The Oxford Tube and Oxford Espress services from London stop on the High Street opposite Queen's lane, which is only two or three minutes' walk from the College. Here is a Google map showing Merton College in relation to the city centre and the train station.
Oxford is an ancient, pedestrian-friendly city, with many one-way streets and limited parking. If you're travelling to Merton by car, it is best to enter the High Street from the east, turning left into Merton Street at the Eastgate Hotel. Alternatively, there are five Park and Ride services in Oxford which all serve the city centre.
See Merton in 360 degrees in this interactive Virtual Tour (requires Apple Quicktime software). It's the next best thing to strolling through College in person.
