  • First-time visitor to Rheged, primarily to view the 2016 Cumbrian Artist of the Year exhibition. Impressed with the gallery, a setting that certainly did justice to the quality of the work. Entry to R...  read more »

  • Rheged is a great place. Lovely cafes, great little artisans shops and lots of exhibitions and things to do. There's plenty of parking and a free cash machine inside. Can get a bit overrun with kids but it's great for them with its own soft play and holiday activities.
  • This is a brilliant, albeit unexpected shopping and gallery centre. I didn't know what to expect when we arrived, from the approach it looked more like some kind of bunker but inside I was surprised by some fantastic shops in a splendid piece of architecture, it all complemented the incredible produce and products inside. The cafe served some amazing food and lovely fresh coffee. The prices are a little inflated but the quality speaks volumes. The gallery was another highlight with some wonderful pieces beautifully laid out.
  • Rheged offers a wide range of good-quality activities and amenities: cafes and restaurants, gift and other shops, a delicatessen, a toy shop. It also has various exhibition spaces which what are invariably fascinating and often Cumbria-linked displays. The place is built into the ground rather than being a structure that stands out, so it is an intriguing building with multiple levels and various spaces. Plenty of car parking. A good option if the weather is wet and you need somewhere to go that will fill a couple of hours.
  • An eclectic mix of high end shops, crafts and foods. Reasonable cafes, with limited menus. Various exhibitions on varied themes, handy for those wet days. Parking available, but rough under foot and muddy when wet.
  • Shops and small exhibition centre with cafe and childrens play area. Mostly outdoor/Craft/edible gift type shops which tend to be quite pricey. Exhibition space can be interesting and has charged for entry on the last 2 times I visited. Has been incredibly hot inside on my previous visits despite colder weather outside.
