Away from Amman: Bicester! let's go shopping

Located in Oxfordshire, about an hour's drive from London, is the small town of Bicester and its factory outlet. If I am not mistaken it is the closest to London - not 100% sure though. You can reach it by train as well, departure from Marylebone train station and then there are shuttles to the outlet or an express bus from several places in central London. It's one of our favorite shopping places in the UK and with the years it has grown nicely, it has 130 shops from Dior, Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Jimmy Choo, but also Villeroy & Boch, Bose or Bvlgari. I tell you shopping heaven - you name it you have it. I got the most amazing Hugo Boss jeans for £25!

We had lunch at Villandry, a french bistrot, with a lovely atmosphere, really good and fresh food.

When you have finished shopping and if you are driving you could always drive the 15 miles to Blenheim Palace; it is a World Heritage Site and the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill. We haven't been, but it looks amazing and the gardens as well.
