Bicester

The historic market town Bicester is situated in the Cherwell District in the northern part of Oxfordshire. The town’s history goes back over a thousand years and many of the buildings are considered as places of historic interest. Visit the medieval church of St Edburg’s, the earliest remaining building in Bicester or take a stroll around the Market Square which comprises parts of the historic town trail.

The countryside surrounding Bicester features green fields and meadows with honey-coloured stone building villages. The scenic landscape offers a relaxed and peaceful environment for walking and cycling tours. Especially the Island Pond Wood nature reserve is worth a visit with a nice circular walk around the wood.

Another highlight in Bicester are the delightful gardens of Garth Park which host a summer programme of music events. Kids particularly enjoy the Garth Park Play Area, with a wide selection of playing equipment to explore.

On the town’s edge is Bicester Village – an enormously popular luxury brand retail outlet with more than 160 boutiques to choose from.
