Why buy a new home in Bicester?
Surrounded by beautiful countryside and filled with 16th century features, Bicester has an enviable mix of fantastic modern facilities and bygone charm. A popular tourist destination because of its fantastic shopping and pretty tree-lined streets, it has so much to offers its residents and is a much sought-after location to buy a new home.
Shop till you drop…
Bicester’s town centre has recently undergone a £70 million redevelopment scheme to expand its existing attractions. There’s a new Sainsbury’s superstore, a new multi-screen cinema and new bars and restaurants for all to enjoy. Living here also means you’ll be close to Bicester Village, the well-known designer outlet shopping village offering up to 60% reductions on an impressive collection of prestigious British and international luxury labels. There’s also a weekly market, a farmers’ and French market, plus Oxford can be reached in around 30 minutes and central London within the hour.
Excellent transport links
One of the reasons Bicester is such a popular place to buy a new home is its enviable location when it comes to commuting. The town lies close to the A41 which provides excellent links to Aylesbury and Oxford. A short distance away, the M40 allows for easy access to London and Birmingham, with both journeys taking roughly an hour. The town has two train stations with Bicester North running to Birmingham and London Marylebone and Bicester Village station running to the West Country, London Marylebone and Oxford. Popular with commuters, London Marylebone can be reached in just 45 minutes from Bicester Village train station. For travel further afield, London Luton, Heathrow and Birmingham Airport are all about an hour’s drive.
A great choice for families
For families with children, Bicester offers a wide range of quality schooling. Home already to two secondary schools and nine primary schools, the new primary and secondary school on the new Kingsmere development will offer even more convenient choices. There’s also an abundance of nature reserves, green spaces and children’s parks in the locality so you can make the most of the outdoors.
Lots to do on your doorstep
Close to the picturesque scenery of North Oxfordshire, the countryside surrounding Bicester is perfect for walking, cycling or exploring by car. Its central location also means Banbury, Oxford, The Cotswolds, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Milton Keynes, Warwick and Leamington Spa are all within an hour's drive.
Closer to home, Bicester’s Bure Park Nature Reserve with its trails and wildlife spotting and Garth Park - home to award-winning gardens, a traditional bandstand and children’s play area – provide open space and fun for all the family.
