Make this Mother’s Day unforgettable! With an array of treats and days out to choose from London, you can be sure that your mum will enjoy her day – and of course Addison Lee can get her from A to B on time and in comfort.
Here are ten timeless treats for your mum!
Classic Afternoon Tea
Afternoon tea is the epitome of timeless treats, and what better reason to indulge your mum than on Mother’s Day? This classic experience involves dainty sandwiches, scones laden with clotted cream and fruit jam, and a vast array of cakes and pastries. To make the afternoon tea extra special, you can heighten the experience with a glass of bubbly! Here are two of our favourites:
Traditional afternoon tea at English Tea Room At Brown’s Hotel. There’s nothing classier than afternoon tea at Brown’s Hotel. The Tea Room is wood-panelled, and the staff can talk you through their vast selection of teas, recommending a flavour based on your palate!
Traditional afternoon tea at Thames Foyer at The Savoy. The superb, traditional Thames Foyer, is a wonderful experience set against a backdrop of piano music. You and your mum can enjoy an unlimited selection of sandwiches followed by scones with homemade lemon curd, jam, and clotted cream.
Whether it’s a revitalising morning, an afternoon indulgence, or evening luxury, treating your mum to a Spa experience is a wonderful way to celebrate Mother’s Day! London has countless options depending on your tastes and budget – and your mums! – so we’ve put together two of our favourite options for you to consider:
Spa London – Bethnal Green. With steam rooms, Turkish hamam and plunge pools, and a range of treatments including scrubs and aromatherapy, this is a luxury treat at a pocket friendly price!
K West Hotel & Spa – Mayfair. This superb spa lets you de-stress with a Scandinavian sauna and steam room, then you can cool off in London’s first snow room!
Wine and Dine
Mothering Sunday can also mean great roast dinners, and there are some amazing places to enjoy a Sunday lunch in London! Old Red Cow near Smithfield meat market delivers on all fronts. As it’s in such close proximity to incredible meat, the roast is to die for. The pub is traditional, but modernised for London – the best of both!
If you’d rather have something a bit more special than a Sunday roast, treat your mum to one of the best cocktail bars in London: Bar Termini. In Soho, it’s ideally located if you want a couple of drinks before enjoying the evening, and it’s not huge so you’ll never feel crowded.
Sometimes it’s nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and enjoying the outside is a lovely way to spend a sunny afternoon with your mum! London has plenty of leafy greens and outdoor spaces to enjoy – here are a couple of our favourites:
Richmond Park is popular with tourists and locals, but you can avoid the crowds by taking a stroll in the Isabella Plantation. It’s a 40 acre woodland within Richmond Park, known for its stunning – and evergreen – azaleas. A wonderful picnic and photo spot!
National Trust’s Morden Hall Park is the perfect treat for mum if she enjoys the outdoors! There are plenty of winter walks here, plus a café to warm up if the spring afternoon is a bit chilly! Pick up natural materials from the trail and then make something with mum at the garden centre to really make it a day to remember!
London is home to some of the world’s greatest exhibits – some available year round, others only for a limited time. For something cultured and classic this Mother’s Day, why not treat her to some of the best museums what London has to offer? Here are two of our favourites:
The V&A is a stunning building, and rightly so is one of the most magnificent museums in the world. There are over 150 galleries over seven floors to be enjoyed, containing everything from paintings and posters to glass, sculpture, and textiles. An unforgettable treat.
For fun, quirky, and nostalgic, London Transport Museum delivers on all fronts. From horse drawn carriages from 1805 to railway coaches of the 1900s, this interactive museum is simply spectacular. There’s a family play zone for very young children, too, so bring the whole family out and enjoy this Mother’s Day!
