This Year's National Picnic Week Top Spots to Take Advantage of!

National Picnic Week is upon us, so we are giving you a helping hand to find the perfect picnic spot to relax at on a sunny afternoon with your family or friends.

We’ve tried to make these picnic spots even better than last year, and places that will please the whole family! “We’re really excited to release our chosen picnic spots for 2015, they are beautiful places that all ages can enjoy. We tried to choose places that really capture Britain’s history and scenery which makes an ideal location for a picnic. My personal favourite is Aira Force, an amazing waterfall in the Lake District.” said Adam Cox an organiser of National Picnic Week.
