Set in beautiful Oxfordshire countryside and just on the outskirts of the village of Towersey, the studio is found between the rural towns of Thame and Chinnor.

We would love it if everyone one of our visitors arrived via sustainable or public transport, we do appreciate that it is not always feasible.

More carbon neutral suggestions are written further down the page, but with Sustran’s Phoenix Trail within a stone’s throw of the meadow, I really cannot recommend a more pleasant way of getting here than by bike!

By Car
Just a few minutes drive away from Junction 6 of the M40, we are quick and easy to get to by car and there are plenty of parking spaces.

Here is the address for those of you with SatNavs:

The Phoenix Studio
Chinnor Road, Towersey,
Nr Thame, OXON

By Bike
The Phoenix Trail, a National Cycle Network route, is right adjacent to the Phoenix Studio (hence its name!) and runs between Thame and Princes Risborough.

Its a beautiful route with modern sculpture placed along Trail. The Studio is 4.5 miles from Princes Risborough Train Station and 1.4 miles from Thame Town Centre.

By Bus
There are two potential bus options available to you.

The No.40 bus comes through Towersey and runs between High Wycombe, Studley Green, Stokenchurch, Chinnor and Thame.


The Oxford Tube is a frequent, fast coach service between London and Oxford and it stops just a few miles away from Towersey. You can arrange a taxi from Lewknor to the Phoenix Studio (book in advance) or let us know when you are coming, and we can pick you up for a small fee.

By Train
There are two train stations nearby – Princes Risborough and Haddenham & Thame Parkway. Both are just over 4 miles from the Phoenix Studio.

Once you arrive at the station, you can either get a taxi or we can arrange to pick you up for a small fee.
