It’s nice and clean with all the big city centre standard shops. It’s missing some family activities though. The contemporary decor goes nicely with St Peters Square. Although Leicester has lost lots of its history there is still a nice mix of old architecture and...More

This is a nice shopping centre with a good range of shops, not the generic choice offered in other shopping centres. The centre is airy and the temperature is good. I like the little cafes in the centre of the aisles- Krispy Kreme, etc. Good...More

There’s loads of good shops and the centre is well laid out. Outside is a great food area with lots of choice with a big car park connected to John Lewis. All makes for a great shopping/day out
