If you’re making a beeline for the nearest park or picnic bench this summer, why not consider grabbing one of these delicious ready-made hampers and platters along the way?

Corrigan’s Gourmet Picnic Hamper

When it comes to seafood in the city, it really doesn’t get much better than Corrigan’s and seeing as the restaurant is based in Mayfair (just a short stroll from Hyde Park), it’s hard to resist one of their delicious hampers. Each basket is prepared to order and can be tailored to your group size. Expect seasonal dishes from Corrigan’s Irish and British restaurant menus such as a Cornish crab salad and salmon with heritage beetroot. From £100, corrigansmayfair.co.uk

De Beauvoir Deli Co’s The Hyde Park

Hackney’s De Beauvoir Deli Co is a mecca for any foodie and now you can take a selection of their finest produce with you to the park. Ideal for a celebration or special occasion, the ‘Hyde Park’ contains champagne, Pinney’s smoked salmon pâté, a selection of fine cheeses and their famous Scotch egg. From £80, thedebeauvoirdeli.co.uk

Amélies Custom Made Picnics

Amélies in Porthleven, Cornwall, is a haven for seafood lovers and given its idyllic location in Porthleven’s harbour (with direct access to freshly caught lobster, crab and seafood), it’s no wonder. As well as being a fantastic cafe, Amélies also create impressive picnics for groups of four people and more. Look out for their tasty mini Cornish pasties and eco-friendly cutlery and crockery. ameliesporthleven.co.uk

The Little Picnic Company’s British Larder Picnic

If you’re heading to Wimbledon or Ascot this summer, consider ordering from The Little Picnic Company as they can hand-deliver a fantastic picnic filled with local and seasonal produce. We particularly love their British Larder picnic which features picnic frittata, salad, pies, a cheeseboard and wine. £72, littlepicniccompany.co.uk

Fortnum & Mason’s Ham Hock Hamperling

You’ll find a ham hock salad, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese, lemon posset and luxury chocolates, all housed in a delightful F&M bag. Just the thing for a sunny afternoon in the park! Click & collect, £16, fortnumandmason.com

M&S Signature Sushi Platter

Sushi can make for a fantastic picnic snack, particularly if your guests are gluten-free. Handily, M&S sells these delicious fish-packed platters, crammed with 52 pieces of sushi, for you to nibble on in the sunshine. The gradvalax Scottish Lochmuir salmon with edamame is our favourite. £30, marksandspencer.com

Don’t miss…

Looking for somewhere to store all of that picnic grub? We love this nifty backpack from Joules which also contains plates, cutlery, wine glasses, and even a cheeseboard! Joules Picnic Rucksack, £59.95, millbryhill.co.uk
