Time to drop some hints... ideas for Mother's Day

Jenai Laignel / 20 February 2015

Mothering Sunday is just around the corner, so why not tell them how you'd really like to spend the day? A trip to London could be the perfect solution. Here's Saga's guide to the best things to do in our capital city on Mothers' Day.

Afternoon tea

Quintessentially English and utterly indulgent, an afternoon tea with champagne could be just what the doctor ordered this year.

For generations, this has been known as the ultimate 'special treat', so tell your kids how much you'd love to not make the tea for once, and celebrate with luxury sandwiches, pastries and – naturally – homemade scones with clotted cream and jam. Divine.

Catch a West End show

With many a spring deal to be grabbed, now is the perfect time to see that West End show you have always dreamed of watching.

With so many options to choose from (we recommend the hilarious Kinky Boots).

Get pampered

Especially ideal if you have a daughter, every woman needs a spot of pampering from time to time.

London is known for its luxurious spas, many of which can be found in the heart of the capital. From massages to manicures, you deserve to be treated.

Go shopping

One of the most well-known fashion hot spots in the world, London is every woman's dream.

Spend a day in Regent Street's Liberty – a favourite with mums and a truly delightful shopping experience. As well as browsing through the opulent, boutique-style clothes and home ware, the Liberty Café is the ideal setting for 'ladies who lunch'.
