Afternoon Tea at the Wallace Restaurant
Head on down to West London’s Wallace Collection, not only to enjoy the grand townhouse’s striking collection of fine art, but for the bright conservatory outside, which serves up tea, refreshments and brilliant breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea menus. With meticulously selected and finely prepared meals, you can expect avocado on toast, a diverse selection of teas and coffees, all under a naturally lit and relaxing conservatory environment.
Culpeper Roof Garden
Hidden on the roof of the Culpeper in Whitechapel’s Commercial Street, this roof garden is the perfect place to bring a mum with a taste for greenery. It can be difficult to find green spaces in London, and on Mother’s Day why not get a breath of fresh air with your parents, soaking in the view over an East London brew.
Bluebird in Chelsea
The Bluebird in Chelsea is one of the most iconic West London bars. With relaxed sofas and indoor plants, the Bluebird is a restaurant and bar which screams modest classiness. If you and your mum are looking for that perfect cocktail curated by master mixologists, then the Bluebird is the place to be.
A day at the V & A
If it’s an experience you’re after, then the V & A is always a Mother’s Day crowd pleaser. With rolling exhibitions every year and a permanent exhibit which forms the largest design collection in the world, the Victoria and Albert Museum is a gallery which will please all tastes and inspire every mind that walks through its grand Victorian doors. Mother’s Day this year will see two unique exhibitions which might draw in mothers. The Christian Dior Designer of Dreams exhibition charts the history of the iconic fashion designer, whilst Rachel Kneebone’s ebony ceramic sculptures will provide a delicately refined addition to the springtime collection. Regardless of whether you and your mother visit the temporary exhibitions, the V and A is the perfect way to enjoy and celebrate your family, and most importantly, your mother.
