The Smart Approach
Book a personal shopping consultation in the newly renovated personal shopping suites. The suites are private spaces that al- low for discreet, bespoke, and personalized interaction during the personal shopping experience and are available as a service free of charge to all guests.
If you’d like to upgrade your experience to the most superlative level, available by invitation only, is the luxury Apartment in Bicester Village. The Apartment is a private space to unwind, enjoy refreshments, revel in purchases, or take part in a personal shopping consultation. Five-star hospitality, courtesy of expert teams comes as standard, but it’s where these services meet style that the concept really comes together. The spaces in The Apartment capture the magic of the sur- rounding region, taking influences from local culture in the form of colour, flowers, art and interiors. The Hands-free Shopping allows you to shop till you drop & relax while the team collects and packs all your purchases ready for you to collect at the end of the day.
Café Wolseley is an all-day café-restaurant, which offers halal options, inspired by the iconic London flagship. Combining British heritage with European grandeur, The Wolseley is one of London’s most admired restaurants in the heart of Mayfair. If you prefer pasta, visit the newly opened La Tua Pasta which makes their fresh pasta nightly in the outskirts of London, before being delivered to your plate.
If you feel like one day isn’t enough or you’d like to sleep on your new investment decisions overnight, the nearby The Old Parsonage Hotel is ideal. Oxford’s 17th century Old Parsonage combines original charm and character with all the luxury, amenities and technology available to an independently owned 5-star hotel. Best known by locals and visitors alike for its eclectic country house charm, chic modern interiors and striking 20th-century portraits, the Old Parsonage is a luxury home-from-home with impeccable hospitality.
The Stop Off
Just a stone’s throw away is Soho Farmhouse – worth a stop for dinner before you head back to London.
