Home to H&M, Next and TopShop, the Waterside Centre has just undergone a £9 million refurbishment. The main entrance to the centre is on Lincoln’s High Street, which runs the length of the city centre, from Steep Hill down to South Park, with retailers and eateries to suit everyone’s tastes. New brands to have opened in 2014 include Jack Wills and Joules and the food offer includes everything from Carluccio’s to Starbucks.
The High Street is also home to services such as banking, and branches of all the big names are to be found here. Just off the High Street is the Cornhill, home to the city’s two markets, Sincil Street Market and Central Market. Blending into one for many, the pitches are home to a host of different products and services. From key-cutting to fresh fruit and vegetables, the markets are open Monday to Saturday, 9am to 4pm.
The St Mark’s retail development at the southerly end of the High Street is home to a number of large retailers and homeware stores including Lakeland and Debenhams. As it spreads towards the university, it meets other retail parks along Tritton Road.
