Mother’s Day Marvels

Mother, Mum, Mummy, Mater or Ma – it’s time to treat the number one woman in your life – Sunday lunch at her favourite restaurant and/or flowers may score you the requisite brownie points, but if you’re looking for something a little different this year, read on…

Reach for the Sky

Add some sparkle to her Mother's Day with a glass of English sparkling wine at the highest bar on the South Coast, the Nyetimber Sky Bar in Brighton’s British Airways i360 pod.

Enjoy the fizz while gliding gently up to Glass in hand, glide up gently to 450ft above the seafront on a 25-minute 'flight' on the viewing pod, offering a bird’s eye view of the city and sweeping views along the Sussex coastline. On a clear day you can even see the Isle of Wight!

Mother’s Day packages include the flight and fizz or a flight and Sunday lunch.

Lunch and Louboutins!

34 Mayfair, the Caprice Group’s grill restaurant in Mount Street, has partnered with its neighbour Christian Louboutin to offer a luxury lunch date for your Mother: lunch in the grill, followed by a complimentary private shopping consultation at the couturier cobbler.

The offer is available between Monday 25th March and Friday 5th April.

Spa Time at the Lanesborough

The landmark hotel on Hyde Park Corner has introduced a ‘Mother of Mine’ one-day experience, including a La Prairie Lift facial and use of the spa’s sauna, steam and experience shower, followed by a traditional afternoon tea.

Available from 1 March to 30 April.

Mamma Mia!

Another London hotel and another experience. The City’s South Place Hotel is screening the family favourite film ‘Mamma Mia!’ in its ‘Enchanted Garden’ an urban oasis with palm trees and waterfalls (and a retractable roof in case of unfavourable weather!)

Enjoy the film with a Martin Miller's gin cocktail and homemade popcorn. Every mother receives ticket price includes a Martin Miller's goody bag – or you can upgrade to a Diptyque package, which includes a ‘Baies’ candle.

Petersham Nurseries Pasta Masterclass

If your mother wants to make ‘pasta like mamma make’ send or go with her to Petersham Nurseries’ Covent Garden outpost for a pasta workshop. This introductory class teaches traditional dough recipes and covers classic pasta shapes including ravioli and tagliatelle, as well as simple sauces.

In true workshop style you can take home your freshly-made pasta, along with pasta flour, organic Haye Farm eggs and homemade tomato sauce.
