Hi there,

Does anybody know if it is doable/plausible to commute from London to

oxford. The oxford tube looks to be a good option since I live west London,
but I’m not sure about morning rush hour. (I’m hoping compared to all the
traffic coming into London leaving London shouldn’t be that bad)


Unless you live in Hillingdon, and work near Gloucester Green in Oxford,
you're looking at at least an average of 2 hours each way every day - is
that really what you want?

Indeed. I once had an interview in Reading for a rather good job, but by
the time I'd driven there I knew I wouldn't be taking it. There was no way
either myself or the car could handle that commute each day.
