About Utopia

Now in our tenth year, Utopia returns to the idyllic Eynsham Hall in Oxfordshire for a special anniversary event with an extended programme of events. This is your unique opportunity to meet a variety of cast and crew from Doctor Who’s rich 54 year history in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

As well as the usual stage panels, autograph and photo sessions and evening entertainment, we also run a series of smaller interview/discussion or live commentary sessions with your favourite guests. These will provide a rare chance to get up close to the stars in an informal environment and are strictly limited to only twelve attendees per session.

Eynsham Hall

Hotel and Venue

Standing proud amid over 3,000 acres of rolling parkland, Eynsham Hall is a shining reminder of a time gone by, and provides a perfect retreat into elegance and luxury just a few miles from the centre of Oxford. The Hall has a fascinating history starting in the early 1700’s when Willoughby Lacey, a wealthy local landowner, decided to enclose a huge section of his land in order to create the ultimate space in which to entertain guests, and pursue the popular outdoor sports of the day.


How to get there

By car

Eynsham Hall Country House Hotel and Conference Centre Oxfordshire is not in Eynsham, but North Leigh, situated on the A4095 between Witney and Woodstock.

Alternative postcode for SAT NAV is OX29 6SL

By train

There are regular direct trains from London Paddington (which passes through Slough, Reading and Oxford).

Hanborough train station is located 3 miles away from Eynsham Hall, in the nearby village of Long Hanborough. This station has no taxi rank, but local taxi firms can easily provide service to and from the station. The number 11 and the number 242 Stagecoach buses also have nearby stops on the main road to the left of the station.
