Bicester Village Shopping


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 and one of the biggest outlet shopping centres in the UK. 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 do in Bicester

  • Enjoy a scenic and challenging round of golf at the highly acclaimed Bicester Golf Club.
  • Stroll through the immaculate 18th century gardens and along the meandering River Cherwell at Rousham House.
  • A short trip across the M40 lies Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Bicester Tourist Information Centre is located in Bicester Village, where you can pick up a local historic trail guide that leads you through the town and market. Guided tours are available during the summer months. Bicester Village shopping mall is open every day, except Christmas Day. In December 2014 Bicester was announced as the location for a new garden city.
