Marriotts, Commercial Property Agency Bicester
Marriotts are proud to provide our property services in the town of Bicester and the surrounding areas of North Oxfordshire. Bicester is recognised as one of the fastest growing towns in the county, and is a popular destination for businesses who require good access to major cities across the UK.
Bicester is perfectly placed on the M40 motorway, with easy access to London and also to Birmingham and the North. Bicester is also closely linked with nearby Banbury – another key enterprising town on the rise. The A34 main road links Bicester with Oxford, and provides a key commuter route to and from the town. As a result, Bicester is home to many residents that work in Oxford, and new housing developments are being built to accommodate for the increased demand.
A History of Bicester
Bicester has a rich and vibrant history, and has always been a key centre for enterprise in the area. A settlement was established in Saxon times, and the first documentary mention of Bicester was in the Domesday Book of 1086. The town gradually expanded over the following centuries and gained more prominence as a location for trade and business. Historically, most commercial activity took place around the central market place, and the importance of this section of town is still clear despite the new developments further out.
In 2008, a major re-development of the town centre saw approximately £70 million spent on a new cinema and major supermarket, as well as restaurants and coffee shops. This was completed in 2013 and gave Bicester another boost in the local economy.
The town is also famous for Bicester Village Shopping Centre. People from across the world visit the designer outlets to the South of the town to acquire the best that fashion has to offer.
There is much opportunity for businesses in and around Bicester, and this means that there are lots of properties on the market. There is a wide choice of locations for businesses of all sizes, and whether you need a large warehouse or a small high street retail property, Bicester can provide.
