Brantwood offers a fascinating insight into the world of John Ruskin who spent the last 28 years of his life at Coniston. The house retains the character of its famous resident with many fine paintings, beautiful furniture and Ruskin’s personal treasures.

With its many contemporary exhibitions, concerts, courses and special events, together with its education work in the wider community, Brantwood continues in the Ruskin tradition today.

Although you can access Brantwood by road you can also experience arriving at the jetty via a launch on the lake.
