The staff at some of the finest family accommodation in London know how to treat the ones they love.
This springtime, they bring you a list of their favourite weird and wonderful ways to celebrate Mother’s Day in London.
It might seem strange to start off with afternoon tea when talking about unusual Mother’s Day ideas, but London is fit to burst with fantastic, alternative afternoon tea options for mums who require a little more than clotted cream on a freshly baked scone. Scoff and Banter tea rooms promise little surprises between courses and the British Museum provides an interesting setting in which to enjoy your sweet treats. Of course, there is always Sketch, which is right on our doorstep in Mayfair, where an afternoon tea in the gallery will be sure to impress even the pickiest of parents.
Something to Get the Heart Racing
Up at the o2 is not for the feint-hearted and is certainly to be avoided with those who hate heights. Scale the side of one of London’s most-loved landmarks in Greenwich and enjoy views for 15 miles across the capital. The perfect surprise for thrill-seeking ladies.
Something Extra Special
Nothing says, ‘I love you’, quite like spending some quality time together – especially when the setting is so beautiful, so why not treat mum to an indulgent hamper package stay at our luxury holiday apartments in London this Mothering Sunday? Spend the weekend together living in luxury and making the most of our exclusive neighbourhood during your stay for a celebration to remember.
If your mum considers herself to be quite the movie buff, then a trip to the cinema could be the perfect choice for her. Cosy up with a box of popcorn and your film of choice for a movie night with a difference. Make it extra special and treat mum to table service and a film at one of the Everyman Cinemas dotted around various locations across London.
Something Hands On
Mums are busy creatures and often find it difficult to sit down and relax. If the most important woman in your life likes to keep busy then perhaps an afternoon spent indulging in the sweet stuff at a Chocolate Workshop might do the trick? Or for those green fingered females, what about a Floristry Workshop? It’s nice to come away with a little something you’ve made together as something to treasure for a long time to come.
Make sure you thank mum on March 26th for all her hard work and be sure to treat her in the best way possible.
We’d suggest a stay at our Mayfair luxury apartments, but that’s just us. We’ll leave the decision up to you.
