Around Britain in a Hamper Van
We couldn't write about Britain's greatest picnic spots from behind a desk. So we rolled up our blankets and hit the road for three weeks. 1843 miles, four punctures, three breakdowns and countless sarnies later, we've got our favourite 30: the Country Life Gold Picnic Spots.
We're also sharing our pick of the 'nics from our own research and recommendations. Unlike our Country Life Gold Picnic Spots, we haven't quite managed to visit all these places yet. See, our feet hurt. But even then, we didn't stop there. We picked the well-travelled brains of the Guardian's travel writers to find their favourite picnic spots around the country.
All of these recommendations, along with your favourite spots, can be found by using the clever filter buttons below. Enjoy.
