Unbeatable shopping under an hour from London
For the shopaholics among us, a destination filled with designer shops, boutiques as well as plenty of restaurants and cafés sounds like the ideal day out. Plus, when you book a stay at Cheval Three Quays or Cheval Knightsbridge, we’ll give you a £50 gift voucher, a VIP discount card that you will worth a further 10% off the already low prices and a Hands Free Service where they’ll keep your purchases for you to collect on departure, all to be enjoyed at Bicester Village.
The world-famous Bicester Village is home to over 160 boutiques from leading brands offering savings of up to 60% off recommended retail prices, and is visited by an astonishing 6.6 million people each year. The village is located in the idyllic Oxfordshire countryside, and if you travel by direct train you’ll be able to enjoy the stunning scenery en route, taking just under an hour. One of the best times to receive these offers (and more) is during Golden Week.
Golden Week takes place from the 24th September to the 14th October 2018, and is based around a Chinese holiday that’s been a fixture of the calendar since the early 2000s. The most adventurous Chinese journey on long-haul flights to destinations around the world, and shopping is an important part of their itinerary. Top of their lists are luxury goods — the handbags, shoes, watches and expensive clothes which, because of stringent Chinese taxes, are about 30% more expensive in their home country.
To celebrate, Bicester Village is treating its customers (from any country) to additional savings of up to 20% in participating boutiques.
For these customers it’s not just these luxury goods; they can also enjoy a selection of dining outlets. At Bicester Village, the options are excellent and varied, from elegant, refined dining at the newly opened Café Wolseley and seasonal dishes at farmshop restaurant & café, to healthy, wholesome all-day dining at the relaxed and low-key Le Pain Quotidien Restaurant. There are also light bite options and coffee shops threaded throughout the shopping village, as well as exciting pop-ups, carts and street-food kiosks selling ice cream and the latest street food trends, allowing you to graze and snack throughout the day.
However, Bicester Village is not just about shopping. It also offers culture with the opening of a new exhibition from 13 September to January 2019 in partnership with the Tate galleries. All under one roof, visitors can experience the world of art, technology, bespoke digital printing and exclusive art-themed gifting. This will allow art lovers the opportunity to shop and experience Tate outside of its four iconic galleries.
Don’t forget, by booking directly with Cheval Knightsbridge and Cheval Three Quays, you can enjoy a £50 gift voucher, a 10% VIP discount card and a Hands Free Shopping service where they’ll keep your purchases for you to collect on departure.
