Could there be a better day out to enjoy the British summer than strawberry picking? Our regrettably short strawberry season is in full swing this month, along with Wimbledon, so find a local pick your own farm and experience a traditional British summer day out – just remember you’re supposed to put more strawberries in your punnets than in your mouth! You should always contact a farm before turning up to check what’s available.
