Bicester town centre

Bicester Farmers' marketThe town of Bicester dates back to the seventh century following the establishment of the Augustian Priory in the late twelfth century. The town soon became recognised as a prosperous business centre for the surrounding agricultural area.

Today it is one of the best locations in the country for a wide cross section of business, with an attractive pedestrian shopping area and plans to transform the town centre

There is a wide variety of house types available to buy and to rent, excellent education and training organisations and proximity to funding networks in Oxford and London.


Bicester maintains its market town atmosphere today with a market still held every Friday in the Market Square and Bicester's Farmers' Market held from 8.30am - 2pm every second Thursday in the month in Sheep Street.


The main shopping area is an appealing pedestrian thoroughfare, with a variety of shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants. The town centre has evolved over the years: many of the shops are still family run businesses although there is a growing number of multinationals appearing on Sheep Street.
