Rheged - The Upland Kingdom Discovery Centre

Named after the Ancient Kingdom of the Dark ages, Rheged is the newest and the largest visitor attraction ever to open in Cumbria.
Rheged is an all weather, all year round visitor centre of national importance. Situated in Britain's largest grass covered building, Rheged's centrepiece is a six storey high cinema screen featuring a dramatic journey back in time through 2,000 years of Cumbria's history and mystery. Rheged provides an inspiring choice for group visits, an exceptional educational resource and a refreshingly different venue for corporate hospitality, product launches and conferences.
There is a resturant and coffee shop, and speciality shops offering the very best that the region has to offer. A tourist information centre is based at Rheged and an outside adventure play area.
