Picnic In The Park
Relax, eat, and unwind in nature
Take it easy for the day and make the most of the (hopefully) fine springtime weather with a picnic with your nearest and dearest.
Oxford University Parks
Lay out your picnic blanket in the Oxford University Parks, which are open to the public every day. The River Cherwell borders the northeast side of the park, so you can enjoy some alfresco food while watching the punting.
If you enjoy entertainment while you dine, you might also be able to catch a game of cricket, lacrosse, tennis, football, or rugby.

Visit Tatton Park, a 50-acre National Trust Garden which has been home to deer herds since 1290. Let the kids roam the open space and get lost in the maze and don’t forget to soak up the tranquility of the Japanese Gardens or stroll through the impressive orchards.

Want to see some rare breed cattle and sheep while eating your sandwiches? The Wimpole Estate is a beautiful outdoor space for people of all ages.
Claim your picnic spot anywhere on the 300-acre ancient parkland. After you’ve enjoyed your spread, there’s plenty of flora and fauna to discover plus a Gothic folly.
