    THE NEW BRANTWOOD WEBSITE IS IN PROGRESS

    A museum, archive and gallery, Ruskin’s former home has a wealth of things to see and do for the whole family.

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

    Our visitors are free to explore the rooms and house stewards are on hand to answer questions. There are a range of quizzes and activities for children to enjoy.

    While our new site is in progress, view our summary below of some of the activities happening this season at Brantwood. You can also download our latest 'What’s On Guide' by clicking on the link below.
