A busy market town, Bicester’s existence preceded the 11th century Domesday Book. It is best known today as a centre for the sale of riding equipment and is home to a major shopping ‘village’. The novels of Flora Thompson which make up her 'Lark Rise to Candleford' trilogy relate to an area close to Bicester. The town centre boasts a traditional market square and has a number of interesting 16th century buildings.
