EIGHT UNUSUAL THINGS TO DO ON MOTHER’S DAY, THAT YOUR MUM WILL LOVE
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, sons and daughters everywhere will be scrambling for ways to show their Mum some love. Luckily for them, Best Western Great Britain has compiled a list of things to do this March that will give mothers across the country the special day they deserve.
1. Thermae Bath Spa
The Romans were busy people, conquering the world and building roads, but they sure knew how to relax. Your mum will forget the stresses of everyday life as she soaks in Britain’s only naturally warm, mineral-rich waters, just as the Romans did millennia ago. The open-air rooftop pool is particularly spectacular, with bathers enjoying fantastic views over the historic city of Bath.
See beautiful Bath and all its glory from £71.10 for a double room*, staying at the Abbey Hotel, BW Signature Collection by Best Western.
2. Slingsby Gin Experiences, Spirit of Harrogate
Harrogate, North Yorkshire
The gin industry is booming, with the government making more money from spirits last year than beer! Head behind the scenes at the Spirit of Harrogate distillery, learning about the history of gin and receiving a special mixology lesson in the art of cocktail-making. Oh, and plenty of free samples.
See the hype of Harrogate from £67.50 for a double room with free breakfast**, staying at the Dower House Hotel & Spa, Sure Hotel Collection by Best Western.
3. Orchids Festival, Kew Gardens
An upgrade from the traditional supermarket flowers, treat your mum to a day at the Orchids Festival, in the internationally-famous Kew Gardens. Stroll through the tropical greenhouse surrounded by rainbows of colour, with highlights including Thai-inspired orchid bouquets and handcrafted floating umbrellas.
Visit the stunning Kew Gardens from £89.25 for a double bed, staying at the Seraphine Hammersmith Hotel, Sure Hotel Collection by Best Western.
4. Mother’s Day Bouquet Workshop and Fizz, Patron Bar à Vin
Kentish Town, London
Go above and beyond the usual Mother’s Day cliché and create your own bouquet of flowers! For two fun-filled hours, you and your mum will create a beautiful floral composition, under guidance from an expert florist. A lovely and creative way to spend time together on this special day.
