London has a lot to offer for anyone looking to plan a special occasion, and with Mother’s Day on the horizon it’s time to start planning an incredible weekend in the big city.
Treat your mother to something very special this year by booking a room in the stunning Park Avenue Bayswater Inn; you’ll be able to take advantage of the amazing London discount hotels and enjoy the very best breakfast Bayswater has to offer.
Now let’s take a look at some of the stunning things you and your mum could get up to, on a weekend you’ll never forget.
Afternoon tea in London is unlike any other afternoon tea.
There is an incredible range on offer, and some truly stunning locations to grab a helping spread across the whole city.
From luxury hotels serving Indian afternoon tea, or a tour bus that roams the city and serves you incredible treats, to classic institutions like Fortnum & Mason’s offering the service fit for a Royal.
Enjoy stunning finger sandwiches, gorgeous pastries and delectable treats whilst you sip on the best cuppa you’ve ever had- English heaven!
Pottery Painting Classes
If you fancy doing something a little more creative, then pottery classes can be a great activity to enjoy together.
Some classes will have pottery ready for you to paint, or if you want to get a little more hands on, you can find plenty of workshops that will let you make your own piece.
It’s a great way to spend an afternoon, and at the end of the day you’ll have a souvenir to remember it by- although you will be responsible for the quality of the product!
Remember that giant red tower from the 2012 Olympics? Well that is actually the largest sculpture in the UK, and it is home to the world’s longest tunnel slide!
It’s an incredible adrenaline rush as you whizz through the 178 metre long tunnel and reach speeds exceeding 30 miles per hour!
If you’re feeling extra courageous you can even abseil from the top of the tower, which is 22 metres taller than the Statue of Liberty!
London has many iconic areas, but none are better known than its shopping districts.
Oxford Street is one of the busiest streets anywhere in the world, and is home to some of the most well known international fashion brands.
Covent Garden, Knightsbridge and Bond Street offer high end shopping and world class food; Carnaby Street and Leadenhall Market offer a boutique and frankly quite gorgeous atmosphere- there really is a lot to explore if you’re looking for a bit of retail therapy.
Catch a Show
The West End is one of the most highly regarded theatre districts in the world.
It is an area with a high density of historic and world class theatres, hosting world renowned plays and some of the best performances ever committed to the stage.
There you have it, the absolute best that London has to offer.
You’ll be sure to make memories that last a lifetime with your mum, all whilst enjoying the comforts of the best hotel near Bayswater London; The Bayswater Inn Hotel.
