It’s National Picnic Week from the 15th-24th of June, which aims to promote areas of natural beauty to get the UK into the great outdoors this summer, enjoying some great food and great company.
National Picnic Week chose these two locations due to their scenic beauty, Colbly Woodland Garden was chosen for its beautiful woodland scenery. Penrhyn Castle was chosen for its amazing views and dog trail.
Adam Cox, founder of National Picnic Week said:
“We’ve had the hottest May on record so there’s already been more picnics so far this year than we normally have. With a hot summer predicted we’re expecting more picnics in 2018 than ever before. To make the most of your picnic this we’re encouraging the nation to have spontaneous picnics. It’s so quick to grab a blanket and a selection of foods and just enjoy eating outdoors. It doesn’t have to be a well-planned activity, you can even have a quick picnic in your lunchbreak”.
“I’d like to congratulate the winners and runners up and all the nominees that made it on to the shortlist. The UK has some fantastic picnic spots and a picnic can turn a day out into memories that last forever.”
There are stunning places to picnic all across the UK, and it’s one of National Picnic Week’s aims to promote these areas, and get people out enjoying the summer with friends and family. And now you can nominate your favourite picnic spots for consideration in next year’s competition. For more information, visit www.nationalpicnicweek.co.uk
