The two main airports to use for Oxford are London Heathrow and London Gatwick (Heathrow being the closest). Here are the two official websites for these airports.
Here is the official word from the Oxford City Guide.
“In our opinion, the easiest and cheapest way to get to Oxford is to take a bus from the airport that comes straight to the city. Buses run by The Airline leave Heathrow approximately every 20 minutes, and Gatwick every hour, and are large, comfortable coaches that allow you to sit back, relax, and watch the beautiful countryside. From Heathrow, a return ticket costs approximately £19 and takes approximately 80 minutes from terminals 1,2,and 3, and 100 minutes from terminal 5 (for terminal 4 you will need to take the free inter-terminal train to either terminal 5 or central bus station). From Gatwick, a return ticket costs approximately £27 and takes approximately 120 minutes. The buses make a few stops once they reach Oxford, and if you’re looking to get off at the main bus station, tell the driver you want to go to Gloucester Green (pronounced “Gloss-ster”).”
There are two smaller airports reasonably close by –
Both these airports have an excellent service provided by National Express Coaches that will get you to Oxford bus station.
