Take advantage of London’s tranquil greenery this summer with some alfresco feasting. Rather than slaving away at home in the kitchen, relish the city’s rare sunny spells with a quick pick of a luxury hamper. Quintessentially Insider presents a few of our top picnic experiences…

The Bulgari Basket

The Bulgari Hotel is re-launching its summer bicycle programme - a unique epicurean experience created for lovers of good food and a splash of adventure. Complementing the hotel’s exclusive range of well-being comforts, Milan-based Momo Design has created customised Bulgari bicycles for guests to explore Hyde Park or navigate the trendy streets of Knightsbridge. Alain Ducasse’s brilliant culinary team at the hotel have prepared a delicious ‘lunch-to-go’ bundled within a luxurious Bulgari hamper, allowing guests to indulge in the ultimate luxury picnic.
