Day Trip

Visit to Coniston

The Ruskin Museum, The Steam Yacht Gondola and Brantwood

Tuesday 5th September 2017

On arrival at the Ruskin Museum, Coniston, we will enjoy an introductory talk and guided tour. 

W.G. Collingwood, a local artist and antiquarian who had been Ruskin's secretary, set it up both as a memorial to Ruskin and a celebration of the area's heritage.

Therefore, although the museum has a Ruskin collection, there are also exhibits relating to the copper mines, slate, geology, lace, farming and Donald Campbell. 

After lunch, we take the Steam Yacht Gondola across to Brantwood where a guided tour has been arranged. Ruskin’s former home has a wealth of things to see and do. 

Filled with many fine paintings, beautiful furniture and Ruskin’s personal treasures, it offers a fascinating insight into the world of John Ruskin and the last 28 years of his life spent in the Lakes. 

It also has unique, beautiful mountainside gardens to explore, with magnificent views of Coniston Water and the fells beyond.
