Quite a large shopping mall. Many shops most certainly will please almost everyone's taste and style. Many eateries and cafes too. Decent crowd even on weekends when particularly busy. Clean toilets.

This is one of the largest shopping centre I have ever visited. Could have more shops in it but I am sure you will be tired if you visit every spot in this building. Have fun!

This place really has it all, and bang in the middle of everything Leicester has to offer. Very clean and tidy, was busy but still very spacious. Parked in the John Lewis car park which was quite dear (£7 for 4 hours) there are little cars downstairs that u can hire for the little ones to sit in whilst u... More

Haven't been in a few years and was so disappointed. Many of my favorites shops had closed and some have nothing in their place. John lewis is a great shop but pricey. I noticed so many internet mobile shops!! It does have a great selection of restaurants you can chose from , bathrooms are clean.

I live in Leicestershire so Highcross is convenient for me to go shopping as it has pretty much every shop you can think of plus some outside which are separate from the Highcross (such as Lush, HSBC) Driving into Leicester is somewhat of a nightmare around John Lewis due to traffic lights so for God's sake get there early to...

I did not do a lot of shopping here as I was in London most of my trip to England and did most shopping there. Highcross has nice shops and my wife loved it. I would recommend it as there is a variety of shops to visit for everyone.

This pub is located right near Mosh and is cheap so it is the ideal last pub before heading to Mosh as a student. Warning, there always a lot of old people here as they like to congregate here as they feel at home with their own kind. The steak is nearly always a good choice too.
