I found the Highcross has a variety of best high street retailers, which all appear to have the most up-to-date stock. It has a spacious feel whilst walking round the upper and lower malls. It also provides a great variety of eateries should you wish to stop for lunch. Parking was relatively hassle free, and the multi-story car park provides... More

Was it a good shopping centre - clean and well lit and well maintained? Yes Was it anything special? No In short if you're in Leicester it's worth a look but don't make a special trip. It's like every other shopping centre in every other major town. In fact locally I'd say the ones on Derby and Hanley are better... More

From The Shires to Highcross.... The hustle bustle is mad as ever.... The old Shires part is cheaper side, and the new highcross shopping area is like a mini designer retail market..... But all good as it accommodates for people from lol walks of life.... Which is pleasing for the highly integrated community. Everything under one roof literally 👌🏽

Got to be the best shopping centre in the Midlands with all the big brand department stores under one roof. The parking couldn't be easier with a huge John Lewis Carpark along side with a covered walkway, meaning you can do all your shopping without the need to bring a coat along.
