Towns & Villages
Bicester is one of Oxfordshire's most attractive market towns. And, every Friday, the charming 16th century market still turns into Bicester's bustling focal point (with delicious locally-sourced produce available from the monthly farmer's market).
Bicester is also ideally located as a base for exploring the stunning North Oxfordshire countryside. You're within easy reach of the picturesque Oxfordshire Cotswolds – offering some of the most stunning scenery in the South East.
Those looking for a little retail therapy are spoilt for choice in Bicester Shopping Village – a huge open-air outlet mall. With over 3 million visitors a year and dozens of discount brands on show, it's one of the most popular shopping destinations.
Things to see and do in Bicester...
- Shop till you drop at the Bicester Shopping Village, one of the biggest outlet shopping centres in the UK.
- Stroll through the immaculate 18th century gardens and along the meandering River Cherwell at Rousham House.
