A to Z of Leicester: H is for...

Highcross

We used to have to go to Nottingham for a good shopping expedition. Now we have our own fabulous shopping centre called Highcross, which is only a street away from the ancient Anglo-Saxon market also called Highcross. Nothing changes much.

A quadragintal is a blog of exactly 40 words.

  1. Nice you have a good shopping center. Our little Virginia town doesn't have one, so most people need to drive 45 minutes to another town for shopping. Like your photos and the name Highcross.

  2. Nottingham, Leicester! Wow, sounds so exotic to this Canadian girl. Truth be told I love shopping almost anywhere, but across the pond is a must at some point!

  3. Yes the shopping centre is certainy something to be proud of and a far cry from the C & A, M & S and Lewises of my day - but I'm glad the market is still there.

  4. I wouldn't recognise Highcross now. It must be 50 years since I was there last.
