Located just off the A41, you won't miss it as there's signs everywhere directing you to the shopping village.

You'll also notice a Tesco Superstore - this was actually located next to the village however due to the expansion of Bicester Village, it's now located opposite.

Address: 50 Single Drive, Bicester, OX26 6WD

Valet Parking & VIP Card

When driving to Bicester Village you have the option to park in their multi-storey car park or use their valet parking.

On this occasion - due to the snow and cold weather, I used the Valet parking and also got a VIP card which gives you an extra discount on most stores - just double check for other promotions in stores before using.

Valet Parking - Book 12 hours in advance. Drive & drop-off your car and call around 15 minutes before collection to make sure your car is ready.

Theme & Decor

Every so often, Bicester Village follows a theme and adds some new decor and during my latest trip to the village, it was the Chinese New Year and to celebrate - it was decorated accordingly.

To make things even prettier - there were fairy lights dotted around and due to the cold weather (and snow) lovely fire-heaters around the seating areas too.

With over 160 high-end designer and fashion brands, you're spoilt for choice!

Before doing any shopping, I tend to walk around the village for a little bit,  admiring the window displays (and cringing at some outfits) generally seeing if anything will catch my eye.

Then I stop and sit for a coffee (and cake, obviously) before working my way through my favourite shops.

I normally don't find anything I like in Ralph Lauren however this time, I found a few things for my family and friends - spot the shopping bags.

After, I had a little look in Versace and spotted some gorgeous pieces (perfect for summer) which I shared on my Instagram stories before making my way to Ted Baker and seeing a little surprise too! 🙂

Ta Da!

I spotted the dress I wore in this post here for the Ted Baker Summer Wedding Guest Campaign!

It's so cool finding pieces you wear from different campaigns as it brings back so many wonderful memories that I'm extremely grateful for.

Secret Garden Cafe

I hadn't been to Bicester Village in a while and this was my first time visiting the Secret Garden Cafe and I have to say - the coffee & cake was delicious!

It's a quirky cafe as it follows an outdoor-indoor garden theme (hence the name) with things being served on plastic trays and even the spoons are made out of wood!

Secret Garden Cafe 

A really lovely cafe and a nice change from the normal coffee-shops that we know. Serving a variety of healthy options and even yummy cakes too, here's what I ordered!

Orange & Polenta Cake: Super yummy, slightly dry but a cake that I'll definitely have again as it was light and fresh!

Coffee & Walnut Slice: If you're a fan of coffee cake, you'll love this! Perfect to enjoy with your cappuccino.

Carrot Cake: Sprinkled with walnuts, this was a lovely carrot cake - not as nice as my mum makes it but a lovely version nonetheless 😉

My Purchases - Coming Soon

Luxury Shopping: Bicester Village – Designer Outlet Shopping in Oxford

As I've mentioned above, I got a few bits and pieces from Ralph Lauren.

For me, amongst other shops - I also visited Hugo Boss after their window-display caught my eye. I made some great purchases which you'll be able to see on here very soon! 🙂

(A little note, womenswear is on the upper floor in Hugo Boss, Bicester Village)

When it comes to designer-shopping, the experience is quite different as you've often got a personal shopper. After looking through the clothing and making my selection, (to try on) I was also given different colour and size options to try, making sure see I felt comfortable in the clothing.

All the items which I purchased are key pieces that can be styled and worn all-year-round.

Lately, I've noticed that my shopping style has started to change - for the better.

I'm now looking at key pieces and if I really like something - I'll buy a couple of colour options too. (Hey big spender!)

Ah, so that was quite a long post but I hope you all enjoyed it! 🙂

Like I've mentioned above, there's a lot of articles on the way including plenty of outfit & accessory features too so make sure you keep checking back for all the latest.

After sharing things on Instagram and on Instagram stories, many of you messaged saying that you love Bicester Village so I'd love to hear what your favourite brands are and what you look for when it comes to shopping at designer brands.

    I’ve heard so many people talk about Bicester Village, I feel like I’m seriously missing out! I never realised just how many different brands they had either – definitely a great spot to grab some bargains!

      Ah thank you Emily – I love Bicester Village and definitely recommend visiting, even if it’s just for a coffee. The environment is really lovely, especially if it’s a sunny day but as you can see – there’s heaters in the cold too so it’s always lovely haha x
