Picnic hamper delivery: The best picnic baskets and food hampers to order online or collect

There are few traditions we love more than a proper picnic with all the trimmings. Along with afternoon tea and Sunday roasts, a relaxing picnic in the park on a warm summer’s day is one of the best pastimes us Brits have adopted as our own. What's better than shovelling sandwiches and quaffing glasses of fizz in the great outdoors? It doesn’t matter if you’re at the seaside, a park or your best friend's garden - few things compare, we think you’ll agree.

Picnics are typically enjoyed outdoors in the afternoon and have rightfully become a staple of our spring and summer seasons, although there isn’t necessarily a correct way to ‘do’ a picnic. Some are content with grabbing as many items as they can from the ready-to-eat aisle of their local supermarket. Jobs a good ’un. But there’s also something terrifically special about pulling out a picnic basket packed with a range of carefully-selected goodies. Better yet, why not let someone else do the hard work for you and order one of these ready-made feasts from shops and restaurants across London and the UK?  

To help you make your posh picnic dreams a reality, we have rounded up the very best picnic food hampers and picnic baskets that the UK has to offer, ranging from delicious feasts that can be collected on your way to the park to picnic hampers delivered straight to your doorstep. So, whether you are in the mood for a traditional offering of sarnies, fizz, Scotch eggs and sweet treats, or you fancy something a little different, our pick of the best picnic food hampers for delivery should have something to tantalise your taste buds. 

Check out our selection of picnic hampers below and arrange a date with friends or family in your nearest park - don’t forget the sun cream!
