Picnics at Cliveden

Picnic lunch with salad, fruit and cakes at The Argory

Fill your hamper with your favourite goodies from home, throw in a comfy blanket and enjoy al fresco dining at Cliveden.

A family favourite…

There are conveniently placed picnic tables in the Captain's Field in the Water Garden, perfect for eating your packed lunch at. You’ll be in easy reach of the storybook play area and Maze. The Doll's House toilets are very close too.

Heavy hampers?

If you don’t want to walk far, try the picnic area among the trees in the car park.

Peace and quiet…

There’s a tucked-away glade just outside the car park with tables overlooking the sweeping Russian Valley.

Football, rounders and cricket…

Make your way to the north paddocks, where there's plenty of open space to make goal posts with jumpers, spread out your picnic rug and while away the afternoon.

Shady spots…

The woodlands offer lots of sheltered spots to spread your picnic blanket, or you’ll find picnic tables among the wood carvings at Susan’s Wood near the woodland car park.

Easy to find

Our picnicking locations are easy to find and are marked on the welcome leaflet you’ll receive on arrival. Keen for extra special tips? Just ask in the Information Centre.
