Summer is finally here! The sun is shining, the sky is blue so pack a picnic and head to one of our perfect spots across Northamptonshire.

We have handpicked our ten favourites spots in our beautiful county to tuck into a picnic with family, friends or a loved one.

The idea of a picnic - to be enjoyed outdoors and was jointly contributed - began from the early 19th century.

Our favourite picnic food classics include traditional sandwiches, scotch eggs, pasta salad, sausage rolls, crisps and dips, crudities, chicken drumsticks and quiche.

For a sweet treat take little cakes, strawberries or Eton Mess all washed down with ice cold soft drinks, chilled fizz or an elderflower and cucumber gin and tonic.

Don’t forget a rug, bottle opener, wine cooler and keep your fingers crossed this beautiful is here to stay.
