Perfect picnic Spots at Waddesdon

Family Picnic at Waddesdon

There's nothing like a picnic to enjoy the summer weather. With plenty of room in the grounds and many idyllic spots to enjoy an al fresco lunch, you'll be spoiled for choice for places to spread out a blanket or two.

Pick a quiet spot and bring your own food to enjoy as a picnic in the gardens and take in the sights and sounds of Waddesdon. Alternatively why not pick up something from one of our food to go outlets or the Treaterie and create your own picnic on the day?

With a tempting selection of cakes and bakes, sandwiches and drinks in environmentally friendly disposable cups, there is plenty on offer to enjoy with your friends and family.

Here are some of our top spots to relax with your tasty treats...
