As lockdown restrictions slowly ease in Britain, we can’t wait to grab a blanket, a colourful parasol, pack a hamper with treats, and head out into the spring sunshine for a celebratory (and socially distanced, of course) picnic with our friends and family!
Whether you visit your local park, trek to a secluded spot or feast al fresco in the back garden, the perfect picnic takes some planning.
