Mother’s Day is fast approaching, so where will you be taking your mum on Sunday 26th March?  There’s no better choice than Bath, the home of a million mum-friendly activities from spa days to afternoon tea.

Here are some of the best ways you can treat your mum in Bath this Mother’s Day, so start planning now!

  1. An amazing dining experience

Bath is a foodie’s paradise, with a huge number of restaurants and eateries to suit all tastes. Look out for the special Mother’s Day menus and offers that are bound to be popping up soon, and take mum for a lavish three-course dinner in one of the city’s best dining establishments.

  1. The ultimate pamper session

If your mum is like most mums, she works incredibly hard juggling all kinds of things at once. What better way to treat her than with a day of total relaxation and pampering? Make your mum feel special by booking into a fabulously extravagant spa day. You’re spoilt for choice in Bath, the unofficial spa capital of the UK. There are hundreds of packages, treatments and facilities available, from the Gainsborough Bath Spa and Bath Priory Hotel Day Spa to the smaller boutiques and beauty parlours dotted throughout the city. Of course, at the heart of the city’s spa scene is the Thermae Bath Spa, where you can soak your cares away in hot thermal waters. There are bound to be special offers available just for Mother’s Day too, so make sure you snap them up.

  1. Shopping heaven

If you can’t decide what gift to get your mum this Mother’s Day, why not let her choose it for herself? Take her on a day exploring Bath’s amazing shopping scene, which really does have something for everyone. It boasts all the biggest and best high street shops, but is also known for its independent shopping scene and has many unique boutiques, designer stores and quirky, unusual shops.

  1. A taste of culture

Bath’s theatre scene is thriving at the moment, so if your mum is a big culture buff – book some front row seats at the Theatre Royal, Bath Pavilion or Rondo Theatre and get all glammed up for a night out at the theatre. You can find current theatre listings at the Visit Bath website.

  1. Afternoon tea with a twist

There’s no nicer way to spend quality time with your mum than over a tower of delicate, beautifully-made cakes, scones and sandwiches. Spend the afternoon in leisurely style at one of Bath’s many elegant spots for a fabulous afternoon tea, including The Pump Room, No 15 Great Pulteney and The Jane Austen Centre Regency Tea Rooms.

Why not make a weekend of it?

If you really want to do something special for mum, treat her to a weekend away in the fantastic city of Bath – after all, there’s so much to explore, you’ll definitely want more time to see it all! Snap up one of Bath Holiday Rentals’ elegant, luxurious properties right in the heart of the city centre and make it your home away from home for the weekend.
