Brantwood Museum

Brantwood can be found perched on the shores of Coniston Water and was the home of Jun Ruskin. Today, this Lake District attraction offers an insight into the world of Ruskin and the 28 years of his life spent at Coniston.

At Brantwood, you will find a superb collection of fine paintings, personal treasures and beautiful furniture. The attraction is sure to inspire all who visit, boasting many displays and activities throughout the house, the garden and the estate.

Look forward to walking in the footsteps of many eminent Victorians, including Charles Darwin who visited Brantwood!

After exploring the house, explore Brantwood’s Lakeland estate, comprising 250 acres of land. Find eight unique gardens within the three different areas –  the northern and southern gardens and the lower gardens which are suitable for all.

Afterwards, enjoy the views across the waters of Coniston and enjoy refreshments at The Terrace. This eatery is located in Brantwood’s former coach house and offers sublime scenery as you enjoy a casual coffee, a hot lunch or seasonal dishes!
