Bicester is renowned for being an excellent place to shop with people travelling in from London with empty suitcases, ready to fill up after a day’s shopping in Bicester. Here is our local shopping guide to all the wonderful local shops in Bicester:
To start, we have to talk about the place that has made Bicester a true shopping lover’s favourite destination – Bicester Village.
Bicester Village is an open air shopping centre in the heart of Bicester, surrounded by the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. It has over 150 boutique stores carrying the world’s most luxurious designer brands.
Offering year round savings at all the boutiques, Bicester Village draws many visitors. It even has its own railway station!
Definitely one for the ‘must visit’ list.
Along with the fabulous Bicester Village, Bicester has a lot of small businesses, too. Don’t miss these out when you next visit us!
First of all, Robinson’s Antiques is an amazing local shop which sells beautiful antiques and collectable items.
Owner Ian Robinson has worked in antiques since childhood and brings a wealth of knowledge to the shop. So you can know that the items on sale are the best he could source.
One of Cinch Storage Bicester’s amazing customers, we are very happy to be able to help Ian and his store to grow and thrive to become the wonderful, local shop it is today.
Secondly, there’s Coles Books, which has been a part of Bicester for 30 years. With thousands of books on offer (and hundreds of thousands on their websites) Coles Books also has a monthly book club and a part of their website dedicated to Bicester and the community.
This is truly a local shop which caters to everyone within the local community but is also a beautiful place for tourists to visit, with a warm friendly welcome given to everyone.
Situated in Pioneer Square, make sure to give Coles Books a visit.
Bicester Bean Coffee Shop & Cafe
After a couple hours of shopping, you will be ready for a coffee and some lunch.
Bicester Bean Coffee Shop & Cafe is a brilliant spot to do just that. Just a short drive from the town centre, it has a large selection of breakfast and lunch options on offer.
Or you could treat yourself to one of their lovely afternoon teas.
Signature Flowers is the place to go if you are in need of a beautiful bouquet or flower arrangement.
Creating beautiful arrangements for weddings, birthdays, Mother’s Days, they are also wonderful for treating yourself to some beautiful flowers simply to brighten your day.
Located in Market Square, Signature Flowers is led by Head Florist Emma Clarke ICSF after she took over the shop in 2017. The Signature Flowers team is small but with a combined 70+ years of florist experience, they are definitely the place to go for beautiful flowers.
Treat yourself today.
The Blue Texel Farm Shop
Situated on the outskirts of Bicster, The Blue Texel Farm Shop is still only an eight minute drive from the town centre.
With over 60 years farming experience, The Blue Texel Farm Shop has a great deal of quality produce on offer from home-cooked pies, stews and curries.
And on their deli counter choose from homemade sausage rolls, pork pies, scotch eggs and cheeses which have all come from The Oxford Cheese Company.
The perfect place to stock up on all your after-shopping snacks.
We hope you have enjoyed our local shopping guide for the beautiful market town of Bicester.
