Very modern shopping centre featuring many great shops. Apple has a store within the centre which is always worth a look.

I really liked Highcross as there were lots of very large shops there such as John Lewis and Marks and Spencer. Much bigger shops than average with a massive choice of goods to buy. Also a lovely Italian coffee shop with tables outside.

Highcross is home to a variety of shops- whether looking for children's toys or to buy furniture- there is a shop to suit your needs. Highcross has many everyday names but if looking for something special stop in House Of Fraser or John Lewis. It is a great place to stop buy if in the Midlands. It can get very... More
