Britain's Top Picnic Spots Revealed

It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for! The National Picnic Week team are proud to announce the locations that have made the definitive guide to spectacular picnic locations in the UK!

After travelling the length and breadth of the UK, sampling the culinary delights of this fair isle as we went, we’ve finally established just which locations you can’t afford to miss for the perfect picnic.

From the golden sands and crystal clear water of Barafundle Beach to the incredible views from Top Withens Farmhouse in West Yorkshire, the supposed inspiration for the Earnshaw family house in Wuthering Heights no less, these picnic locations showcase exactly what makes this country so beautiful.

"We’re so excited to announce our list of the best picnic locations in the country. Picnics are loved by British people because of our desire to get out into the Great Outdoors and the British countryside never fails to provide a stunning location for you to tuck into your sandwiches.

I’ve been lucky enough to visit a number of these stunning locations and I really can’t recommend them highly enough. What could be better? Sunshine, sarnies and scenery – the perfect combination!"
