We all love to treat our mums to thank them for their hard work over the course of our lives, and a day out in London is the perfect way to show them how much you appreciate them. You’ll find plenty of fantastic Mother’s Day offersin the city, but there are also lots of other ways to show how much you care throughout the year.
Read on for some great ideas on how to share a fun day out with your mother.
Treat her to afternoon tea
Afternoon tea in London is always a pretty memorable experience – after all, no one can turn down a delectable day filled with delicious baked treats, tempting sandwiches, and lashings of freshly brewed tea, all served on the most charming china.
London has lots of great destinations to enjoy a stylish afternoon tea, from the traditional to the whimsical, but if you’re staying in the Park Grand Lancaster Gate, head towards Kensington Gardens for an afternoon tea experience with a regal flourish. The Kensington Palace Pavilion is a sumptuously stylish tea pavilion, overlooking the Palace, and surrounded by beautiful gardens.
Enjoy a delicious tea together, before taking a walk around the palace gardens. For bonus points, head inside for a tour of the palace, where you can admire the beautiful state rooms and take in the history of the space.
Take her on a cruise
After all her years of hard work, your mother deserves the chance to relax and admire the scenery, and one of the most memorable ways to do it is a stylish boat cruise down the River Thames. Take in the city’s most famous sights while enjoying a glass of champagne, or if you want to go all out, tuck into a delicious three course meal.
For something a little more casual but just as relaxing and scenic, try a canal cruise in the city instead. A more peaceful and tranquil experience, it’s an ideal way of enjoying some quality time together, while feeling like you’re a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Treat her to an indulgent pamper
Everyone deserves some extra TLC, and one of the loveliest ways to enjoy a relaxing day out is an extra-indulgent pamper session, in one the city’s best spas and salons.
You’ll find a great variety of spas, offering everything from soothing floatation tanks to space age skincare and body treatments. But for something fun and enjoyable, head to the renowned Cowshed Spa, with several locations across the city. Treat yourselves to restorative session for your whole body, with relaxing massages, calming facials, and hair and nail treatments to leave you looking as good as you feel.
Enjoy a delicious meal together
Finish off the perfect day out with a sumptuous dinner in London. Try out some of the fantastic Lancaster Gate restaurants, or head further afield for a variety of international cuisines on offer. Or for something exceptionally impressive, take her up for a special dinner in one of London’s top skyscraper restaurants, where you can enjoy a delectable dinner, alongside the sunset and some of the best views of the city.
