In celebration of London National Park City week and our beautiful green surroundings, this week we wanted to share our top picks for organising the perfect picnic for you to enjoy al fresco in one of our many wonderful city parks!

A Portuguese love Affair, situated right next to Haggerston Park, this beautiful deli is the perfect place to pull out all the stops on the perfect summer feast. Their weekend BBQ is like no other; expect seasonal variety and creative flair.

Lily Vanilli, situated just off Columbia Road, offers a weekly changing seasonal menu of cakes, pastries, soups, fresh juices alongside their famous sausage rolls and brownies. A trip here is sure to win you brownie points!

Grab your fish supper to go from Sutton & Sons and head to Stoke Newington Common or nearby Abney Park. They have a special take-away menu and even a vegan menu including vegan scampi, fishcakes, prawn cocktail and of course fish & chips!

If you’re chosen picnic spot allows alcohol consumption why now swing by Mother Kelly’s and grab some unusual beers (or ciders) to keep you nice and cool, you won’t regret it!
