Coniston is also the final resting place of Donald Campbell; The Ruskin Museum in Coniston plays host to his memory and that of the famous Bluebird K7.
Coniston is liberally sprinkled with cosy pubs dishing up tasty fare made from top quality local produce. Just what you need after you have scaled 'The Old Man'.

The once rural community of Coniston has lost none of its copious charm. It has successfully avoided over-commercialisation and development to remain as attractive to visitors today as it was in the Victorian era.
