Wondering what to do for Mother's Day? Here's our round-up from across the UK.
Whether you go on the day or buy a voucher, treat Mum to some well-deserved ‘me-time’. What do we have in mind? If you’re close to London, check out the Aveda Lifestyle Salon & Spa. In the heart of Covent Garden, you can enjoy everything from blow dries and manicures to facials and massages – you’ll feel miles away from the city.
You can’t go wrong with this British tradition. For something that stands out from the crowd, Londoners can head to the Sanderson Hotel for the unique Mad Hatters afternoon tea, where everything is themed. If you’re close to Manchester and have a Mum with a really sweet tooth, at Cocoa Cabana in West Didsbury they serve their scones with a pot of salted caramel instead of jam! If you’re south, head to The Imperial in Torquay to enjoy your tea and cakes with a side of sea views.
What’s better than breakfast? All your favourite breakfast foods but at a reasonable hour! If Mum loves a mimosa or two, search for a bottomless brunch to keep the bubbles flowing. Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings (Clerkenwell, London), Indigo Yard (Edinburgh), Shears Yard (Leeds), Grey (Hilton Cardiff), Harvey Nichols (Birmingham), William & Florence (Norwich) are just some of our picks.
AT ONE WITH NATURE
Now the weather is on the up (we hope), why not head outside and enjoy a bit of the great outdoors. To get you started, the National Trust has the perfect event tracker to find something near to you.
MAKE IT ARTY
There are arts and crafts events across the country to get involved in. For example, Anthropologie (Richmond, London) are throwing a plant pot painting party; while at Liberté Concept (Bethnal Green, London) you can do a painting workshop with homemade cake.
If Mum loves music, keep it classy with a jazz event. At Scoff & Banter (Kensington, London) you can enjoy a live jazz lunch; while at The Fitzgerald (Manchester) they’re hosting a day of jazz and afternoon tea.
