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. If you love the city of Bath just as much as we do, then why not check out our Hope House development, which is also situated in this beautiful city.
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.
4. Salisbury Cathedral Close, Salisbury
Picnic in Salisbury’s medieval Cathedral Close and take in the impressive Cathedral, historic houses and pretty little gardens belonging to the local residents. If you like the idea of taking in these views from your own home, then check out our development Chequers House, situated right in the heart of Salisbury.
4. Alexandra Palace Park, London
Located just out of the city is Alexandra Palace Park, known as the people’s park. This park has also been awarded a The Green Flag Award®, the scheme recognises and rewards well-managed parks and green spaces. Sit with your picnic and discover panoramic views across London.
