What is Bicester Like?
Nestled in the heart of Oxfordshire, within easy reach of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds and enjoying ready access to both London and Birmingham, Bicester is a historic market town like no other.
Just over 46 minutes from London and 60 minutes from Birmingham by train, Bicester is a perfect choice for commuters who are looking for a relaxed, friendly town without being too far from the big cities.
Bicester’s close proximity to London attracts plenty of visitors thanks to Bicester Village, an open-air mall and one of the biggest shopping centres in the UK. The Village plays host to a huge array of fashion outlets, making Bicester a popular destination for visitors looking for an exceptional shopping experience without the price tag.
The shopping village ensures there’s a strong retail presence in Bicester, which plays a strong role in the economy and employment opportunities in the town. You won’t find many other market towns boasting employers such as Gucci, Pandora, and Saint Laurent!
There’s more to Bicester than shopping. There are some beautiful examples of historical architecture in churches such as St Edburg’s and St Mary and St Edburga, as well as some more contemporary history in the form of Bicester Heritage, a campus dedicated to historic motoring and aviation, and the Oxfordshire Cotswolds offers endless opportunities for explorers and adventure lovers!
Some of the most popular areas in Bicester include:
- Bicester Shopping Village. Whether you’re looking for discounted fashion or simply a prestige shopping experience, you really can’t top Bicester’s open air shopping village.

- Garth Park is more than just a beautiful green space in the heart of town; it also plays host to a large variety of outdoor events ranging from a Proms Night to a jazz festival
- St Edburg’s Church is a beautiful example of Bicester’s history. Dating to the 12th century, its Victorian stained glass and memorials to local figures means it will appeal as much to history buffs as to those who simply appreciate beautiful architecture.
Bicester enjoys excellent transport links, served by two stations that connect residents with London Marylebone, Oxford, Banbury, and Birmingham Snow Hill. There are plans to add even more destinations, including Milton Keynes, Bedford, and Reading.
Pioneer Square serves as a hub for Bicester’s regular bus services, which can take you to neighbouring Oxford or as far as Cambridge. For drivers, you’re well served by the M40 which puts you within reach of London in less than an hour, or Birmingham in around 60 minutes.

Those looking for an alternative shopping experience will enjoy Pioneer Square, Bicester’s newest shopping centre.
