Other things to do:

Whilst we love railways, we understand that not everyone does, so here’s just a few things other members of the family might like to enjoy while you’re at the show:

Bicester Village: if retail therapy is your bag, Bicester Village is a fantastic shopping experience, with more than 160 boutique and world leading brands (less than 2 miles away from the show).

Bicester town centre: Bicester is a lovely market town which has a history dating back to Saxon times. Why not have a wander round and enjoy a bite to eat in one of the local shops?

This will be like no other show the association has staged before not only featuring the best of gauge 1 but as with all good birthday parties we’ll be inviting all our friends from the worlds of model railways and model engineering.

Bicester Heritage has become a hub for the world of vintage cars, motorcycles and racing and offers us a fantastic ex RAF hanger in which to stage what we hope will be a truly great celebration of our 75th anniversary. Keep your eyes on your NLJ and on the website for more details.
