Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Ruskin Museum

Coniston's 'superb museum... is the most thought-provoking in the Lakes,' (Rough Guide). The award-winning all-year attraction tells 'The Story of Coniston' in imaginative, interactive style. Highlights include the textbook geology of Coniston Fells, their coppermines and slate quarries; the husbandry of smiling Herdwick sheep; the intricacy of Ruskin lace; the skills of drystone walling; the Boy's Own hero Donald Campbell, killed attempting 300mph on Coniston Water; and the sheer genius of John Ruskin, artist, critic, pundit, radical political economist and reformer.
