The three hampers have been designed to fit the style, shade, and colouring of the UK’s favourite Instagram filters and include some locally sourced ingredients from selected Mercure Hotels.

They include an Aberdeen Ardoe House Hotel and Spa hamper, with tea pastel sandwiches, shortbread and scones, a Box Hill Burford Bridge hamper with blue cheese and apple and cider chutney and a St Paul's Hotel and Spa hamper, with clotted cream and jam scones and Melton Mowbray pork pie. 

The hampers will be revealed at the Mercure Hotels Picnic Event, taking place at Somerset House, London, this Friday, 17 June, which will offer visitors a chance to relax in the sunshine, enjoy an alfresco meal or take part in a range of activities from wine tasting with Masters of Wine, Susie Barrie and Peter Richards.
