If an invite to one of the Queen’s famous garden parties is still eluding you, the good news is you can now bring your own picnic to Buckingham Palace.
This year, the Queen is allowing unique access to her private gardens, where guests will be free to stroll around her manicured grounds. All that exploring is bound to work up an appetite, and with your entrance ticket you’ll also be allowed to picnic on one of the many sweeping lawns, which look onto the back of the palace – a view very few of us are ever privy to.
There are a few options when it comes to lunchtime on the lawn. There are going to be various food stalls dotted around for you to buy food and drinks from, while guests are also invited to bring their own picnic if they prefer.
For those looking to really get the royal treatment though, there is a third option nearby which will really help to elevate elevenses. Delivery platform SUPPER has just announced that it will be offering app users handy pickup spots close to the palace gardens for its high-end menu. The main pickup point is three minutes from the gardens’ entrance and here you’ll be able to collect refined picnic options, like a hamper from Fortnum & Mason (a Royal Warrant Holder, no less). Options include a full spread packed with treats like cauliflower tacos, a selection of crudités, cheese platters, fresh salads, falafels, and Scotch eggs.
SUPPER also delivers from some of London’s best restaurants. Big name brands like SushiSamba, Arros QD and Nobu are on the books, offering people a high-end dining experience in the Queen’s back garden. Other options include meals from Harrods and sweet treats from Ladurée.
