As the weather warms up we’re looking at ways to spend as much time outdoors as possible. And what would a family day out be without a picnic?  As Brits, we’ve loved picnics since the beginning of the middle ages when huntsmen on horseback took their lunches with them for the day.  Picnics were regarded as something for the wealthy to indulge in until the early 19th century. 

However, flash forward to now and a picnic is a way to enjoy eating outdoors with family and friends and regardless of budget. A picnic isn’t just enjoyable it’s far cheaper than having to pay for expensive seaside restaurants or attraction cafes.
