What better way to unwind after a busy shift at the hospital then to change into something comfortable, pack up your picnic basket and head out to your nearest green space to enjoy an alfresco lunch or dinner?
In-light of it being National Picnic Month, we have written a blog that includes some great picnic locations across Hampshire and London:
If you’re a garden lover, visiting Mottisfont and its famous walled rose garden will be the ideal picnic location. During July, the scent from the roses is at its peak and makes for a lovely, and often romantic setting.
This stunning National Trust location is also famous for its roses – over 90 varieties! - and offers a rose trail, with leaflets on offer to introduce you to the very best displays around the area. A perfect place to pitch up, lay out a decadent spread and sit and enjoy your food, and maybe a glass of bubbly.
This park, located south of Brixton, is a great place to work up an appetite pre-picnic. You can take a splash in the Brockwell Lido, play a game of tennis, or just enjoy the stunning views and pretty ponds. Then, ‘set up camp’ on one of the many grassy lawns, and chow down!
Kew Gardens is one of the most picturesque choices in London for alfresco dining! You’ll have lots of choice – from woodlands and lawns to the formal garden and the banks of lakes – all will offer a stunning backdrop to your picnic. Plus, you don’t need to worry if it rains, as you can just find cover in a nearby greenhouse and admire their range of exotic plants.
Here, you’ll be surrounded by breath-taking views of the city as you sit and enjoy your sandwiches or salad at Primrose Hill, which can be found on the north side of Regent’s Park. The sunset views are a must-see too, during the summer months.
