We decided to visit here spontaneously and I must say I was very impressed.I really enjoyed the whole shopping experience and the value on offer at some of the top designer outlets is incredible. Picking up Ralph Lauren polo shirts for £30 cannot be sniffed at. Would I visit again? Most definitely.

Bicester Village is a very well known designer outlet close to Oxford and is day trippable from London. Indeed, there are specific coaches that offer transport from London. It has generous opening hours, and a large free car park although don't let these two things fool you. It is best to visit in the week, or to arrive early on... More

Get here early, car park spaces are at a premium... If you find one keep it! Sadly Musto has closed and gone but Cath Kidson were good. It was packed with coach tours who enjoy the tax free shopping. Loos nice but busy with molten brown soap. Restaurants so packed either book a table or head into Bicester.

I liked the layout of the village, it reminded me of an outdoor American mall. You will definitely need your credit cards here, I found one or two bargains (Kipling and Pandora) but other shops were massively short on bargains. We went on a rainy day and the flooring was very slippy - this could do with being looked at.... More

Great place to shop.......but must have a plan and know what you are after, otherwise you end up entering every shop,browsing and by the time you have lunch almost all day is gone and you end up with something just so justify your trip there. I tend to go often, but always in mind what I need and want to... More

Love this place so much, even tho its a trek from where I live, it's worth it for those serious label obsessed bargain hunters amongst us!! It's the closest the UK has to the kind of outlets they have in the states, you'll grab discounts on the regular high street price and if you search hard enough you'll find a... More

We had read the Trip Advisor reviews and it seems a trip would consist of it being a nightmare to park followed by jostling by a mass of rude foreigners and then finding everything too expensive. Having such low expectations, the actual experience was pretty pleasant. Finding parking was not immediate but not as nasty as I had thought it... More

Mixed review because of our mixed experience. We went as it was raining and on our way home. The lunch in the restaurant was excellent (quality, portion, speed and friendly service). The parking was atrocious with attendants either ignoring you or sending you into dead ends or areas where there were no spaces. Shops aren't quite as varied as they... More

Many designer outlets offering goods at a reduced rates. Does get very busy and would recommend arriving early as parking is difficult. Restaurants also get busy and are not cheap, but this is a designer village and so something visitors should expect.
