Thermal Scanning

For the well being of our guests and staff, we have introduced a new policy of checking the temperature of everyone before they enter the Village. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Everyone entering Bicester Village is required to have their temperature scanned, with the exception of children in pushchairs. You may decline a temperature scan by not entering the Village. Please click here to view Thermal Scanning locations on our digital map.

We use thermal imaging cameras to scan you remotely as you walk past the camera. When we see a temperature above 38°C, we will ask you to wait in our cooling zone for re-scanning using a handheld scanner.

Unfortunately, anyone continuing to display a temperature above 38°C will not be permitted to enter the Village and we would recommend that they seek medical advice before returning to the Village.

Thermal scanning is conducted in specially demarcated scanning zones, with social-distancing measures observed at all times.

Thermal scanning is not invasive, and the scanner does not emit any energy. The scanning procedure is safe for use by everyone, including children, pregnant women and people fitted with a pacemaker. We may have to ask you to remove eyewear, should you be wearing any.

Only live data is processed. Temperatures and any other personal data in this context are not recorded. For details of how we process your data, please click here.

Due to thermal scanning procedures, it may take you a little longer than normal to enter the Village and so we thank you in advance for your patience.
