Here's how to have a picnic and leave the worry about cleaning up to someone else, in this case, Bloomsbury bake shop owner, Bea Vo. For £9/picnicker, Bea supplies an easy to tote basketful of picnic essentials including a blankie, utensils and plates, tea of your choice along with a thermos of hot water, and of course scones, clotted cream, jam and assorted treats as well as a handy dandy map of nearby parks and outdoor spots where you can enjoy your basket o' yum. Simply leave a credit card or ID at her shop (to be given back when you return with the basket) and pray for sunshine.
Bea's of Bloomsbury is located at 44 Theobald's Rd (WC1X 8NW). Visit her shop online at www.beasofbloomsbury.com.
