Mothers Day in London
The Vintage Ladies Afternoon Tea at the Mandeville is the ultimate Mother’s Day treat. Described by Condé Nast Traveller magazine as “the best in all of London” this tower of delights is the epitome of class, featuring finger sandwiches, lemon pound cake, jam roly poly, apple turnover, individual treacle tarts and, of course, the classic scones with clotted cream and jam.
After all, mum deserves it!

What about a Sunday roast to show mum how much you love her? The Reform Social & Grill is also the perfect setting for some evening cocktails. Or try out a cocktail master class with the masters themselves.

Maybe you want to treat mum to an overnight stay and treat her to a Spring getaway in the heart of London.
She can wake up to a complimentary Full English Breakfast and enjoy all of London at her doorstep. Perhaps some shopping? A tour of nearby galleries including The Wallace Collection? Or a stroll to the Marylebone Farmer’s Market? She will be spoilt for choice with options and the whole team at The Mandeville Hotel.
A cooking class? La Cucina Caldesi is a family-run establishment offering classes where you can try your hand at emulating dishes from the family’s native Tuscany. A true master class in perfect pastas, these intimate sessions give you a taste of authentic Italy. The mother’s day special class focuses on chocolate and macaroons, and participants get their wares gift boxed to take home with a cotton apron!
