Throwing a picnic together and venturing into the great outdoors is a great option for a spontaneous day out – whether you’re visiting one of the places that we care for, or even just heading to your local park.
Both adults and little ones can benefit from spending a bit of time out in nature, whether you’re taking a moment to listen to the birdsong, or letting the kids burn off some energy with a run-around. With the promise of a tasty picnic, you’ll have no problem getting the whole family out to explore.

Think local and seasonal
Reduce your food miles by eating fruit and veg that’s in season, rather than imported from another country. For extra points you could try growing your own.
On your bike
Add to the adventure by walking or cycling to your picnic spot. A bit of exercise will help work up an appetite, and you’ll cut down on car emissions too.
Leave no trace
If you end up with some waste after your picnic, make sure to take it away with you. Don’t leave leftovers for local wildlife, as it may not be good for them.
