What To Do In London On Mother’s Day
It’s not long to go until Mother’s Day (March 26th, if you want to put it in your diary) so now’s the time to book luxury coach hire to London so you can really spoil your mum like she deserves to be spoiled. But what could you possibly get up to in the capital together? Here are just a couple of our top picks to help you plan a great weekend away.
What better way to see London than by boat? It’s always fun to try and gain a new perspective so even if you already live in London, this might be a fun way to spend a few hours with your mum. There are different options you can choose from, whether you’d prefer a lunchtime cruise with a four piece jazz band, an afternoon tea cruise or a Thames dinner cruise that comes complete with delicious food, a live singer and some incredible views of the city.
Head off to Little Portland Street and you’ll find the Cookery School, the only one in the capital with three stars from the Sustainable Restaurant Association. Cooking together is a really fun way of cementing a relationship and doing something a little different that you perhaps wouldn’t do otherwise – and you can then have all the fun of recreating the magic once you get home, making a special meal that means something to you and your mum and no one else. With this course, you can learn how to make your own afternoon tea – a perfect way to spend time with your mother.
If the weather is good, try and spend as much time as you can outside. There are so many to choose from so pick wisely (and perhaps put others on your list for later on in the year), although the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew is always a good shout. There are 300 acres to choose from and over 30,000 different types of plant so if your mother is really into her gardening, this would be a lovely place to take her.
If you want to do something extra special, why not consider a helicopter tour over London? There’s no better way to see the city than from a bird’s eye perspective and it’s sure to change how you think of London. Prices start from #150 per person so factor this in when planning your holiday – but can you put a price on seeing the likes of St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge from up in the air?
Who doesn’t love a bit of pampering every now and again? Really treat your mum this year by booking yourself a spa day at one of the many fine establishments to be found in the Big Smoke. The May Fair Spa Experience would be a good choice, with treatments including use of the aromatic steam room, relaxation room and sauna. Your mum will surely thank you if this is your gift to her this year!
