Luckies Guide to Mother’s Day Activities around the UK


Posted by:Luckies on 01-03-2016

Let’s face it, does your mum really want to go for a boring Sunday lunch down the local pub with that dodgy Elvis impersonator that is in serious need of a holiday this Mother’s Day? We didn’t think so. Why not show your appreciation this Mother’s Day by taking your mum on one of the cool activities below instead? If she’s a wandermum (wanderlust mum, get it?!) like ours, what she’ll really want is a Scratch Map UK & Ireland along side one of the exciting activities below so she can get started removing all that foil…

Murder Mystery on the British Pullman

Okay, so this one’s for the big spenders out there. Whilst tickets don’t come cheap for this little excursion, it’s definitely worth it. Step back in time with your mum and enter a world of intrigue and romance with this unforgettable round-trip through the Kent countryside. With a professional ‘whodunit’ mystery acted out in your carriage you’ll also get a five course meal, champagne AND wine. If you weren’t your mum’s favourite before, you will be after this.

Zipwiring – Snowdonia, North Wales

Mum’s more of the adrenalin junkie type? If she’s never been to Wales before, zip wiring at 100mph through Snowdonia is a good place to start. Zip World Snowdonia is home to Europe’s longest and fasted zip line, with many describing It as “the nearest thing to flying”. If that isn’t enough to get her heart beating, you can follow it with off-road driving in Perthshire, Scotland and scratch off both Wales and Scotland on your Scratch Map UK & Ireland.

The Beatles Fab Four Taxi Tour – Liverpool

If your mum’s a Beatles fanatic and a bit of a ‘Day Tripper,’ take her on the award winning ‘The Beatles Fab Four Taxi Tour’ where you’ll enjoy a guided black cab tour of ‘A Day in the Life’ of the Beatles and all the significant Beatles landmarks through the city and suburbs of Liverpool. Once you ‘Get Back’ home though she may be pining for ‘Yesterday’ but don’t worry, you can cheer her up by helping her remove the foil from Liverpool on her scratch map.

Afternoon Tea at Sketch – London

Don’t worry, this isn’t your ordinary afternoon tea. Treat your mum this Sunday to a Michelin star awarded afternoon tea at sketch, a quirky, 18th century townhouse tea room that transforms into a cocktail lounge every evening. With a menu created to catch your eye, you and your mum can indulge in pastries, macaroons, sandwiches and fizz whilst taking in the curious and striking surroundings.
