From 16th to 25th June is National Picnic Week, a celebration of one of the UK’s most enjoyable summer traditions. We’ve selected our top spots for a proper picnic, near to our luxury accommodation in York.
Be delighted by Dean’s Park, minutes away from our hotel in York
Managed by the Dean and Chapter of York Minster, Dean’s Park is a short walk from our luxury boutique hotel in York and one of the city’s best-loved green spaces. Offering magnificent views of the iconic York Minster, there’s no better spot to lay down a blanket and unpack your picnic basket.
Relax by the River Ouse
There are plenty of idyllic grassy green areas along the River Ouse for you to set up your blanket and hamper. Watch the boats cruise on by as you sip on a glass of bubbly and soak up the summer sun.

At Homestead Park, you’ll find picturesque, well-maintained flower gardens, landscaped green areas, and an ornamental pond that will make the perfect backdrop for your picnic. There’s also a wildlife guide, tree trail and wildflower meadow for you to enjoy.
