Enjoy picnics across the Surrey Hills this summer

Up your game from munching ham sandwiches and drinking a flask of tea. Now's the time to fully embrace the joys of eating al fresco. From sumptuous feasts to shared platters, picnics are a marvelous way of enjoying the summer with family and friends.

Enjoy eating al fresco at Limpsfield Common

It's easy to find your special place at Limpsfield Common which has such a wide variety of landscape. Woods, open heathland, fields, and the high viewpoint of Scearn Bank all offer places for you to shake out the rug and open up the hamper. And there's plenty of space for a game of hide and seek, or frisbee afterwards.

Things to see and do at Denbies Hillside 

With its south-facing slopes, Denbies Hillside is a perfect picnic spot for friends and family. Use the picnic tables at the top of Steers Field or shake out the rug, unpack the hamper, pour out the drinks and enjoy the views. Plenty of space for a game of frisbee or cricket afterwards.
