- About Oxfordshire
Oxfordshire is located in the South East of England and is supremely well-connected; the city of Oxford is an hour from London and 45 minutes from London Heathrow, the UK’s busiest airport.
The population of Oxfordshire is just 682,000, yet the county has a gross value added (GVA) of £23 billion per annum (pre COVID-19) and is one of only three net contributors to the UK government.
Oxfordshire is the county surrounding Oxford, the city that for centuries has been a global centre of learning and innovation. Today, the region continues its pioneering work in the sectors that are vital for the world’s future health and economic growth.
