  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

Join in with the spirit of the Jubilee on the Vista in front of the House. We're celebrating the occasion with picnics and outdoor fun.

Bring your own or enjoy a spot on our huge red, white and blue picnic blanket (subject to availability) which has been lovingly handmade by visitors and the local community.

Don't worry if you haven't time to pack your own picnic, our café will be open as usual selling savoury and sweet treats (including our popular scone cream tea) for you to take away and enjoy.

If you fancy an ice-cream to top off your picnic experience, head over to the blue Snugbury trailer.

Thank you to everyone who has made squares for the blanket appeal. The overall blanket will be split into smaller blankets and donated to local charities after this event (details on charity to follow).

N.B This is not a bookable event. Space on the charity picnic blanket is subject to availability and cannot be reserved.
