The Bicester Village outlet shopping centre houses approximately 131 stores, encompassing a range of product categories. Bicester Village is now established as a tourist attraction, as well as being the United Kingdom’s leading designer outlet village. In 2001, it was able to charge stores the highest rental of any comparable shopping centre in the UK.
The shopping centre is located just off the main roundabout which brings the A41 into Bicester. Bicester Village is served by two railway stations: Bicester North and Bicester Town. There is pedestrian access from Bicester Town Station to Bicester Village along a path, and a shuttle bus service from Bicester North.
As of 2012[update], plans are afoot to expand Bicester Village by a further 30 outlets. The scheme would involve the existing Tesco store being demolished, with a new Tesco superstore constructed at a different site nearby. This would create approximately 500 new jobs to Bicester Village.
