Patrick Drake’s Picnic Picks

Sadly, the Summer is yet to make any meaningful appearance, however, us Brits are a stoic bunch and a Great British Picnic is the perfect opportunity to get together and enjoy good fresh, seasonal food with family and friends, even on the rarest of sunny days!

The English countryside is so beautiful in the Summer and so I have teamed up with Zipcar to bring you the top 5 locations from all across the country to pitch your perfect picnic! See the video below for top tips for picnic food too.

In front of Kenwood House on Hampstead Heath. With swimming ponds and Golders Hill Park Zoo nearby, it’s a great location for a family day out.

West Wittering beach in the Summer months is just like being on holiday. Sunshine, a blanket, and a hamper full of your favourite treats is all you need!

South West
Under the big tree, and a bit down the hill in Clifton Park, Bristol. It’s slightly tucked away (off the suspension bridge) but worth the walk, as you can see across the whole valley.

North East
Roseberry Topping in Cleveland is beautiful. There’s a bit of a climb to the top but the view is amazing once you’re up there!

South East
Dedham is perfect for a romantic picnic in the English Countryside! Hire a boat and row downstream to Flatford Mill where you can stop for a picnic along the riverbank, and enjoy homemade buttery scones from the cottage tea rooms – which are too good to be true!
