With 3,800 acres of beautiful parkland, there's plenty of great spots to enjoy a picnic with friends and family at Clumber Park.

Fill your hamper, add a picnic blanket and join us for some al fresco dining. We’ve got the perfect picnic spots picked.

A family favourite

Relax on the former mansion site or in front of the chapel. You’ll be in easy reach of the main visitor facilities, the woodland play park and close by to the lakeside.

A family enjoys a picnic

If you don’t want to walk far, head to the Pleasure Grounds - only a short walk from the main car park, but you still get to enjoy the beautiful lakeside views and stunning scenery.

There's plenty of idyllic spots where you can enjoy the peace and quiet and natural beauty of Clumber Park. Take a walk around the lake to the south side to find a quieter place.

The woodlands offer lots of sheltered spots to spread your picnic blanket and dine with nature in the great outdoors.

Time for a treat?

If you don’t fancy making your own picnic, our Turning Yard café has a range of home-made takeaway options, so you can pick up a sandwich or salad and search out the sunshine – or just supplement your homemade hamper with a freshly made coffee or ice-cream.
