Mother's Day in Hertfordshire

Mother’s Day is just around the corner (*Sunday 31st March* for those of you who've not been paying close attention), making now the perfect time to show the special lady in your life she's truly 'mum in a million'. 

And, if you're struggling to cast your mind beyond the standard bouquet of flowers, or perhaps you've overused the "this voucher entitles you to 1x day of quality time with your loving son/daughter" approach to showing your affections, it's time to breathe a sigh of relief. We’ve rounded up the top experiences from across the county to enjoy with mums, grans, step-mums and aunties, as well as those special women in your life who are just like a mum to you this Mother's Day... 

"A balanced life is a cupcake in each hand"

Life lesson #1 we've learnt from Mum? "A good cup of tea solves everything." Now, if we were to pair that cuppa with a scone, a spread of jam and a generous dollop of cream, we're pretty confident we could conquer the world. This Mother's Day, why not say a proper thank you for all her maternal advice by treating Mum to a delicious afternoon tea at Shendish Manor or Knebworth House? A piece of cake... 

"I’m not like a regular mom, I’m a cool mom"

If Mum's movie mad, a trip to Broadway Cinema & Theatre is the (picture) perfect way to show her you care. Whether she's into her chick-flicks, a classic comedy fan, or she's a real thrill-seeker, this iconic art deco venue in the heart of Letchworth Garden City is the perfect place for a cinema date with your leading lady. Pass the popcorn.

"I feel the need... the need for speed" 

Calling all adventure seekers. If you really want to race straight into Mum’s good books, it doesn’t get much more thrilling than a day on the track at Rye House Kart Raceway. Race the whole family around the circuit where World Champion Lewis Hamilton once honed his skills – how’s that for a seal of approval? Ready to race?

"Refresh, recharge, relax"

There’s really no more indulgent way to say thank you, than by booking Mum in for the ultimate pampering spa day. And where better to refresh, recharge and relax, than at Britain's original health spa, Champney's Tring? With a selection of Mother's Day treats to suit every budget, make memories this Mother’s day with an unforgettable Champney's spa day. Paternal pampering.

"Where the wild things are"

This Mother's Day, follow your paws to family favourite Paradise Wildlife Park who are offering free entry to Mothers on Sunday 31st March. With hundreds of exotic animals and even an adventure playground, bring out the big kid in her and book your tickets today. The cat's whiskers!

"Food glorious food"

Step away from the cookbook and indulge in a celebratory family meal out to really tickle the taste-buds this Mother's Day. Why not enjoy a special three-course lunch at the Cromwell Hotel in Stevenage, or take in the stunning panoramic views at the aptly named The View Bar & Kitchen in Welwyn? Food for thought.
