Jones was born in Colwyn Bay, Wales. The family home was named "Bodchwil". Jones' father was stationed with the RAF in India and Jones met him for the first time, on Colwyn Bay railway station, when he returned. When Jones was four and a half the family moved to Surrey.

Jones was educated at the Royal Grammar School in Guildford (now an independent school), where he was head boy in the academic year 1960–1; he read English at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, but "strayed into History". He graduated with a 2:1. While there, he performed comedy with Michael Palin, among others, in The Oxford Revue.
