“Christmas shopping”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Topped up once again by visiting the clarkes village. Few new additions such as the musto shop, still a bit on the expensive side but a few bargains. The best to be had on this trip were in the Osprey shop, got two leather make up bags for £7.50 each and four purses in suede for less than £7 each. Couple foldaway shoppers in the Radley shop so did quite well. Better half bargains to be had in Timberland and Gap, bite to eat and off home. Would definitely recommend a trip here, theres plenty of shop options to suit everybody, Childrens play area and if hubby gets fed up on the main st can get a pint!

“Nice day out”

A beautiful day to spend less money to buy lots of things, especially Clark's shoes, they are so comfortable.
There are some restaurants and bars to have a little snack or lunch.
The WC are clean.

“Not a bad place to go if you want to kill time...”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

My partner and I went to this Outlet Village on Monday. It was the first time we visited this Outlet Village, we normally go to the Bicester Village (near M40) as it is the nearest Outlet Village to us.

Anyway, the reason why we decided to go to the Clarks Village is because we were visiting a family member in Teignmouth, and this village is on our way back to Midlands. The overall experience at this Outlet Village was average. We managed to buy 3 t-shirts from the Gap store and few other things at the Crabtree & Evelyn store (where the girls there were very friendly and helpful).

I don't think we will rush back to this village at time in the near future.

The other thing is worth to mention is, Clarks Village charges for parking (fair enough it's £1 for 1 hour, £3 for up to 5 hours and £5 for over 5 hours), but Bicester Village is free to park.

“Everything you need”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

This was definitely a superb shopping experience with a good variety of shops and little competitions and things for kids and grown ups. It has a great park for kids with a timber fort and a number of eating spots with lots of outdoor seating. The high street is just round the corner and there are various exits to it. The bus service is excellent and runs regularly and can be caught just opposite one of the exits. There is also a car park just behind it with toilet facilities. Late summer closing day is Thursday and shops stay open until eight pm and open on Sundays too.

“Well Worth a Visit!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

A good variety of shops, with some good bargains, if you're prepared to hunt for them. The whole site is well laid out with lots of outdoor seating for snacks. The food venues have improved a great deal over the last year or so and you can enjoy a meal now in pleasant surroundings. The high street is only a stone's throw away if you want to buy food for a picnic or have a pub meal. Several restaurants are open after the shops close but if you intend having a meal after shopping, make sure you park in the right car park or you could end up being locked in as several are locked at 8pm.

The car parks do get busy so an early start is advisable during the summer months when there are lots of visitors in the area.

If you have time, the shoe museum is worth a visit and there is a play area for children, a merry-go-round and a Cadbury shop for treats.

All in all, a pleasant outing in a well kept area which all the family can enjoy.
