National Picnic Month

July is National Picnic Month and it got us thinking about all the great picnic spots we have in Lancaster. There’s no better way to enjoy the summer sun than sharing a delicious picnic with friends and family. Check out some of our top spots:

Bull Beck picnic site

Bull Beck picnic site is a free site, located east of Caton in the beautiful Lune Valley, offering some pleasant walks along the Lune Valley towards the lovely villages of Hornby and Gressingham or towards Lancaster. Why not take a picnic and enjoy the great outdoors with the family.

Williamson Park

Take a walk up to Williamson Park, home to the iconic Ashton Memorial and 54 acres of beautiful parkland with enchanting woodland walks and play areas. This is the perfect place to enjoy a picnic with stunning views across Morecambe Bay, Fylde Coast, Morecambe Bay and the Lake District fells and mountains.

Crook O Lune picnic site

A popular beauty spot settled on a horseshoe bend in the River Lune just north of Lancaster. With plenty of pleasant walks available alongside the riverbanks and through the surrounding countryside, the Crook O’Lune Picnic Site provides a great base to explore the area further.

Conder Green

Nestled on the coastal plain of lush green fields and framed by a beautiful backdrop of fells, Conder Green is a lovely place to lunch. After your picnic, treat yourself to a famous ice cream at Wallings.
