Typical spring weather has arrived in London, which makes it difficult to predict. But there are still sunny days, and they should get more frequent.
When the sun is shining, there’s nothing like a day in the park. And it’s only made better by the addition of a picnic, especially when someone else makes it for you. If you want to make the most of spring and summer in London, these hotels offer excellent picnic experiences…
La Suite West
Some hotels offer you more service than others when it comes to picnic baskets. At La Suite West, it’s more of a DIY approach.
Check rates at La Suite West
Just pick up your basket with afternoon tea inside, including sandwiches, scones, and cakes, and take it where you like. When you’re done, return your basket to the restaurant by 10pm.
Charlotte Street Hotel
There’s a choice of hampers from Oscar at the Charlotte Street Hotel.
Charlotte Street Hotel
Choose the Breakfast Hamper, with croissants, muffins, sandwiches, and granola bars. Or, for lunch, try the Bloomsbury Hamper and enjoy sandwiches, salad, and a chocolate tiffin.
If you want a manly picnic, the Gentleman’s Hamper has a selection of masculine sandwiches (e.g. ploughman’s and BLT), scotch eggs, and rum baba. All hampers are for two and come with a choice of drinks.
Baglioni Hotel London
If the above options seem a little too ordinary, why not go all out at Baglioni Hotel London? The hotel’s Italian Picnic Experience package revolves your whole stay around an incredible picnic.
Guests get a picnic prepared by Executive Chef Alberto Rossetti who has a passion for food that is both healthy and tasty.

After May, the basket’s contents will change to a Parma ham flatbread, mozzarella and rocket or York and ricotta cheese salad; a seasonal fruit salad; and carrot cake.
