There are few places better to be than London when…
As Mother’s Day fast approaches, it’s time to start thinking of the best ways to treat the most special woman in your life. Celebrated on the 31st March, it is a day to give thanks to your Mum and we have just the experiences that are sure to put a smile on her face!
Afternoon Tea in London
This quintessential British tradition of afternoon tea is one that is extra indulgent (especially in one of London’s classic 5-star hotels!). So why not treat your Mum to a gorgeous selection of homemade pastries, clotted cream on warm scones, delicious sandwiches and a host of scrumptious teas.
Afternoon Tea at Grosvenor Hotel
For an alternative afternoon tea experience, we love the BB Bakery afternoon tea bus that takes a scenic route through the capital’s most iconic locations whilst serving an array of deliciousness! With views of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall as you settle down to homemade treats, this bus tour is the ultimate Mother’s Day experience!
Dining Experience on the River Thames
There’s no better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than we a gorgeous dinner and the Bateaux London dinner cruise doesn’t disappoint. Taking you on a cruise along the River Thames where you can soak in panoramic sights of the glittering city at night, you and your Mum will be treated to a five-course menu with live entertainment – not your average evening!
The View from the Shard
Arrange for you and your Mum to ascend 800 feet above the ground to see London from it’s most spectacular viewpoint – The Shard. If you haven’t had the chance to see the city from these great heights before, Mother’s Day is the perfect chance. With panoramic views of the capital showcasing the likes of St Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben, the London Eye and many more of the city’s most famous landmarks – it simply has to be ticked off the bucket list!
London Shows and Performances
If your Mum is a fan of live entertainment (and lets face it, who isn’t?) then London has plenty to offer. From the Southbank Centre‘s upcoming orchestral shows to the West End’s most famous theatre shows, you’ll be spoilt for choice on what to pick! With Wicked, Kinky Boots and Dream Girls all firm city favourites, you can’t go wrong. With the West End surrounded by many delicious restaurants that offer pre-theatre menus, you can treat your Mum to a bite to eat before getting your glad rags on for a trip to the theatre!
Visit London’s Famous Landmarks
As London goes royal-crazy with the recent news that Prince Harry and Megan Markle are set to marry, Mother’s Day could be the perfect opportunity to discover the city’s royal locations. With Westminster Abbey being the royal venue for Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding in 2011 and home to the Coronation Chair, there is much to discover at this treasured landmark. If you or your Mum have already shared a selfie or two at the Abbey, head over to St Paul’s Cathedral where Princess Diana and Prince Charles tied the knot and try out the famous Whispering Gallery!
