Things 2 Do in London: Bicester Village!

If you love shopping, you will love Bicester Village! It’s a chic and cosy shopping area with Discount Outlets for many many Designer Brands: Matthew Williamson, Gucci, Temperly London, DVF, Juicy Couture, Ralph Lauren, Luella, Burberry, Anya Hindmarch, Mulberry, Vivienne Westwood, Ted Baker, Bally, Valentino, D&G, Dior, Salvatore Ferrigamo, YSL, Fendi, Versace and many many more…

It’s a great place to snatch a bargain, such as a classic LBD or a classic bag… Ralph Lauren & Burberry are the most popular spot for Q8y’s… no matter what time of year i visit, i must MUST find at least one q8y family in those two stores shopping -and staring shwaya-

The village is very cute, every outlet is in a little slanted roof store and all the stores are side to side… just walking in the village is quite joyful!

and it’s never boring! Every few months you would go and find the stores have switched places… or new places have sprung up! Always take a new copy of the village map whenever you go!

Juicy Couture is one of the newest arrivals in the village… Pringle of Scotland is there if you are a fan…

If you don’t want to buy discounted clothing, how about books? Or home items? Bodum, Villory & Boch, Descamps, The White Company, and Cath Kidson are there… Cath Kidson is right next to Starbucks so you would be able to shop in style with your favourite cup of coffee…

I love sitting in Pret-A-Manager which is located chock in the middle of Bicester Village… You see how people are resting with their bags… i rest with my favourite lemon pot and my hot chocolate… enjoy the sun rays and catch my breath ❤

Villandry is the place to have lunch if you like rustic food… i personally can’t part from my beloved Carluccio’s but many Q8y’s love Villandry as well…

Now why did i choose a picture of some ice cream for the post? Because it’s the most important thing you must DO when you are there… they have this…

Amorino Gelato Naturale… Allah yaho Gelato! You cannot resist it… it’s so YUM… it’s the most delicious ice cream in the UK, hands down!

That’s my sisters…

That’s mine stolen by Butootee while i snap this shot… unfortunately they stop selling it during Christmas Time which is very very sad…

We usually spend a full day in the village shopping until your arms are too tired and too full to lift any more bags… you know it’s time to leave when it gets dark or when they close :p

Bye Bye Bicester Village! We will visit you again next time we are in the UK insha2 Allah 🙂

    i like your blog and everything. Bas elsara7a your “UK” and “london” posts are getting old.. Too much of everything isn’t nice. I heard some people making jokes about you and calling you “british” and even though i didn’t like what they said about, i think you are giving them an excuse to say that about you!

    other than those posts, i like you as a blogger.

      Thank you hon for the sentiment but i couldn’t care less about what anyone thought of what i post…
      This is my blog, my diary, my memoirs, my own guide and my writings… no one has to like it and no one is forced to read it… they can joke about me all they want but all i have to say is kaifi 🙂

      Besides, i have so much left to write about 😉 i am not done pouring my memories on my blog yet 😀

    I expected you to “etzeden” your posts about UK when you read my comment which is what happened lol
    Not everyone knows how to take criticism in a cool accepting way, i think you get too defensive 🙂

    Anyway you are right. It’s your blog. We don’t have to read it.

    Shaikha, check out http://www.bicestervillage.com/en_GB/
    you will find how to get there by car/train, personally i (we) went by car and i would personally recommend that so you can buy leisurely and be dropped right off where you want with your bags, it costs around 100 quid so if you’re a party of 4 it works out great at 25 a pop

    Danderma: when did u go, what date and time? it looks EMPTY! it can’t be in July, can it?
    ana 3ala neyeti re7t on Easter Sunday i think, or the Monday after, all i can remember is it was PACKED – like how you hate Avenues on a weekend? like that, so needless to say i did not make the most of it ;[
