Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and you’re probably wondering what to do. Well, why not take your mum for a magical trip to swinging London Town?
A city filled with so many things to do, this is ideal place for a day or weekend trip to show your mum you care. Why not book yourself some advanced tickets, which will often make them cheaper, meaning you’ll have more to spend when you’re there. Below, we’ve highlighted some fun things to do.
Out for Food
It may sound obvious, but taking your mum out for a fabulous dinner is a classic thing to do for a reason. Plus, if you’re heading to London for a fabulous day or weekend trip, you’ll need to treat her to something wonderfully delicious. Try finding somewhere for a wondrous afternoon tea, such as the Devonshire Club, which is also offering a special feast that’s all about mothers. Meanwhile, if afternoon tea or brunch isn’t your mother’s thing, there’s a load of places offering proper Sunday lunch, with Craft London being a favourite thanks to its 360-degree view of Canary Wharf, the Thames and Greenwich.
Catch a Show
London is world renowned for its West End shows. With a power that’s pulled theatre legends out of retirement, Patti Lupone recently starred in the updated version of Company, it’s the ideal way to treat your mum. It doesn’t matter whether she’s into plays or musicals, as there’s something for everyone. However, sometimes tickets sell out fast, with shows like Hamilton being very difficult to get into. However, for this particular musical, you can sometimes get on the day tickets.
Now, London is known for its wonderful greenspaces, but you often overlook this when visiting for more extravagant things like the London Eye. However, why not take your mum to explore and wander around the beauty of London. Try Kew Gardens, or stroll Hyde Park, you could even take a walk by the river or visit the Japanese Garden at Holland Park. There’s so much beauty to see, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
This is a good one to help you and your mum fully immerse yourselves in a stunning part of London. Filled with history, beauty and fun, it would be a crime to overlook wonderful Greenwich. Take the time to check out the Royal Observatory, which has the UK’s largest refracting telescope, or take a look at the Cutty Sark for a taste of some true British history. You’ll also find the National Maritime Museum and the Queen’s House, which boasts more than 400 years of stunning art. For a bit more beauty, take a walk around Greenwich Park, London’s oldest Royal Park, and end with a trip to Greenwich Market, a hidden gem open seven days a week, selling a whole host of fabulous wonders.
