Bag a Bargain

AdvantagesCan really bag a bargain. Attractive environment

DisadvantagesPrices still high, gets really busy.

"Bicester Village is an Outlet Shopping Centre located in Oxfordshire. Unlike some other outlet shopping centres Bicester Village really tries to target itself mainly as a boutique centre with many top-end names rather than more usual high-street stores. It is not far from where I live so I have visited several times over the years and it has recently been extended and now boasts over 120 boutiques. ===Getting There=== Access to Bicester Village ..."

Designer bargains galore

AdvantagesBargain designer clothes, free parking

DisadvantagesExpensive food, outdoor centre, could be a wider range of shops

"...make my annual trip to Bicester Village retail outlet to try and snap up some bargains. •• Location •• Bicester town is about 30 miles from Milton Keynes and 15 miles from Oxford. For those coming in on the M40, it is only 3 miles from junction 9. When you approach Bicester from any direction, there are brown signs directing you to the retail park. It is surrounded by free parking, but even that can get quite full, especially at weekends and sale ..." Read review

Designer Shopping at Not Quite Designer Prices Review with images

AdvantagesPlenty of designer labels at reduced prices, free parking, makes a change from the High Street

DisadvantagesCan get very busy, not as cheap as you might hope

"Bicester Village is probably one of those places you'll never hear of if you don't live close to, or have never been to Bicester. I only found out about it by chance when I was at University and a friend took me there... The name gives no real clues as to just what Bicester Village is, but basically it's a shopping outlet centre, though rather than being all under one roof (such as Meadowhall), or a number of shops scattered around a retail park, ..."

AdvantagesDiscount Designer gear

DisadvantagesTemptation to spend loads

"...gave me a guide to Bicester (pronounced ‘Bister’) Village. I had heard of it but had never been. On studying the guide, I saw that TAG Heuer had a shop there and decided some serious retail therapy was in order. BICESTER WHAT? Bicester Village is a retail outlet, where many designer and high street brands have shops selling end of lines etc at discounted prices. Discounts tend to be in the range 30% - 60% over usual prices. There are a number ..." Read review

Designer Outlet Bootfair for graveyard stock

Advantagesthe guys who clean your car offer a great service

Disadvantagestoo many to mention

"In my opinion, anyone who really cares about what they purchase would find it very difficult to spend money in probably 98% of the stores here. Bond Street designer shops would be ashamed of the products that are stocked in these "designer" outlets. , To be honest the list is endless, however these stores mentioned I am especially familiar with in London and would expect at least reduced prices - if not the sizes. One of the stores above knocking ..." Read review
