In recent years, Bicester Heritage has established itself as a thriving automotive resort, encompassing a wide array of specialists, media outlets, and events for both historic and contemporary vehicles. And now its expansion is poised to continue further with the addition of a 344-room hotel designed by Dexter Moren specifically for motoring enthusiasts, pending planning permission approval. The building will be situated beside Bicester’s airfield test-track and a Mille Miglia-style starting ramp, and will feature a four-story atrium optimised for the display of automotive-themed exhibitions. And you shouldn’t be concerned about the contemporary building looking out of place on the historic site – it will be built from materials inspired by the current buildings and feature numerous design nods to the site’s military history.
