Europe's latest fave rave: Kidlington

Jump to last reply

Kidlington, halfway between central Oxford's medieval grandeur and the Cotswolds' honey-coloured thatched cottages, isn't exactly pretty. Most people who've travelled by bus or car from Oxford to Woodstock or Burford will have passed it without noticing, and no-one who has noticed it will remember anything about it.

Till now.

Suddenly, it's being over-run by Chinese tourists (it's also en route from Oxford to Bicester Village discount mall) - and no-one knows why.

The most common explanation seems to be they're trying to meet the locals.
