In Saxon, Bicester means "the fort of the warriors". Bicester is located in the English county of Oxfordshire. It is about 1 1/2 hours by road from London on the M40 motorway. It started as a small agricultural town and visitors will be able to see many places of interest with Saxon influence to many buildings. There are many interesting places to see around Bicester including beautiful gardens such as the Garth Park which is the showpiece of the Bicester Town Council. Bicester achieved a prestigious Bloom award given by the Royal Horticultural Society in 2008.
