With British summertime now in full swing, many of us are eager to enjoy the warmer months by soaking up some sun at our favourite UK picnic spots. And what better way to make the most of the summer than gathering your friends and family, packing a blanket, and venturing out to your most-loved locations.
To give you a helping hand this month, we have put together a selection of destinations that are perfect for a classic British al-fresco lunch or a nice family walk through garden and woodland trails – plus, plenty of savoury snacks to tuck into along the way.
Hadrian’s Wall Path
This beautiful nature walk stretches from Wallsend on the East Coast of England to Bowness-on-Solway, on the West Coast, with stunning views and breath-taking scenery. This is perfect for brisk walkers but can also be cut short for those who want to enjoy a leisurely stroll. Fuel up for your trip by sharing one of our Snack Pork and Pickle Piesand add a slice of cheese for the perfect combo.
Arley Hall & Gardens, Cheshire
This picturesque garden trail is ideal for those wanting to take a break and relax. With plenty of outdoor green spaces, this picnic spot is a great place for making memories with loved ones. Why not top it off with one of our Original Large Pork Pies to complement your favourite sides and condiments.

Marsden Bay, South Tyneside
A British summer getaway is not complete without a beach, so why not visit this beautiful bay situated on the outskirts of South Shields, north-west of Lizard Point. An idyllic spot to snuggle up when the nights draw in and why not enjoy a late-night snack with our Mini Pork and Branston Topped Pies – a tasty treat to end a fun filled day.
Stourhead Garden, Wiltshire
Get to know some of Britain’s most beautiful gardens by visiting Stourhead Garden in Wiltshire. Spend your summer alongside the blooming roses or take a long tranquil walk through the woodlands. These gardens offer incredible outdoor lounging spaces to sit back and indulge in one of our Melton Mowbray Medium Pork Pies. Pair with a caramelised red onion chutney to create a delicious lunchtime snack.
