Planning a visit
The Old Ticket Office is occupied by Entikera Ltd (trading as Mpfineartprinting.co.uk and is closed outside normal working hours and at other times when the need arises. Visitors are welcome by prior arrangement only as it is a working environment and it may not be possible to accommodate unexpected visitors, although we will always do our best to make everybody welcome if work permits. It is strongly advised therefore to contact us before making a special journey.
~ Given sufficient notice, the offices can be opened for viewing by organised groups during the evening or at weekends ~

Travelling to the Office
By CarThe Old Ticket Office is located off the main A415 just over two miles from Abingdon and close to the Culham Science Centre. Limited free car parking is available next to the Ticket Office, or over the footbridge by the Railway Inn.
By BusReductions in services and routes means that travelling to the station by bus is not too easy, but Thames Travel run a limited service between Abingdon and the Culham Science Centre, which is just a few minutes walk away. The service is number 45 and you can check the latest timetable by clicking or tapping on the thumbnail image.
On FootA few intrepid travellers have popped in to see us whilst exploring the local paths, or on their way to/from the Thames Footpath. As can be seen from the map above this would involve a fair detour though.
By TrainYou could of course always travel by train. Certain GWR services between Oxford and Didcot do stop at Culham. These tend to be geared towards morning and late afternoon commuters, with a couple also stopping around lunch time. It would be wise to check the timetables before planning a trip. Culham station is unmanned and so is sadly not particularly suitable for disabled access though it is possible to cross the line by means of the old road bridge. Check the latest timetable by clicking or tapping on the GWR logo and choose timetable T8.
Please note:When visiting the station members of the public are not allowed onto the old Platform 2 upon which stands the Old Ticket Office. The station itself is operational with fast trains passing throughout the day, so sensible care must be taken at all times to ensure one's own safety and that of others. Children should always be kept under adult supervision. All visitors to the Old Ticket Office do so at their own risk, no responsibility will be accepted by Entikera Ltd. for any loss or injury howsoever caused.
Access into the building and Waiting Room is through a wide doorway and up one small step. The door between here and the inner office is however very narrow and not suitable for wheelchairs. It is possible to cross between platforms step free by means of the old road bridge. Caution should be exercised by anyone doing so as there are no footpaths and it is still open to traffic.
No public facilities of any type exist either in the Old Ticket Office or at the station itself.
