Picnic season is just around the corner, and the promise of some warm weather and positive vibes is something that we’re all yearning for. So, we’ve decided to put together this guide on how to find the best spots in town before suggesting the perfect outfits. Ready to get your picnic on?
Where to go?
For the most stunning view of London, head to Greenwich Park. The gorgeous scented rose garden is an experience itself, and you can even catch a glimpse at the deer that call ‘The Wilderness’ home. If you haven’t brought a picnic with you, there are plenty of cafes and eateries around Greenwich Park, so you’ll undoubtedly find something that takes your fancy.
Alternatively, you might be keen to visit Regent’s Park Zoo, one of London’s most iconic sites. Just outside the zoo, climb into a pedalo and enjoy being on the water while taking in the stunning sights around you. When you’re back on land, make sure you head over to Queen Mary’s Gardens for a quaint spot to unwind.
Yet another popular picnic spot in London is Alexandra Palace, locally known as Ally Pally. In addition to beautiful outside spots, there’s a Tarzan-style swing, a Go-Ape course, and a Garden Centre to keep you busy. If you visit on a Sunday, you can enjoy delicious food from the Farmer’s Market, bringing you delicious sweets and savouries from local producers.
