks to the arrangements the organisers have developed the impact on the roads should be minimised.

“But that’s not to say that you shouldn’t plan your journeys – taking public transport to the event can be easier and make for a more enjoyable day.

“Because it is held in the school summer holidays the roads will be quieter so, for anyone commuting around the area, the best advice would be to keep an eye and ear on the local traffic news just in case.”
