There are two ticketed observation areas for the Olympic road race this weekend: the start/finish point at The Mall in London and Box Hill in Surrey where all the action happens.
It’s easy to find food and drink spots in central London but what about out in the country?
You could of course pack a picnic hamper; the weather, for once, is looking promising. If you have far to travel though, that looks much less appealing.
Most of the roads in the area will be closed and there will be minimal parking. Lugging around a big hamper on a scorching summer’s day isn’t much fun and even worse, perhaps, is if it rains and things get muddy.
But you’re in luck.
