Need Ideas for Mother’s Day? Shout About London is Here to Help. by admin on March 27, 2019

Too busy exploring this great city of ours to remember Mother’s Day is this Sunday? Don’t worry, Shout About London has the best places to take the irreplaceable woman you call mum.

The Capital has some of the most beautiful sights in the world, but for your mother’s special day she really deserves an experience! As London specialists, we have found 5 in London, and 5-day trips from London that will surely make you the favorite child:

Top 5 Mother’s Day experiences in London

1The Covent Garden Academy of Flowers

Ah, the refreshing beauty of Covent Garden. Pop down to the mother-daughter owned Academy of Flowers and enjoy a unique experience creating floral arrangements that may even rival your mum’s beauty. Afterwards, you can enjoy a lovely evening taking in the beauty of Covent Garden and pop into one of the many restaurants and bars in the area. Find more info here.

2- Afternoon Tea at the Kensington Palace Pavilion

For those with mothers with… royal tastes. Afternoon tea is as British as fish and chips, and what can honour a British mum quite like afternoon tea on the Royal grounds in the heart of Kensington. After tea take a breathtaking walk through Hyde Park and enjoy some quality time with mum. Skip the queue and make a reservation here.

3- Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew

For a more one on one or family experience with mum, Kew Gardens is an absolutely beautiful place to explore. With rules against sports and activities that may hurt the gardens, it is a quiet and peaceful place to have a picnic and enjoy time with mum. Find everything the Gardens have to offer here.

4- Pamper Day for Two with Virgin Active Health Club

Mums work harder than most of us, so why not treat both of you to a day to take away from all that stress (You’ve earned it!). A nice spa day, a nice dinner, and a few drinks at Janet’s bar for the mum that that deserves nothing but the best. More information and pricing on their website.

5- Janet’s Bar

Another mother-daughter owned establishment to support on Mother’s Day! This quirky bar in South Kensington is for mum’s that love to have a great time, with great people, with great cocktails! Janet’s a true one of a kind experience. The atmosphere, menu, and even the logo shows this bar is a unique experience. Come in before 10 to meet Hugo or Leandrew, masters of their craft. Come in after 10 to meet at least one of the Mother-Daughter duo of Cordelia and Janet. Tell them Shout About London sent you!

5 Day Trip Experiences for Mum

1-Victor’s -Oxford

This beautiful bar and restaurant is on a rooftop terrace in the heart of Oxford. It’s brunch, cocktails, and view are second to none. Less than a two hour train ride from central London, Victor’s is a relatively inexpensive way to treat your mum to an adventure she’ll always cherish. Once you’re done with the best brunch you’ve ever had, explore the beauty of this ancient town. Their menu, hours, and more can be found on their website.

2- Brown’s -Cambridge

Few things match the experience of dining at Brown’s, and even fewer come close to the Brown’s in Cambridge. An experience like this is something that will make mum feel like you really put time and consideration into researching where to take her. Don’t worry, we did all the research for you and that will stay between us. See more here.

3- French Brothers Runnymede Boathouse Cruise- Windsor

Just a short train ride away is the breathtaking city of Windsor, home of Windsor Castle and one of the most incredible experiences you could possibly give your mum. A three hour cruise along the river with delicious lunch served. This one of a kind experience can be found here.

4- The Old Gate Inn- Canterbury

Canterbury is a lovely and quiet town, perfect for a mum who needs to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the Capital. The Old Gate Inn’s Mother’s day special includes a delicious three course meal in a cozy tavern in the center of this beautiful and quaint town. Busy mum’s would love a change of pace this Mother’s Day. More information here.

5- Stratford Garden Centre- Stratford

We close out our list with the most flexible of the options. A short trip to Stratford will land you in this beautiful city with mum. Once there you can explore at your own pace as you make your way to the Stratford Garden Centre.
