Getting to The Mill

Wherever possible we recommend using public transport to get to IWD Banbury.

Banbury train station is a five-minute walk away, via the Oxford Canal pathway or through the Bridge Street entrance to Spiceball Park.

Banbury Town Council provide secure railings for cyclists on the canal front.

If you’re driving to The Mill, please use the postcode: OX16 5QE

Photography, video and feedback

We will be capturing images during IWD Banbury. If you attend, we'll assume given permission to use any photography or video taken on the day. We reserve the right to use any event-related social media posts, quotes or feedback you might give in future material; We'll make sure we credit you wherever possible.
