  • This is a first class view and a must if visiting the village. You can just sit and relax on the seats provided and take in the peace and tranquility it is lovely.  more »
  • One of the most beautiful views in such a beautiful town. Very calming and a beautiful bit of nature. The walk along the river and down the old 99 steps is also a must!  more »
  • The embankment down to the river Lune has just been cleared of trees and overgrown bushes which has opened up the magnificent view. Just sit and relax while you take in the stunning vista.  more »
  • I truly enjoyed the views and surrounding area's at the top of Ruskin's View with my fellow St Helens group RA when we walked around the surrounding areas of Kirkby Lonsdale. I will definitely be coming here again in the near future to take in the vista's on my next walk. :)
  • I can see why it was described as the most beautiful view in England and therefore the world. Well worth a stop to just pause and admire the view and then drop down the radical steps (they are pretty extreme!) and take the footpath to devil's bridge.
  • What a find Kirby Lonsdale is. A beautiful small town set on the banks of the River Lune.
  • Whilst I cannot confirm Ruskin's opinion that there is "no place more naturally divine" , the view from here never fails to raise one's spirits. A must visit location in Kirkby Lonsdale.
  • Amazing this view. Never seen anything like it before. 10 star's
