Ruskin Library

The Ruskin Library is situated on the campus of Lancaster University, just south of the city of Lancaster. The collection is a fascinating mixture of pictures, books, manuscripts and photographs relating to the great Victorian writer and artist John Ruskin (1819-1900) who spent his later life at Brantwood, near Coniston in the Lake District.

At least three themed displays are arranged each year: these are mainly of works from the collection, but many also include items lent by other institutions and occasional exhibitions of more modern works. Opening times: Monday Friday 10am-4pm during exhibitions (closed weekends and Bank Holidays)
