Come explore the fantastic outdoor play area where your little ones can discover a huge Roman Fort, magnificent Celtic roundhouse and even try to get to the top of the mini climbing wall. If the weather is a little chilly then head inside to the soft play area for just as much fun for all those under 1.37 metres! Make sure you don't miss the largest 3D cinema in the North-West, showing the best kids films all day, every day.
You can even explore your artistic side at the centre’s special Pottery Painting area, giving you all a chance to create your own pottery masterpiece! Start by selecting from the beautiful ready-made pots and paint them into a work of art with a selection of bright colours. Don't worry about having to wait long for your magnificent piece, it’ll be baked and ready to take home within an hour.

From breakfast to pre-theatre menus, with plenty of cake in between, the Rheged Café specialises in simple but imaginative dishes inspired by our favourite Cumbrian produce. Their own beef and lamb takes pride of place on the menu alongside Lancashire cheese, west coast fish and breads from Staveley’s artisan bakery More? – their sourdough toast is just the job with our bestselling Cumbrian breakfast. Children’s menu is also based on these fine, fresh ingredients, and our child-friendly dishes mean we see a lot of clean plates.
Pod Café: Food 10.00—16:00 Coffee & Cake 10.00—17:00 You’ll see the centre go by as you relax over a coffee and a newspaper, or try one of our hot pies, soups or Cumberland sausage rolls. Everything is made in our own kitchens and sold at the counter; on sunny days, our customers love to pick up a salad or wedge of freshly-baked cake to eat outside the centre. Children can select a sandwich and some favourite snacks to create their own picnic lunchbox.
