With summer just around the corner and the UK is more or less free of covid restrictions, it’s time to start thinking about outdoor activities to enjoy with your family and friends. One such traditional and always very popular, if the weather’s right is the good old-fashioned British picnic. Not only is it a few hours outside chilling and taking in the views but some amazing locations can offer a bit more fun and enjoyment too.
Best Price Car Sales has researched some great locations throughout the UK for you and your family to enjoy. Here are some of the top choices.
Surrounded by the most beautiful countryside and scenery, Corfe Castle is situated in the Purbeck Hills. Not only are you surrounded by history but a great scenic view of endless hills and miles of the stunning landscape.
There’s also the famous Model Village, along with the Animal Rescue Centre and a traditional steam train ride to experience, plus you have guided walks along the coastline.
The Tatton Park estate in Knutsford, Cheshire, offers visitors beautiful green scenic surroundings which host bustling wildlife, such as deer in the hundreds. The park also plays a role in being a great venue for headline concerts and events like fireworks. The grounds are picture-perfect for taking the whole family on a warm sunny day and just enjoying a great day out, with the promise that you might attract a curious mammal to come across and take a closer look. And after you have packed up, why not go into Knutsford town centre and visit its famous antique shops and some amazing tearooms.
Bowless Picnic Area
The stunning Bowlees Picnic Area in Durham is home to four spectacular waterfalls which is not to be missed. The very popular High Force waterfall is the largest one of the four and boasts also being the largest waterfall in England, with a height of twenty-one metres. This is a must-see visit for the whole family.
Once you have finished your picnic and packed up, you’ll be able to walk it off by strolling along the riverside footpath, in the direction of Gibson’s Cave, named after the outlaw who used the cave to avoid capture by the law.
Looking for breathtaking panoramic views and scenery? Look no further than Britain’s longest, deepest, and widest dry valley in the midst of bustling wildlife. The Devil’s Dyke in West Sussex is an amazing picnic spot to visit and it’s all free. One other experience you can have is taking along kites there because due to the natural environment, it creates perfect conditions for kite flying.
This place is a beautiful combined location, mixing both a trip to the beach, a sunny day’s picnic, and exploring the hidden caves beneath the limestone cliffs. The key benefit as to why this place is excellent for a fun day out is, that Marsden Bay acts as a great wind shelter and sun trap. Oh, and by the way, take your binoculars with you too if you are keen on bird watching, the cliffs are homes to a vast amount of seabird colonies.
The Lake District is home to many tranquil places for holidays and weekend breaks, it’s basically one of the many reasons that make Britain great. One such contributor has to be the central fells of the Lake District National Park which extends to Loughrigg Terrace and Grasmere to Dunmail Raise in Cumbria. Nothing better than settling down with your friends or family beside a beautiful still lake and just taking in the awe-inspiring view of the best of Mother Nature. You’d be hard-pressed to find another equivalent beauty spot in the UK like Elterwater.
Considered to be one of the best estates in the UK. The well-manicured slopes surrounding Chatsworth House in the Peak District is the essence of picturesque, which makes it the perfect place to have a tranquil picnic. On-site there’s a delightful farm shop with the finest selection of pies, cheese, fresh bread, and cooked meats. Actually, it’s not a bad idea to make the shop your first visit to stock up for your picnic.
