Tips & Other Considerations

There may be some variations on the hours of individual shops and outlets in the Meadowhall Centre depending on opening hours of each shop and the particular day of the week.

Always remain alert and aware of your belongings at all times especially your wallet/purse and valuables and ensure they are hidden away from public view. If you have a bag try to use a shoulder bag with a good quality, strong strap, that is put across your shoulder not on your shoulder making it more difficult for anyone to snatch your bag.

Do not leave your bags and shopping bags unattended, this will help to prevent theft and stop you misplacing your bags.

The quietest time to visit is usually first thing in the morning when it opens or in the evenings. Note it can get very busy particularly during busy times such as weekends and holidays, during these busy times visitors are advised to factor in the extra congestion in to their plans.

If you are travelling by car to Meadowhall ensure you are well prepared with maps and Sat Nav to aid your journey, particularly if you are not familiar with the local area and roads.

If you are travelling by public transport, it is useful to check for service updates prior to beginning your journey for any delays, disruption or cancellations to services that can impact on your journey. Ensure you have the service timetables for the trains, trams, buses and coaches. Remember when the last services are and ensure you make it to the train/bus/coach stops well in time to avoid missing the service.
