Luckily Tripadvisor has listed some of the best indoor things to do when it’s raining in Sheffield so you don’t have to worry about keeping the kids entertained even if the weather isn’t on your side.
1. Weston Park Museum
Set in a beautiful park, the museum is free and there is lots for the family to do and see. There is also an indoor picnic room, if the weather isn’t good enough for you to sit outside! Weston Park is the largest museum in Sheffield and features lots of different exhibitions, including ones from the city and ones about things much further afield like Ancient Egypt.

The huge shopping centre is one of Sheffield’s biggest indoor attractions. There are plenty of things to do with the family at Meadowhall, from eating out at the food court, to catching a film at the VUE cinema or being adventurous on the trampolines at Jump Inc or climbing walls at Rock Up. You may also just want to stock up on summer essentials, or take part in one of the family-friendly activities they sometimes have going on during the holidays.
