Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you can’t pack an epic picnic for your days out. In fact, we’re firm believers that a warm lunch on a chilly day out will only make things better – and it’ll bring the fam together too.
Heading out into the great outdoors? These ideas will keep you stocked with energy. And if you’re heading out to a tourist attraction, our lunches will stop the kids wining about how ‘hungrrryyyyy’ they are. Promise.
Not only can picnics be outright delicious, they're also excellent money savers. Most tourist attractions serve food, but prices are soaring and taste can be lacking... So, why not grab a thermos and get to cooking?
We're all about money saving at Days Out - why not check out our money saving hacks for days out? They'll save you some real cash.
Okay, before we get started, insulated food and drink containers are gonna be your best friend during winter months. There’s nothing more disappointing than lukewarm soup and cold stew, right?
It’s best to be prepared, especially in winter, so make your meals a day ahead – just heat them up before you leave and chuck them in your handy-dandy food containers.
Don’t forget about drink options too – Thermos cups will keep your hot chocolate, tea, coffee (or even mulled wine) warm for hours.
Making a big pot of stew, soup or curry is a winter essential, so why not bring it on a day out with you too? P.s this is also a great way to use up leftovers – we’re looking at you, stew.
Who said that cold food wasn’t allowed either? Sometimes all you need is a sandwich to get you through the day. You can mix and match too – soup and a sandwich is, like, the OG lunch choice.
At Days Out, you can book the UK’s best attractions (y’know the proper FOMO inducing ones?) -- we know where’s perfect for you. Find your next adventure.
