Discover Bicester Village
Although Woodstock is the ideal hub from which to discover the surrounding countryside, with scenic walks, historic sites and picturesque villages never far away, sometimes you just need to shop!
Luckily, The Bear is located less than 30 minutes by car from Bicester Village. There are no honey-coloured cottages or quaint local antiquities here - but if retail therapy is what you crave, this is the village for you.
Home to over 160 boutiques from leading British and international fashion and lifestyle brands, with discounts on the recommended retail price its USP all year round, this is Shangri-La for those who see shopping as an adventure to be embarked upon with military precision.
The open-air setting, attractive layout and assortment of restaurants, bars and cafes also make this a great day out if you prefer the relaxed approach: browse, pause for refreshment, purchase, repeat.
And if you can’t leave the little ones behind, there’s an interactive Children’s Play Area so kids can have fun while you tag-team-shop. Well-behaved dogs on leads are welcome to shop too. Canine couture, anyone?
