Meadowhall is a large shopping centre located three miles northeast of central Sheffield, England. Built on the site of a derelict steelworks, it was opened in 1990 and was widely blamed for the closure of many shops in Sheffield city centre and in the nearby town of Rotherham. At the time of opening it was the largest indoor shopping centre in Europe.

Meadowhall is situated next to the M1 motorway, between Sheffield and Rotherham, and lies on the Sheffield Supertram route, in the shadow of the Tinsley viaduct. It forms the end of the Five Weirs Walk. Detractors have nicknamed it "Meadowhell".
