Events & Activities Activities Great Places for Picnics We have some great places for a picnic. Wandlebury Country Park There are dozens of picnic benches in the beautiful meadows, or put out your picnic blanket. We even have a meadow called "Picnic Field". Soak up the scenery of woodlands, wild flowers and historic buildings while you enjoy your meal. A picnic in Games Field means your children can play games or have fun in the den building area. Personal BBQs are not permitted but you can hire one of our wonderful BBQ areas. Coton Countryside Reserve There is a picnic bench in the newly planted jubilee orchard (not far from the car park), or climb Red Meadow Hill to lay your picnic blanket with a panoramic view over Cambridge. BBQs are not permitted. Hinxton Watermill There are two picnic benches for you to admire the attractive 17th century mill next to the River Granta. BBQs are not permitted. At all of these places you can enjoy a walk to work up an appetite or burn off the calories. Please remember to take your litter home with you.
