Oxford is a bit limited for shopping but if you know where to look there are a few options. The main shopping area is centred along Cornmarket and Queen Street, with the two biggest shopping centres, The Clarendon Centre and the Westgate Centre located here. You will find all the normal high street chains such as Next, Marks & Spencers, Waterstones and others. If you are after more boutique style shops you are most likely to find these in Oxford's Covered Market . For designer labels at bargain prices you must make a trip to the nearby Bicester Village, a major UK outlet centre popular with locals and tourists alike, with many bargains to be had.
