John Lewis is a flagship store for Highcross and provides a super shopping experience. Sadly the disappointing standard in the restaurant lets the store down. My wife and I have tried the restaurant on several ocassions. Sadly whatever we choose seems to disappoint whether it is a drink or food. The Cheese Scones for example I feel could well provide...

High cross is convenient and has good car parking and a good mix of shops. Good layout and easy with a pushchair. Having so many shops and food places in one place makes it easier to get different items in one place instead of walking around all day especially with small children

Personally I prefer highcross to bullring, Derby Westfield and Nottingham Victoria center. I think it's the best place to shop on the Midlands. It's modern, fresh and everything u need is under 1 roof (unless ur a regular at primark but that's only a 5 min walk away!). The restaurants leave me spoilt for choice every time. I love the...

Nice modern shopping centre. Very sleek and clean. Great selection of shops - although all the usual chains really. Nothing you wouldn't find in any British city though.

Highcross is a great shopping centre, it's clean, modern and has a large variety of shops including Debenhams, the Apple Store and more. On this particular visit I went to the Apple Store. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgable. Will definitely come back soon.

This is one of the best shopping centres I have been. It has a large variety of shops, both high street and quirky. It is clean and well kept. There are plenty of food offerings. It is in a great location and I shall definitely be going back for Christmas shopping.

Visited on a Saturday afternoon, it was quite busy (unsurprisingly). It had all the major stall and foot outlets, and looked very nice on the eye. I could't help but think though that a Shopping Centre in such an central location could probably use another set of toilets.

Come here on many occasions and it's always a pleasurable experience. Every time I come into the Highcross Leicester the floors always seem clean which is good. There are a great range of shops to choose from inside the shopping centre. Apple, H & M and Top Man just to name a few. There are toilets available for use inside... More

Highcross is an awesome place to go with friends and family. Amazing choice of shops, ranging from H&M to Superdry to Aldo. Good variety of restaurants, including French, American and Italian. Very clean toilets and kind staff!
