Event description


Secure your place now as we open our gates for a guided tour of the Graven Hill development.

The new custom and self-build community at Graven Hill sits in the Oxfordshire countryside roughly an hour from Birmingham to the North and 45 mins to London in the South. The 188 hectare site encircles a hill covered in beautiful mature woodland with breathtaking scenery and an abundance of wildlife.

We get tantalising views from the adjacent roads but since work started on the site it has not been possible to get a closer look. Yet behind the scenes there has been a hive of activity. For the past year, teams of workers have been busy enhancing the natural environment, planting trees, creating a lake in the Gateway Park and re-homing the newts as well as providing the essential infrastructure. Work is well and truly underway to allow us to welcome our eager band of self and custom builders who are ready to begin constructing their dream.

We are delighted to be able to share this progress with a select group of people who would like to be part of the Graven Hill vision. A small number of guided tours have been arranged, starting in September. Places will be strictly limited so make sure you register for your place before they are all gone.

What to expect on the day

If you are one of the lucky few, on the day of the visit we will convene at the Graven Hill Plot Shop in Bicester's Pioneer Square. We will board a minibus which will take you and your guide around the Graven Hill site to see for yourself the beautiful British countryside, ancient woodland and the building works in progress, before bringing you back to the Plot Shop for the chance to ask the team lots of questions.

Spaces are reserved for those with a genuine interest in being future residents of Graven Hill so if that's you, register now and take the first step on your custom or self-build journey.

Please note, when registering for tickets you will also be added to our email list to be kept up to date with Graven Hill news. If you don’t wish to receive these emails you can unsubscribe at any time.

Do I need to bring anything?

Just bring yourselves and your imagination!

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the Plot Shop?

Parking is free for 2 hours in the Sainbury’s multi-storey car park with a third hour available for a small charge. Bicester Village and Bicester North train stations link the town directly with London Marylebone, Oxford, Banbury and Birmingham Moor Street (and many places in between).

Can I meet the tour at the Graven Hill site?

We have arranged a minibus for this tour which is departing from the Plot Shop in Bicester town centre. Access to Graven Hill is exclusively reserved for those on board our minibus as the site is a working construction zone and health and safety is our primary concern.

Can we get off the bus and explore?

The Graven Hill site is a working construction site undergoing large-scale works, for that reason, access is strictly monitored and controlled. It is not possible for members of the public to walk around on the site under any circumstances. Our visit will take place from the safety and comfort of a minibus.

Are there minimum age requirements to join the tour?

As spaces are so limited, we can only offer this opportunity to those over the age of 18.

Can I have more than 2 spaces?

Due to the level of demand, at this stage we can only offer 2 spaces per family.

Who can I contact with any questions about the trips?

If you have any questions call us on 01869 396 070 or email
