How to get to Kennington Village Centre, OX1 5PG ... 

Exit A34 at Hinksey Hill Interchange to join Oxford Ring Road (A423) eastbound.  At roundabout at top of slip road follow signs for London/M40/Cowley.  Within a few hundred yards of leaving the roundabout take the slip road towards Kennington.  Take the next turning right.  Follow directions through the village (see below).
Join the Oxford Ring Road heading south on A4142 towards A34 (Abingdon/ Newbury).  Continue on the Ring Road, past BMW and Sainsbury, until you reach the traffic lights at Kennington roundabout  (near Park & Ride).  Stay on the Ring Road (now A423) but very soon after the traffic lights take the slip road to Kennington.  Turn left at the T-junction and follow directions through the village (see below).
From A423, drive through the village for approx ¾ mile until you see The Tandem pub on the left.  Kennington Village Centre is directly opposite (blue front doors).  The entrance to the car park is a few yards further along on the right, alongside the Social Club next door.
