Your indispensable guide to local attractions

2016-07-14-Bignell-blog-AttractionsChoose Bignell Park Hotel and experience some of the best summer activities that the area has to offer right on your doorstep. Here are just a handful of some of the best local attractions:

Blenheim Palace

Explore the architecture and renowned gardens at Blenheim Palace in the summer sunshine. A World Heritage Site, this stunning baroque building is over 300 years old and the landscaped parkland is lush with greenery. Catch the miniature train to see the Pleasure Gardens and experience the beauty of the exotic butterflies at Butterfly House.

Bicester Shopping Village

Grab some bargains at the Bicester shopping outlet where you’ll find designer outfits at high street prices. The outdoor shopping area is brimming with a variety of British brands, eateries and cafes to keep you busy for an entire day. Why not make a visit to find a pair of dream Jimmy Choos or an elegant Gucci handbag?

Bodleian Library

A fan of Harry Potter? Visit Oxford’s Bodleian library where the movies were filmed! One of the oldest libraries in Europe, this 11 storey building contains 3.5 million items and is a reader’s paradise.  This summer there’ll be an exhibition on the best of Shakespeare’s plays.

Woodstock Open Air Pool and steam train ride

Take a dip in the outdoor pool to cool off when the sunshine strikes. Perfect for kids, this family-friendly lido includes a toddler’s paddling pool and grassed picnic area. Or for those kids who prefer a spot of travel opt for a steam train ride at the Buckinghamshire Railway Centre and have a picnic on the lawn.

Return to Bignell Park for a spot of afternoon tea at The Oaks Restaurant to re-fuel on freshly made scones, cakes, sandwiches and an assortment of hot drinks. Then finish off the day by putting your feet up in our two acre landscaped garden and outdoor patio area.
