Have visited this shopping centre a few times before, on this occasion though i found it dark, poorly lit and with a lot of vacant spaces. The only real draw here now is Pure gym the cinema and the free parking.

Not sure what everyone is moaning about?! If you think it's just like any other shopping centre in any other town or city, that's because it is and if you thought it was going to be anything different then more fool you! I never saw any signs or statements saying it was going to be Harrods, maceys or selfridges! They are not going to build a shopping centre in any town without your usual mainstream stores, not enough rental from the little independents nor security of not going bust too. Free parking, great views and great eating! Nice, clean and tidy and a good range of stores. Granted some I can visit here in leicester but some I can't. Just because brittania is there don't think that the queen shops there!

There are good few eating places here to choose from and you also get a nice view. The shops though are not great, its disappointing and I would not recommend it for this you are best sticking to princes street where I do a lot of my shopping. Cinema is good and quieter too. Its a busy place always, think mostly made up of tourists rather than us locals

If it wasn't for visiting Britannia I don't think we'd have bothered to be perfectly honest.

A very average looking shopping center with a pretty poor selection of shops and the usual tourist tat! We wanted to eat after visiting Britannia but to be honest the choice was poor. We ended up in Frankie and Benny's as the main dining area appeared bereft of food despite it being lunchtime... the best thing about that was we could look at Britannia out of the window and also a submarine!

In short, yes you have to pass through on the way to Britannia but other than that, don't bother, there is far better available elsewhere!

Never really understand why people travel here for shops as the selection is very poor and the restaurant selection isn't much better. We occasionally go to the cinema as it is cheaper on certain days! But as there isn't much else to do, especially late night, we try to go somewhere with a bit more atmosphere!
