Deddington lies 6m/9.5km South of Banbury at the junction of A4260 and B4031. Several bus routes pass through the village; the main bus stop is in the Market Place, where there is also limited parking space.

Market PlaceDeddington Circular Walks form a figure of eight, the two loops meeting in the Market Place. They offer a choice of quite different routes, embracing the villages of Hempton to the west (5.5m/8.5km) and Clifton to the east (6.5m/10km). Each offers optional short cuts. The routes are signed and described in an anti-clockwise direction, though they can be walked either way. Both are essentially rural, featuring typical rolling north Oxfordshire countryside with several fine extensive views. From the ridge on which Deddington is sited they bring you down into the fields and pastures of the Cherwell valley or those of its tributary streams forming the parish boundaries, with South Brook to the south and the Swere to the north. Ground conditions can be wet and muddy, especially in winter, so stout footwear is advisable.
