Mother’s Day may have originated from ancient Greeks dedicating the annual spring festival to maternal goddesses but the occasion is best celebrated in London! If you are in the buzzing city this spring, below are our suggestions on where to head out with mum on 26th March.
For some quality time together whilst gazing at London’s tourist attractions, visit the tranquil Kew Gardens or the iconic Kensington Palace Gardens. Wander around exotic flowers and wild meadows whilst mum plans her next garden makeover! The tropical, botanical gardens are surely worth a stroll this Spring. Another great place to indulge in long walks and deep conversations is the King’s playground, Kensington Gardens. Part of Hyde Park for over ten decades, the beautiful garden is secluded and scenic and is home to traditional flower displays in the spring and summer. At the palace, explore sumptuous set of rooms, paintings from 18th-century court and the King’s Gallery.
If mum is easily pleased with a little retail therapy, a visit to Harrods or Oxford Street would be any shopaholic’s delight. Bond over quality service and a global brand collection at Harrods as you bask in its 160 years of glory. A perfect place for hard to shop for mums! For a shop till you drop kind of experience, Oxford Street is the quintessential destination for flagship stores, vibrant crowd and quirky eateries.
Make it unique this Mother’s Day by sampling exotic chocolates with Mum at a Mother’s Day chocolate workshop. An ideal match for culinary enthusiasts, spend quality one-on-one time whilst polishing up your baking and decorating skills. If wooden garden furniture, lawn chairs and barbecues tickle your fancy, head over to the Farmer’s Market at Alexandra Palace to nibble on refreshments from around the globe and browse through organic offerings.
Is mum an Afternoon Tea connoisseur? Look no further. Featuring a dedicated Afternoon Tea menu for guests, you will be spoilt for choice with options available at The Rembrandt. Enjoy a refreshing Pimm’s Afternoon Tea or a traditional Cream Tea in our cosy 1606 Lounge Bar with comfy sofas and an opulent ambience.
