Weddings Ceremonies at Brantwood

Celebrate your special day at Brantwood, the home of John Ruskin from 1872 until 1900. Overlooking Coniston Water with spectacular views of Coniston Old Man, there is no more atmospheric Lake District wedding venue than Brantwood.

Guests are free to tour the House and Gardens.
