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 orchard.

Best location if you’re with the kids

We highly recommend you head for the top of the driveway. Turn left at the end of the path from visitor reception and you will find a nice expanse of lawn under the trees on the other side of the driveway.  You’ll be right next to the woodland adventure trail and not far to return your picnic to the car after lunch.

Takeaway from the tea window

Hot drinks, snacks and ice creams are on sale from the tea window in the courtyard most weekends, weather permitting.

The restaurant has kid’s lunch boxes, sandwiches, crisps and drinks on sale from 11am.
