10 best picnic blankets
As the sun comes out (hurrah) it’s time to wander down to the nearest park or beach, just make sure you’ve packed something to sit on
There’s nothing so British as a picnic, or as stubborn as the British weather. Although the sun may only be fleeting, and the temperature definitely not approach anything continentals might label hot, you can count on the masses to turn out to parks, fields and beaches across the country.
From the decadent tartan offering from Barbour to Wilko’s incredibly priced polkadot rug, there’s something for everyone.

We love Hen&Hammock’s British sourced, eco-friendly tartan picnic offering. The slightly unusual colours make for a great blanket - and are very reasonably priced. The rabbit picnic blanket from John Lewis makes for a great all-rounder - it’s kitsch design means adults can appreciate but it’s fun enough for a kids blanket too.
