I've been to Bicester village about 5 times over the past 5 years and it always disappoints me. Probably because I'm from London and I have the access to all the sample sales, dress agencies, pre-sales and seasonal sales with extra discounts thrown in, but I find this outlet way overpriced. There are all the big name brands all right,... More

I recently visted Bicester Outlet village and thoroughly enjoyed myself. I found that the parking, contrary to other reviews I had read, was sufficient and not to mention free! The whole place is clean and beautiful, I visited on a sunny day which was lucky since everything is outside. There are loads of top designer outlets but the prices are... More

An outlet near oxford, uk. Nice selection of famous brands for men and women. For foreigners be sure to ask for the VIP card for 10% further discount. Also ask for the VAT tax refund to collect the refund at the airport. Some brands have further sale so be on the lookout :) great restaurants too. Free parking is available.

We visited on Easter Sunday and after expecting lots of queues and a wait for parking, we were pleased to see none of either. We parked quickly and it was nice and empty so it meant we could browse easily, making the experience more fun. We were however disappointed that a few of the big name shops were shut -... More

We decided to make a quick visit here today on a detour from Kent on our way back to Cheltenham. There are so many 'label' shops, to which lots of people flock including many tourists, which I have to admit is not really my scene. Mercifully our visit was not very extended. They could really do with a quality (i.e.... More

BUT there are a number of bad things that you have to cope with:-... More

Bicester village was meant to be an outlet shopping venue. It is very pricey and caters to a certain market and pocket. Now really only accommodates for tourists and private number plates. It is enjoyable for a visit but it's too busy to feel comfortable walking around

Went on a girls trip to Bicester village, we stayed in the Oxford malmaison hotel and we received a voucher for 10% off in all shops except Prada. Like another reviewer we struggled to use it as most shops would not take it and left us feeling disappointed . Would be better not to give at all or say that... More
