Mother’s Day in London

Show your mum some love this Mother’s Day with our guide to celebrating Mothering Sunday in London

Mother's Day Biscuiteers Afternoon Tea

Mums deserve high praise all year round, but Mothering Sunday is the ultimate excuse to treat your ma, or the mums in your life, to a lovely time in the city.

We know what it’s like to get caught off guard before the big day comes around (Sunday March 22 2020, for your information) so we’ve put together a guide to help you plan something nice.

Whether you want to take your mum for a cheeky Mumtini, relax at one of London’s exquisite spas, go for a little beauty shopping spree or send her a stunning bunch of flowers to tell her you’re thinking of her, we’ve got your back. This year, give your mum (or mother figure) the thanks she deserves for raising you right – and spend some quality time with your number one woman.
