Dating back to Roman times, the city of Leicester has a long and varied history which is reflected in its beautiful architecture and ethnic diversity. The city is home to the University of Leicester and the much-loved Leicester Tigers rugby union team. The city offers such a great range of shopping options, it’s hard to know where to start…
Leicester has two main shopping centres. Firstly, the Haymarket Shopping Centre in the city centre which is home to a range of high street stores including Primark, Currys Digital and T.K Maxx. Next is the Highcross Leicester which has recently undergone extensive refurbishment to encompass 15 eateries and over 120 stores, including favourite department stores John Lewis and House of Fraser. A number of designer labels have also been attracted to the newly refurbished centre such as Zara, Hugo Boss and the Apple Store. Label lovers should head down to St Martins and the Leicester Lanes for their designer fix where they will find the best known labels alongside quirky independent retailers. Belgrave Road hosts the so called Golden Mile which is full of stores offering South Asian food, clothing and jewelry. Finally Leicester Market cannot be missed. Europe’s largest covered market, it is packed with a hug variety of foodstuffs, fresh produce and bargains galore.
