2. Alexandra Park, Bath
This lovely park offers something for everyone and is the perfect spot for a picnic. A wonderful, tranquil green space with mature trees; this 11-acre park provides magnificent panoramic views of the city and the surrounding wooded vales and hills.

3. Kimberley Park, Falmouth
This seven-acre park is stunning in the summer thanks to its variety of trees and flowers making it a beautiful setting for a picnic. What’s more, Kimberley Park is only a 15-20 minute walk from the seafront and 5-10 mins from the town centre, so that you can continue spending your day enjoying just some of the things that Falmouth has to offer.
