Bicester Shopping Village is a fantastic day trip destination. Some pronounce it “Bichester”, others “By-sester”…
It is actually pronounced “Bister”. Bicester village is a shoppers’ dream with 130 boutiques each offering 60% discount all year round.
Where is Bicester Village?
The shopping village can be found in the Oxfordshire countryside, only 60 minutes from London. The full address is 50 Pingle Drive, Oxon, OX26 6WD. The Village is easily accessible by minicab although some shopaholics may prefer to take a chauffeur hire car. The queues to the car park can be horrendous; so booking a minicab could give you more time to shop, rather than having to spend ages looking for a parking space.
The shops and boutiques are exactly what you would expect to find in the world’s best shopping destinations such as Bond Street or Rodeo Drive. You will love the shopping experience with friendly staff and a relaxed atmosphere.
There is plenty to do there, even after you shop ‘til you drop. You can visit nearby attractions with beautiful scenery, stately homes, historic towns and plenty of highly acclaimed Michelin starred restaurants to satisfy your appetite. The surrounding area has British heritage sites such as; Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, Warwick Castle and Waddesdon Manor containing beautiful works of priceless art, furniture and wine collections. Famed Cotswolds towns such as Woodstock, Burford and Bibury are also nearby. With Silverstone racetrack also not far, in case you want to send the boys off while the ladies shop!
When booking your minicab or chauffeur service remember you can plan a whole day around your visit to the shopping village; so make sure you have enough time to visit all the local attractions to keep the whole family entertained.
