Castleton, Derbyshire

Under the Shivering Mountain, you’ll see the ruins of the Norman Peveril Castle and the old lead mines. Castleton is a hidden gem in the Peak District where the semi-precious Blue John stone is found. Enjoy your hampers, UK; under the rolling hills or as a reward after a walk up to Cave Dale. And there are plenty of places to stay nearby if you want to take your time and really explore the many nearby Summer Bank Holiday 2023 picnic spots.

Norwich, Norfolk

It’s not just beaches and fun regional accents in Norfolk. The cobbled streets and narrow lanes make for amazing shopping. When you’re tired of browsing, pop down a picnic basket in the nearby Broads National Park or in the ever-present shadow of the Norwich Cathedral. Or drive a bit further out and sit beachside with your Picnic Feast for Two. It’s one of our most popular picnic hampers, UK!

Aira Force, Lake District

Who wouldn’t want to see 70ft of majestic waterfall in the heart of the Lake District in Cumbria? Owned by the National Trust, their own website states, “There are some fantastic picnic spots at Aira Force. Roll out the rug by the lake, on the Glade or find a spot at one of our picnic benches.” So, pack your hampers, UK! It’s hours of woodland exploring or lazy walks in tiny towns when you visit this area of natural beauty. Why not try to get there by boat for an even more unique visit?
