I love highcross when I want to shop for high quality goods for low prices. I always shop at Highross when ever I shop for either Christmas, birthday etc gifts. I love at Christmas the kids get to have a quick picture and present from Santa every year. All my gifts are wrapped and packed. I really do recommend Highcross.

I love the Highcross centre, its very clean and spacious, good shops and plenty of places to sit and ponder or people watch. The Christmas decorations are very good. There are plenty of eateries inside the centre and just outside in a court yard 'ish area. A good cinema too. Its really worth a visit when coming to Historic Leicester... More

How can you possibly down-revue a place that has everything to offer under one roof It might be worthwhile to shop around though as maybe one place will be cheaper than another Just try not to be over impulsive in there otherwise Mr Bank-Manager will smugly send you a credit card bill that will not match your household income What...

Lots of variety at this centre. More higher end stores as well as high street favourites. Any that were not there were outside in the rest of the town centre. Restaurants our just oustside the exit to, ate well and shopped lots to.

Don't get caught with the parking on site there is plenty of places nearby that charge all day parking for the same as highcross charge per hour. Even Westfield Stratford only charge max of £5. Save some money and walk an extra 2 mins. The car park is empty bar two months a year and they still get why.

There is a pizza place that just opened next door to the Disney shop on the bottom floor of the high cross, you can't miss it, opposite Gregg's - the front is made of glass. Their pizza is made in 180 seconds! It tastes amazing and when I say amazing, it really is amazing - the service is good to... More

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