Park on the roof, it only costs £2.50 for two hours and you can get a lift straight down into the shops.

Visited here for a bit of retail therapy. There aren't too many shops here but the ones they have are well stocked and quite a good selection of different kinds. All the staff were friendly.

We usually visit Leicester once or twice a week and we really like Leicester, but Highcross is definitely one place to avoid, especially if you were thinking of parking there.

Very dirty shopping centre and not many shops. Only big chain stores. Don't waste your time driving there if you're from out of town. Parking is very dear too!

Great place to shop because of the wide array of stores. It also has a wide selection of restaurants. But, to echo a previous comment, it could really benefit from air conditioning. It was very warm in there, which limited the amount of shopping I could do because I was so uncomfortablely hot.

great selection of shops in a bright and clean environment. unfortunately after a while it simply gets too hot- why can't shops have air conditioning in this country? Toilets not very well signposted but once found were clean and queues moved quickly. lots of eating choices.

Lovely place to shop. Particularly impressed with the outside food area, feels like you are on holiday abroad!! :) We ate at Frankie and Benny's which was our first experience there! Loved the cocktails and the food was great! Would definitel recommend. Special mention to our Waiter Karlos who made our experience especially enjoyable! Thanks.
