Is it time you had an Afternoon Tea in Bicester? What are you waiting for? This lovely Oxfordshire town has much to offer visitors – including, of course, lunch!
It lies some 12 miles north of the county town of Oxford, near the Buckinghamshire and Northamptonshire borders. Also relatively nearby are the settlements of Kidlington, Brackley, Buckingham, Aylesbury and Witney.
Bicester has, in recent years, developed at a rapid rate. In fact, it is one of the fastest-growing areas of the county. Its history dates back to at least the Saxon era.
It wasn’t until the Domesday Book of 1086, however, that the first records of its existence appeared. During this time, it went by the name “Berencestra”. The name “Bicester” didn’t surface until the 17th century.
Hundreds of years later, the First World War led to the establishment of a nearby airfield, which remains in use today.
Those who wish to keep their feet firmly on the ground, meanwhile, might prefer visiting an Afternoon Tea Bicester venue.
