Amazing Mother’s Day ideas in London

Look, it's a cliche for a reason: going for a fancy afternoon tea really will make your Mum feel like you care, especially if you refrain from messily scoffing cream buns like Paddington on the rampage. Mariage Frères’s Parisian style offering (from £59pp) is exceedingly pretty, or go left-field with Pan Pacific's Lunar tea (from £68pp), offering Cantonese-style buns alongside the dainty little sandwiches.

Head to Elephant & Castle food market Mercato Metropolitano's garden bar on Mother's Day and you're in for a treat: mums get a free drink if they come with kids in tow, whether that's a craft beer, a cocktail, a glass of wine, or something altogether more virtuous. It's the perfect warm up for a greedy afternoon sampling the bounteous food options here, from arancini to Venezualan arepas.
