Mercure Hotels celebrates National Picnic Day 

Mercure Hotels is holding a free picnic event at Somerset House, in line with the hotel brand's partnership with National Picnic Week. The event will feature bespoke picnic hampers created by Tom’s Kitchen, featuring homemade baguettes, classics like scotch eggs and desserts.
