Ruskin Museum, Museums Coniston, Cumbria - England where to go, what to see and where to stay in Wales


Coniston Cumbria England
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.
