Bicester Village – Factory Outlet Shopping

Posted on May 23rd, 2011 in London Factory Outlets,Money Saving Tips,Places To Visit by Stephanie

Ok I know that Bicester isn’t actually in London although I’ve categorised it under “London factory outlets” but Bicester is only a 1 hour drive from London and definately the biggest and best outlet village in the UK so if you’re in or around London and looking for designer outlet shopping with huge discounts, Bicester Village is the place to go!

Bicester Village is open every day from 10am – 8pm on Mondays to Friday, 9am – 8pm on Saturdays and 10am – 7pm on Sundays. It has over 130 brand name boutiques including Gucci, Dior, Anya Hindmarch, Jimmy Choo, Fendi, Burberry and Mulberry to name but a few.

Bicester is easily accessible from London by train or car. There is also a daily coach service from central London direct to Bicester Village that can be booked online here. For more information on Bicester Village Outlet shopping you can visit the website here.

If you’re looking for a Burberry outlet shop there is actually a huge one in East London. For more information on this check out my Burberry Factory Outlet post.

Burberry Factory Outlet

Posted on July 11th, 2007 in London Factory Outlets by Stephanie

I am going to start off with the Burberry Factory Outlet that I went to last week on my day off from work.  You either love Burberry or you hate it (given the chav reputation that it has achieved over the past decade) but personally I am not a Burberry fan but went along because a friend of mine wanted to go there.  I had been there a couple of years before and got there by car which is probably the easiest way but this time we got there by train/bus.

The Burberry factory outlet is really a must-see for all Burberry fans.  It is the actual factory shop and consists of five main rooms holding women’s fashion, men’s fashion, 2 rooms of accessories as well as childrenswear.  Prices are definately cheaper (I bought a compact mirror for £9 reduced from £60) but certain items could probably be bought in the actual Burberry shop sale for around the same price as in the factory outlet.  Most of the accessories are seconds so make sure to check the item carefully for any obvious faults as the outlet does not give refunds on purchases as their policy is “what you see is what you buy”.  The majority of clothes items do not have smaller sizes available so if you are looking for smaller sizes, then it is probably worth phoning them before your trip there to see when they are expecting more stock.

Burberry Outlet Address: 29-53 Chatham Place, London E9 6LP
Telephone Number: 02089853344 (Use +44 if you are calling from abroad)
Opening Times: 10am – 6pm (Mon – Sat), 11am – 5pm (Sun)
How To Get There: Nearest tube station is Bethnal Green on the Central line which is a bus ride away from the outlet, Hackney Central is the nearest main railway station and is a 5 minute walk from there.  You could also take a bus there depending on where you live/stay which may be an easier alternative.  You can go to the London Transport website and use the journey planner to plan your route:
