Anyone who knows me will know how much I love Meadowhall. So much so that I visit at least once a week, whether that’s with the kids or just for a spot of window shopping by myself. As a Sheffield girl born and bred, it’s somewhere I’ve spent a lot of time over the years. I remember going to spend my birthday and Christmas money there as a child, so many visits to the cinema, the Disney Store, and Lush! And it’s safe to say that Max and Evie love spending time there just as much as I did when I was their age.
We were all really excited when Meadowhall got in touch to see if we’d like to go and spend a family day at the centre. So we worked together to come up with a fun filled itinerary for the day. Read on to see what we got up to…
First on our agenda was a trip to Vue cinema. We’d actually been there the week before to see Jungle Cruise, which is excellent by the way! This time we watched The Croods 2: A New Age, which the kids thoroughly enjoyed. Of course before we headed in we stocked up on lots of snacks and drinks. Popcorn is an essentially part of any cinema trip for us.
Next up, we went to Hamley’s toy store, which has to be the children’s absolute favourite shop in Meadowhall. And I have to admit it definitely brings out my inner child too. Here the kids picked a toy each, Evie ended up with a rather cute cuddly dinosaur and Max chose an LOL Doll. Before we left we had to have the obligatory photo with the giant Hamley’s teddy.
We then had a wander over to The Barkery, by Frenchie Frenchie. This is relatively new to Meadowhall and somewhere we hadn’t been to before. Frenchie Frenchie started out as a dog cafe and bakery in Mansfield but has recently opened a couple of Barkery kiosks selling tasty dog treats. We picked out a couple of wuffles and woofnuts (haha!) for our dog Poppy, which she absolutely loved.
For lunch we went to Three Joes, which was another place that was new to us. They make the most delicious sourdough pizza and also have a great kids menu. I had the whole ball buffalo mozzarella pizza and the honeycomb sundae for dessert which was so good!
Our final stop of the day was to Rock Up, somewhere the kids have been to a couple of times in the past and have always enjoyed. The children are set up with their harnesses and given a safety information briefing first. Then they get 30 minutes to climb as many walls as they like. Some are more challenging than others. Both Max and Evie managed to make it to the top of a few of the walls. They were so brave, I know there’s absolutely no chance I could do that!
We had such a fun day at Meadowhall, the kids really enjoyed it. It was the perfect end to the summer holidays and we can’t wait to go back again. The highlights for the children were Hamley’s and Rock Up, we are very lucky to have both of these at Meadowhall. And for me it has to be lunch at Three Joes, the pizza was amazing, as was the service.
Thank you so much for having us Meadowhall!
