Picnic with the whole family at Upton House

Families picnicing on the lawn

Here are a few suggestions for a good picnic spot on your next visit. Pack up a feast, or simply have an ice cream and enjoy some alfresco eating at Upton this summer.

Find the perfect picnic spot

Under the shade of the Cedar trees on the south lawn is very popular. Those with a more compact lunch can make it all the way down to the bog garden lawn by the fish pond.  Or if you are after a bit more seclusion, try the Quiet Orchard.

Best location if you’re with the kids

We highly recommend you head for the Sunken Garden where there’s plenty of room to run around or at the top of the driveway near the entrance you will find a nice expanse of lawn under the trees on either side of the driveway.  

You’ll be close to the toilets and baby changing facilities in the courtyard and not far to return your picnic to the car after lunch. Please bring along a rug or small fold up chair for you and your family group to use.

Takeaway from the Pavilion Café
