Families

intu Metrocentre welcomes children with its spacious, pushchair-friendly malls and lifts, creating a stress-free shopping experience you and the whole family will enjoy. Why not hire one of our free buggies or boobaloos so your children can cruise the centre in style?

Your well-deserved shopping trip needn’t be boring for the kids - take a trip to the cinema, get their face painted or visit any of our leisure venues.

We want you and your family to feel safe when shopping at intu Metrocentre, which is why we pride ourselves on being a Safe Hands shopping centre. We offer a hotline number & free wristbands to assist parents and guardians in finding children who have been separated from them whilst shopping, so you can be reunited as quickly as possible.

Are you planning to visit the centre as a family? Then why not join our free family club? You will receive discounts and offers at some of our retailers, a free gift for your children, a magazine and much more! intu will make your visit to us as a family even more fun!

The Metrognomes are intu Metrocentre’s very own centre characters called Herbert, Sherbet, Maggot and Rusty, plus Rusty’s pet Metroshoposaurus! The Metrognomes entertain children (and parents!) on the malls with free shows and activities during school holidays. Every show is interactive and great fun, with opportunities for young ones to sing, dance and get involved.
