Your picnic venue is just as important as the food, don't you think? The location you choose can turn even a mundane meal into an amazing alfresco event!
Are you going to choose a woodland setting, a beach, a park or perhaps a river bank?
What do you want to be gazing at while you lie back and digest your meal? What environment do you require for the activities you will take part in, or the picnic games you will play?
Have you found the very best spot already?
Please tell us by using the form below.
If you're having an outdoor meal en route from home to somewhere else, it only takes a few extra minutes to turn off the main road and find a pretty lane, a wood, field, or a town’s park with an area to eat in.
Finding a pretty spot, a few minutes off the road or highway, can turn a simple sandwich and a drink into something much more memorable.
If you are not eating en route to somewhere else, but the outdoor meal is the planned event, then the location becomes even more important - and therefore should be quite carefully planned.
Nature adds so much to the joy of alfresco dining. The food's flavours mix with the scents, colours and sounds of the outdoors, so that you can create your own little piece of paradise - or not! Spend a little time finding the right place to "eat out" and avoid disaster.
I'd love this site to become a resource for picnic places all over the world (big ambition I know!) and it would be brilliant if you could help.
Please suggest somewhere to picnic in your country (or somewhere you've visited) by submitting an idea in the form below, so that we can continue to build lists for other picnickers.
