A British picnic often involves nervously commenting on dark clouds, fending off passing hungry dogs and having to seriously improvise when needing the toilet. But it doesn’t mean the food has to be bad! Forget soggy sandwiches and lacklustre supermarket nibbles – treat yourself to a luxury picnic hamper instead. Here are some of our favourite ready-made picnic hampers to try.
