Mum’s the Word

Whether it’s your mum, gran, favourite aunt or simply someone special, we have a round-up of some unique places to take your special person on Mother’s Day.

Queen for the Day
Leeds Castle, often referred to as the Castle of Queens’ (as six medieval queens have called it home), certainly lives up to its other moniker as the loveliest castle in the world’ when it comes to the beautiful moat, grounds and gardens including Mediterranean terraces. It is also home to the unique Dog Collar Museum and 2,400 yew tree maze, which when viewed from the centre mimics a queen’s crown.


Mother Nature
Wilderness Woods, Hadlow Down, are hosting a Herbal High Tea and Well-being Treatments for mothers on Mother’s Day. Treat and nourish your mum with a springtime walk in the woods, a taster’ treatment session and delicious high tea.


Mother’s ruin’

We have a plethora of gin distilleries in the South East, why not book a tour to learn about the process and of course sample some of the many varieties. 


Girl Power
Feel the power of steam as you travel in style through the beautiful Sussex countryside, aboard the Wealden Rambler, the Bluebell Railway afternoon tea train. Enjoy a relaxing journey whilst enjoying a delicious afternoon tea.


Mother Ship
The Historic Dockyard Chatham is home to the television series Call the Midwife. If you and your mum are a fan of the series, you can explore where the real drama takes place and spot familiar locations whilst following a guided tour.


One way or a mother…
… you need to find the answers to escape. For a mum who loves a challenge, why not test her wits with an escape room? Great fun for all the family to take part in, you just have to cope with being locked in a room with one another! Escape Kent have different games including Missing’ – can you unravel the mystery surrounding Granny going missing’?


However you choose to spend Mother’s Day with your very special person make sure it’s to the maximum and take plenty of photos as a mumento to capture the day!
