The Great Northumberland Picnic

Life is certainly a picnic in Northumberland. What better thing to do than to pack up a picnic, throw in some good company and head out to the best places to eat outdoors in Britain?

Here are the Great Northumberland picnics; each has a recipe for a home-made treat, suggestions for where to lay your picnic rug and ideas for your outdoor feast.

Bamburgh Castle was voted Britain’s best picnic spot by Warburtons Family Bakers. But there are many other outstanding places to partner an al fresco treat.

From a salad made with cheese produced by sheep and cattle reared on the very grasslands your picnic rug is laid out upon. Salmon sandwiches on beaches just a mile or so from the smokehouse where it was smoked, fresh crab harvested from the sea in front of you. Wherever you choose to picnic, make sure it packs a punch with local Northumberland produce.

Use our picnic suggestions below to find your perfect picnic spot. Eat the view too, with delicious picnic suggestions and recipes inspired by the surrounding coast and countryside.
