How to Celebrate National Picnic Week
Who loves a picnic? Well, if like us you're shouting "hell yeah", then this is the week for you. Last year we celebrated National Picnic Week with some of our Four Legged Foodie friends in Hyde Park but this year it will be a smaller affair with just family.
If you are thinking of heading to one of London's fabulous parks this weekend, here are 7 places where you can get ready made boxes full of delicious picnic goodies.
Why not save yourself hours in the kitchen buttering bread and support these great dog friendly establishments at the same time.
Megan's, various locations
We had to start with one of our absolute favourites!
You can pick up your boxes from any of their 8 locations and you can get them with Prosecco, champagne or lemonade.
There is a good selection of veggie and vegan dishes too.
Order your boxes here...

If you love Spanish tapas then you will be pleased to know you can get a great selection from Pizarro and they will even deliver it in a lovely wicker picnic basket.
Order yours here...

Pick up a meat, veggie or vegan box at the original Nurseries in Petersham and enjoy on the lovely Richmond riverside.

Wild By Tart, Belgravia
Housed in the amazing Eccleston Yard, this beautiful restaurant is from the team behind Tart London.
