Went there for the first time and I'm so glad I went. Loads of designer name for a fraction of price, I couldn't believe how cheap some of the stuff was. Defiantly going again!

More outlets than ever before with more parking. A great place for picking up designer goods at reduced prices. Nice setting with a choice of restaurants

There is a lot of top designer shops here, if you want an end of season bargain go here, bose is a great shop and you save a lot of money if you are happy with a factory refurb. Michael Kors most friendly staff helped me find a small white bag as a surprise for daughter who loved it. Very... More

Not quite to my expectation, a little bit intimidating as i noticed to the staff of the shops they will look at you from head to toe but once they see you with a shopping bag on hand they are more friendly and accomodating. The friendliest staff are from guess and michael korrs shop- they accomodate you nicely even if... More

I tend to visit a couple of times a year as I can stay not too far away. I wouldn't visit so often if I had to travel from London. Each time we visit there seems to be one fewer high street shop - there used to be Monsoon, Jigsaw and Coast but not any more. Not cheap as such... More

Lots of people rave about Bicester Village but we were disappointed. The bargains are no better than the sales in the local shopping centres and Cruset, for example, is cheaper to purchase in TK Maxx. if you are travelling from outside the EU, the place is worth a visit as you can have your tax refunded onsite so the prices...

If you have too much money and no idea about how to get a good bargain then this is the place for you. We ended up taking the 10 minute walk into Bicester Town Centre where there are proper shops where real people go shopping. Suggest you visit the Town not the Village.

It's an outlet, the car parks full but free, lots of people mainly of Arabic origin who arrived in a limo or on a coach from London, lots of posers and bored housewives, footballers wives, lots of designer brands and nannies, got the idea! Worth a look once I suppose but not my cup of tea....

If you are used to the American outlet malls, this might be a little bet smaller but still a very good one with variety of options My advice,,, if you are planning to spend less than a week in London, it does not worth wasting a full day going yo it unless if your main reason for the visit is...

We were fortunate to come here on a sunny day and we arrived reasonably early so were able to get a parking space without queueing. We did not make a special trip here but called in on our way. This is a pretty outlet shopping area - it is laid out like New England chalets. There are no covered walkways... More
