Shopping

From the £350 million High Cross shopping centre, to pedestrianised areas offering the unique and the quirky from independent traders, Leicester provides an inspiring shopping experience.

Leicester Market is Europe’s largest covered market with a hive of trading continuing its 700 year history.

The East meets West at the ‘Golden Mile’ of Belgrave Road and Melton Road with Asian spices, clothing and the largest concentration of Indian Jewellery shops outside the Indian subcontinent.

Around Narborough Road a variety of bargain stores, independent boutiques and second-hand shops has evolved catering to its student communities.
