If you’re still wondering why you should choose Bicester Village, along with Westfield London and Buckingham Palace, you’ve landed in the right place. Read ahead.

Bicester shopping village

Yes, Buckingham Palace oozes luxury as well but how Bicester Village stands apart is its unbelievable savings. Loved by those torn between “I want to buy everything” and “I really need to stop” — Bicester Village is luxury at its totally affordable.

Guide to the Bicester village

Fab fest

Lose your hearts in as many as over 160 fashion boutiques featuring famous brands from around the world including Vivienne Westwood, Balenciaga and Salvatore Ferragamo among others. Nevertheless, the rustic setting of the boutiques only adds to a relaxing shopping experience.

Fashion feast

What was started as a one-stop-shop for all sorts of luxury shopping is now focussed at becoming much more. With quaint little cafes and eateries lined up in every corner, it’s now a holistic attraction catering to a perfect weekend getaway. Delight the foodie in you with exclusive Wiener Schnitzel and Coq au Vin from Café Wolseley, a must-visit restaurant in Bicester Village. Nothing beats the feeling of grabbing a cup of coffee with your gal pal after a long day for endless gossips and people-watching!

Christmas shopping

Lucky enough to have a lot of friends looking forward to having you as their secret Santa? You love them but afraid of letting your wallet rest in peace? The perfect cheat sheet is to shop at Bicester Village during Christmastime! The lit-up stores and prices cut further will make up for a heavenly Christmas fest!

Reaching here

Bicester railway station

On a side note, even the Bicester Village Station is one of the best places to hang out while you’re there. You can reach the Village by taking trains from locations such as London Marylebone and Oxford, arriving steps away from the Village’s boutiques and restaurants. Now that two direct trains are operated from London Marylebone every hour, you’re just 46 minutes away from this shopping paradise! The ticket fare is around 34 US Dollars. Trains also run from Birmingham Moor Street to Bicester North Station where a shuttle bus will transfer you the short distance to the Village. Ready to shop? I think I can hear you saying:

Bicester Village is not about shopping for the sake of it; it’s about celebrating in whole the wonderful ritual of shopping. Now or whenever, we, Pickyourtrail would love to help perfect your shopping expeditions in the United Kingdom. With end-to-end follow-ups and services, you will surely feel pampered!
