Last weekend I headed to Bicester Village for a mini shopping spree. I hadn’t been to Bicester for about three years, so it was great to see how they’ve expanded it and added more stores. The shopping village is now the home of Burberry, Gucci, and Dior outlets.
It’s a great day out, but I didn’t buy a thing. Each of the outlet stores stocks products from last season which is supposed to make everything slightly cheaper. However, you’re still looking at spending £250 per product, as the stores are so high end. I would have loved to walk away from Bicester with a Mulberry bag or a Burberry coat but my finances wouldn’t allow me to splash out that much.
Definitely head out to Bicester Village if you have some real money to spend. But it’s not somewhere that you can go to for your Christmas shopping. You could always go to Bicester for a visit and then head to MK, as I did, for more affordable shopping.
I did spot these amazing telephone boxes though…
