Gondola – Cruise and Talk

Gondola – Cruise and Talk

Details

Enjoy a cruise across Coniston Water on the historic Steam Yacht Gondola in the fascinating company of National Trust curator Harvey Wilkinson. Harvey will give a celebratory talk focusing on the unique characteristics of the Lake District that helped achieve the new World Heritage Site Status. He will also look at John Ruskin’s role in establishing both the Lakes and Venice as important places in our culture. It’s an open ended talk with a chance to discuss and ask questions, but also a chance to sit back, relax and enjoy a cruise in the elegant setting of our Venetian-inspired boat.
