Ruskin To-Day is an informal organisation that exists to celebrate the life and ideas of the artist, critic and social reformer John Ruskin (1819-1900). It brings together the activities of the many different societies, academic institutions and individuals who share an interest in Ruskin and in the many different aspects of his work. This website serves as a noticeboard to draw attention to the many Ruskinian events that place across the world.

Since most activities are currently suspended, so is the calendar. However, we are beginning to get news of possible openings, and will be glad to publicise them once they become definite.

Brantwood Gardens & Estate Have Re-Opened!!!

Ruskin’s gardens and estate, Brantwood, Coniston are now open seven days a week with one-way trails, picnic spots, trail guides and activity packs, all delivered in a Covid-safe environment. The Terrace Coffee House and Restaurant is offering outdoor dining and take-away snacks and picnic boxes. We regret that the house is currently closed, though we hope to re-open later in the year. Please visit our website for details and updates.
