Sail from Coniston in the Lake District to arrive at Brantwood by ferry. Zigzagging your way up the hill through the seven deadly sins, arriving at the seven graces, going from Dante’s hell to paradise.

The garden is a tranquil oasis, desperately needed by Ruskin, with great views towards the Old Man of Coniston. You can while away many an hour browsing through the large collection of art and artefacts that represents his life.
