Cycle Route, free entry
Explore the canal towpath from Meadowhall into the centre of Rotherham. On the way you could call in at the award winning Magna Science Advenure Centre.
You can return on the same route or use the train.
The Trail also runs west from Meadowhall into Sheffield on a surprisingly green route along Five Weirs Walk (a further 5 miles). This is mostly off road, with some quiet road sections that would be suitable for older children - just watch out for the giant spiders on the cobweb bridge!
Open all the time
Duration: 2 miles each way plus a further 5 miles each way into Sheffield.
