Walking Permit Application

Visitors to Wytham Woods will be asked to show their permit. Permits are free and last three years; you can apply for one using the link below.

Once your permit has expired, please apply for a new one in the same way.

By applying for a permit, you are agreeing to abide by our rules:

  1. No dogs*
  2. No cycling
  3. Permit holders are required to carry their permit
  4. Permit also covers the partner of the person to whom it is issued, and any persons accompanying them. It is not intended to cover parties of more than 6 people. 
  5. Abide to our opening times of 10am until dusk on weekdays. (Weekends dawn until dusk).

Permits may take up to two weeks in busy periods and will be sent by post.** Please note that we are currently only able to send permits to the UK and overseas applications will not be processed.

For access with a wheelchair or large pram, please email the office on wytham.woods@admin.ox.ac.uk to receive necessary gate codes.
