Still stuck for ideas for Mother’s Day this weekend? Get online now and book a hotel for some bonding time and unusual activities around the UK, with the help of the team at Best Western Great Britain.

1.    Thermae Bath Spa Bath, Somerset

Bath is a stunning city and boasts Britain’s only naturally warm, mineral-rich waters, perfect for relieving stress just as the Romans did millennia ago. The open-air rooftop pool is particularly spectacular, and you and Mum can enjoy fantastic views over the historic city as you relax and gossip. See beautiful Bath and all its glory.

2.    Slingsby Gin Experiences, Spirit of Harrogate Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Enjoy a touch of mother’s ruin! Head behind the scenes at the Spirit of Harrogate distillery, learning about the history of gin and receiving a special mixology lesson in the art of cocktail-making. Oh, and plenty of free samples. 

3.    Orchids Festival, Kew Gardens Richmond, London

The Orchids Festival is being held at the internationally-famous Kew Gardens. Stroll through the tropical greenhouse surrounded by rainbows of colour, with highlights including Thai-inspired orchid bouquets and handcrafted floating umbrellas. 

4   Clip ‘n Climb Ilkley, West Yorkshire

Clip ‘n Climb in Ilkley is offering free entrance for adventurous mums who book with their children. With over 20 climbing-based activities, there’s something for every ability. Brave the heights and climb out of your comfort zone!

5.    Alpaca Walk and Cream Tea, Middle England Farm Alpacas Solihull, West Midlands

This adorable 90-minute experience will see you and your mum pair up to walk one of the farm’s fluffy alpacas around the site, enjoying views of the other animals along the way. You’ll finish up back at the farm where you will both enjoy a delicious cream tea!
