Top Treats for Mother’s Day

Whether it’s afternoon tea, a glass of fizz or a facial, we’ve got it covered with our round-up.

Mother’s Day is fast approaching and there is a plethora of lovely things you can do in London to treat that special woman in your life. It doesn’t need to be limited to just your mum though; it’s a great excuse to go out for a special meal, or have a beauty treatment with anyone you enjoy spending time with. There are plenty of offers on, and here are our favourite spots for an indulgent treat.
