The mall has lots of shops and stores. I went during the weekend and it does get busy. So if you have time during the weekday maybe go then instead of the weekend. But it's also a great place to hang out with friends on Saturday or Sunday. They sell Krispy Kreme doughnuts there which is amazing. Excellent mall.

really good quality of service, especially from a girl called Bethany. She had obviously been at college just before this and was wearing knee high boots that must have been painful! but she pulled through like a proper trooper! Also, very good prices for the clothes. Will definitely be visiting this shop again.

Vast array of shops. You may come out poorer but you won't come out empty-handed. If you like shopping then this is the place for you.

Highcross is a marked improvement on Shires. Those of you who have been around in Leicester long enough know exactly what I mean. Although Highcross isn't like the Bull Ring in Birmingham it is still the nicest and biggest shopping centre in Leicester. There are a lot of restaurants in St. Peter's square and nearby is St. Martin's square for... More

First time visiting the shopping centre, I was surprised how big it was, it has all the shops you need and department stores, there is a cinema and just outside there are lots of restaurants. Lots of parking but you do have to pay for parking.

Highcross shopping complex is quite compact. There are more than 100 branded shops that includes Apple, John Lewis, House of Fraser, Debenhams, and Next. Once, you get into the shopping complex, you will have many choices. Parking for two hours is £3 seems expensive especially when you waste a lot of time to find a parking place.
