Mother’s day is fast approaching and it’s time to let your Mum know just how much you love her. Breakfast in bed always works a treat but if you want to plan something extra special, why not book a Travelodge weekend in London and enjoy one of these fantastic treats.
Why not treat your mum to a delicious afternoon tea in luxurious surroundings! Tea lovers will adore the afternoon tea at Le Chandelier, which offers a delicious range of 30 black loose teas and delectable cakes to tuck into. A Cream Tea costs just £6.75, whilst the Champagne Afternoon Tea costs a reasonable £24. Health conscious mums might enjoy the delicious afternoon tea at Bake-a-Boo which hosts a range of dairy, gluten and sugar free bakes. The princess pink cake parlour is excellent value and a girly masterpiece. For an Oriental treat try the afternoon tea at the Takara Sushi Bar, which comes with a deliciously selected Bento Box and green tea or sparkling wine.
Lavish your mum with a relaxing day at one of London’s top destinations. The Sanctuary Spa in Covent Garden is the perfect location for a glamorous day out. The website always has fresh new offers to leave you and your mum feeling relaxed. Alternatively, 58 South Molten Street is the perfect destination for any mum who loves anything related to well-being. As well as a range of beauty treatments, one of the on site osteopaths is a specialist in pre and post natal aches and pains – the perfect day out for any expectant mums. Spa Illuminata is another quirky spa specialising in magnificent massage. The décor might not be to everyone’s taste but the unusual treatments should have your mum hooked.
For an interesting day out with a twist treat your mum to a visit to The National Portrait Gallery, with tickets to Bailey’s Stardust. The fashionable exhibition covers all of our favourite style icon’s from the swinging 60s onward. If you feel like treating your mum to some theatre tickets, then book ahead for some West End magic. If you book far enough in advance you can find some great deals online.
If you would love a nature day, slightly away from the city, then take your Mum to Kew Gardens for a gorgeous day spent in the great outdoors. If the sun decides to shine then taking a Spring guided walk should top up everyone’s levels of Vitamin D. If the Great British drizzle rears its head then head to the gorgeous greenhouses. London is home to an abundance of other parks too, perfect for a Spring picnic or sitting amongst the Daffodils.
If you and your mum are true shopaholics then the Capital is definitely the best place to get your shopping fix. The Sunday market on Brick Lane is a fantastic place to pick up vintage and handmade specialities, whereas Oxford Street and Covent Garden are the shopping centres of London. For typically English treats head to Fortnum and Mason or splash out on designer goods at Selfridges. For a quieter shopping day, tootle around the charity shops in Hampstead or the antique shops in The Camden Passage.
