In case you hadn’t realised, it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday (26 March). That means if you haven’t already made plans to do something special for your mum, now is a good time to get started.
If you’ve got siblings it can be great to organise a family day out and where better to go than the UK’s capital?
You can book cheap minibus hire in London to make sure everyone gets from A to B safely, and that means if part of your day involves a drink to two no one has to worry about driving.
Think about what your mum enjoys. Would she love to spend the morning exploring the V&A Museum followed by afternoon tea at one of London’s many high-end hotels. Or would she prefer to stroll through the beautiful Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew and enjoy a meal at a Michelin-starred restaurant?
You may also want to look at booking tickets for one of the capital’s famous stage shows. There’s everything from Mamma Mia! to Les Miserables on the stages of the West End, and plenty else besides.
VisitLondon also suggests heading to the Museum of Brands to see an exhibition on how mothers have been portrayed throughout time, or taking any thrill-seeking mums on a speedboat ride down the River Thames.
For a truly indulgent afternoon tea experience, the website highlights the Chocolate Dreams afternoon tea available at St Martins Lane. This particular menu has been created in collaboration with Hotel Chocolat, so you can expect indulgent treats and will swap the traditional cup of tea for a mug of hot chocolate.
