Leicester is my first visit of England. So therefore the first English mall is Highcross. It is large and has a great selection of brands (H&M, Topshop, Next, Pandora, ...). But what I did not find is a food court. I do not know if this is a regular feature of English malls ot if I missed it but I... More

Me and a friend went to watch a movie at the Showcase Cinema De Lux and as my friend went to pay for his car parking he noticed he lost his ticket. He called the operator on ground level to say he had lost his ticket. The operator began asking loads of questions about the car parking tariff at highcross... More

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.

i had a dreadful experience in the restaurant today and will not be returning. I purchased a dry tuna baguette which fell apart and had no butter along with a far too frothy half full mug of Latte coffee. Staff had 'JL Catering' logos on their uniform, I'm not sure if all areas were looked after by this company? I... More

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

The mall is big and the facade is fantastic, but we couldn't find anything special to buy. Probably our expectation is high, but from that big mall you expect some thing great to buy. The only thing we bought was chocolate from hotel chocolate which were really tasty.

This place gets absolutely packed on a Saturday which I'm not overly keen on. However, there is a good range of shops including three department stores: John Lewis, Debenhams and House of Fraser. I would like to see more eateries. The ones on the ground floor become far too busy by lunchtime however, John Lewis and Debenhams both have good... More
