Mercure Hotels is inviting food lovers of all ages to join them to celebrate the great British tradition of the summer picnic, with a free event at London’s beautiful Somerset House.

As a sponsor of Picnic Week, Mercure Hotels will offer a fun-filled day out for families and friends of all ages – offering visitors a chance to relax in the sunshine, enjoy an alfresco bite to eat or take part in a range of activities perfect from wine tasting to playing some giant sized board game classics. Whether you’re looking for an après work sun-downer with friends, or a family day out with the little ones – there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Guests are welcome to take their own picnics along with them to enjoy in the beautiful surroundings of the Edmond J. Safra Fountain Court at Somerset House.

There will be a fantastic range of Tom’s Kitchen picnic goodies for you to purchase on the day, as well as delicious Mercure Picnic Hampers by Tom’s Kitchen. Picnic hampers feature homemade baguettes, great classics like scotch eggs and delicious desserts. A deliciously refreshing bottle of Mercure ‘Picnic Perfect’ Prosecco is also available within some hampers and to purchase on the day, which has been exclusively selected by wine experts Susie Barrie and Peter Richards, from BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen.

Fun-filled activities and entertainment will be provided all day – including live music from acapella group, AfterParty live and interactive wine tasting with Susie and Peter, and plenty of fun and games for the little ones.
