This little-known Welsh beach has been described as the best-kept secret in Pembrokeshire, and has been ranked among the best beaches in the world.

It's the perfect picnic spot for all the family, and one that will have you returning again and again.

 

Somerset House

If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of London for a picnic with your family, Somerset House is the place to go. This 18th century Neoclassical palace has a huge courtyard where you can sit and relax, and there's plenty of space for children to run around - they'll love ducking in and out of the fountains. Once you've finished eating, take a look around the spectacular building and the exhibits and collections inside.

The Clywedog Valley & Trail is a 7-mile walking trail, dotted with picnic spots where you and your family can stop and relax. Stop at the Minera Lead Mines - a testimony to the area's industrial heritage with an engine house, surface workings and small museum. Along the trail you'll find a giant reconstruction of a mole tunnel, complete with worms, and a children's play area, so there's no danger of them getting bored.
