It's hard to believe there are just 14 days until Christmas – a moment of panic for anyone who hasn't bagged the perfect presents for their loved ones yet. Fortunately, luxury shopping destination Bicester Village is here to save you – pulling out all the stops for the festive season to make the final push even easier. Thanks to the opening of a brand new direct train route earlier this year it's never been easier to get to Bicester, with just a 45 minute journey from London Marylebone to the village, bypassing the crowds that can make shopping in central London such a challenge. Once there, you'll find every brand you could wish for in one place, from Bally and McQueen to Burberry, Coach, Dior and Mulberry, all with significant discounts.

Bicester's signature bellboys will also be donning their distinctive red uniforms to help you with your shopping, providing advice, carrying heavy bags and even holding umbrellas should the weather turn. Added to this, carolling choirs and mulled wine will also be on hand to get you in the Christmas mood, along with a pop-up from Swatch, and new boutiques from Falke and Longchamp. A wintery forest of more than 40 Christmas trees have also been brought to the village, each sustainably sourced from The Tree Barn at Christmas Common in Oxfordshire, who harvest 15,000 trees a year and plant 18,000 more to replace them. 404,000 LED Christmas lights will also be adding an extra layer of festive sparkle, and with opening hours of 9am to 9pm and late night shopping every Thursday until 10pm, your Christmas shopping has never been easier.
