Well-Priced Mother's Day Treat Ideas in London

February 26, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 172

Mums deserve to get treated well every day of the year but Mothering Sunday is the perfect reason to spoil them and yourself. Why not take a day or weekend trip down to London? The city is a constant hive of activity where any mum will find something of interest.

It doesn't all have to be about splurging as you can find free entertainment in the city, and a surprising amount of reasonably priced food joints. From exhibitions to shows to workshops, take your pick from what's on in London that doesn't cost the earth.


Mums will love the aptly-named Coffee Concert, a morning session of classical music. Hosted by the Orange Tree Theatre, the Mother's Day event will feature a performance by the Allegri Quartet. Tickets cost just £15.

There are many musicals on in London in March. Some of the best known names are Mamma Mia, Legally Blonde, Blood Brothers and Billy Elliott. Let your mum choose what to see by heading to one of Soho's numerous cheap ticket booths that sell last minute deals for great prices.


Venture to the Jewish Museum for a fascinating black and white photography exhibition by photo journalist Judah Passow, documenting contemporary Jewish life. "No Place Like Home" showcases the lives of Jewish communities and individuals throughout 21st Century Britain. Entrance will set you back £7.50 with a charity donation included.

Catch the last day of "Sense and the City: Smart, Connected and on the Move" at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden. The exhibition sheds light on how technology is shaping our experience of modern London, how our perceptions have changed and how it's likely to affect us in the future.


An active, exciting and emotional experience is Argentine Tango dance classes. Based in Central London, at the Danceworks studio, the workshops are available for beginners and intermediate level dancers for £7 a go. Held by professional dancers Doni and Liz, the classes are well-structured and invigorating.

Dance fans will also appreciate the Egyptian Dance Workshop by professional oriental dancers Hossam and Serena Ramzy. Participants can choose between taking part for the whole weekend or just one day. The dancing will be taught to the sounds of live music.

For those seeking a bit of calm and stress relief, a workshop on a new age healing technique will be just right. The class on the Light Grids technique lasts 6 hours and aims to leave participants in a relaxed and blissful state of mind. £55 isn't a high price to pay for a valuable new skill and a day's worth of relaxation.

After saving money on activities and events, why not spend that little bit more and spend the night in London. It will give you more freedom and you won't have to worry about catching the last train or bus home. Most good hotels will serve up a hearty breakfast so that's just another great Mother's Day treat. Whether you choose a hotel London Mayfair or a hotel on the outskirts of the city, it will add to your overall weekend experience and leave your mum happy and ready to start a new week.
