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

This village really is a "Designer Outlet Village". All the others I have ever been to have only had the usual high street names there. This place has the big designer names as well as some of the high street stores (although not many) that you would expect to see. Due to the nature of the stores there it is... More

Very disappointed. Firstly, after a 90 minute drive, it took a further 20 minutes of circling the carpark to find a space. The place was packed, the customer service extremely basic in all stores I visited (probably because the place was just far too busy for the staff to deal with effectively), and shopping in DKNY felt like I was...

We were nearby and thought to try it. We probably won't bother again.Very busy with children's buggies loaded with carrier bags and squalling babies. I don't really understand who could afford to be buying so much. Unlike some of the other 'villages' the shops are very up market. Food outlets are basic and packed . We had a VIP ticket... More

On a positive side the facilities and look of the village is really nice. However parking is a joke with no clear signange. Queueing to get in shops is not for me. Overall the whole place is very pretentious, parents buying their children £1.5k tag heuer watches or £200 shoes. I am a 27 year old professional, earning a very... More

We visited Bicester Village last year and dropped by again on a trip to London. As the New Year sales were on the place was heaving. It took some time to find parking as we had to go to the multi story car park. Bicester Village does focus more on designer brands and it is those shops we went to... More
