With miles of beautiful countryside to choose from around the UK, we have dwindled them down to the top 3 places to visit for your family picnic. For those whose picnic preparation isn’t quite up to scratch, there are also plenty of ways to make it extra-special with the delicious seasonal food on offer at the many cafés and shops which surrounds some of these beautiful areas.

Aberdulais Tin Works and Waterfall.

Set in a steep gorge, this place demonstrates the power of water and its impact on industry. Our film 'Reflections on Tin' traces its 400-year history, from 1584, including a visit by the famous artist JMW Turner. An early water-powered tin works was the last industry here. Today the waters of the River Dulais are used to make Aberdulais Falls self-sufficient in environmentally friendly energy. It has the largest electricity-generating waterwheel in Europe. Lifts enable you to access the cinema and the upper levels for excellent views of the falls.

High Force Waterfall.
