Mother’s day is the one day a year designed to spoil that special lady in your life. If you are wanting to do something extra special this year to show your appreciation to the best mum in the world there are plenty of treats available in Edinburgh to help spoil your mum this Mother’s Day. Whether you live close by or just fancy a day trip to the Scottish capital, there are plenty of activities in and around the city to make sure your mum has the best day possible.
The team at Quartermile’s new-build apartments take you through just a few potential Mother’s Day plans for you to mull over.
What better way to say ‘I love you’ than with gin. Summerhall’s Pickering’s Gin are offering ‘buy one get mum’ free on tours of their gin making facilities especially for Mother’s day. This includes Pickering’s Pea-cocktail made just for Mum. Tours last one hour and include a tipple or two to taste. Whilst you’re there in the beautiful Summerhall why not treat her to a spot of lunch at the Royal Dick Bar and take a tour of the gallery spaces at Summerhall.
If gin is not quite her style why not make it a sophisticated occasion and treat her to a lavish afternoon tea at The Palace of Holyrood. There you can enjoy a decadent selection of cakes, pastries and sandwiches, all made with delicious local ingredients. The finest chinaware and loose-leaf tea will make the occasion even more special. And if all that’s enough, as an extra treat, the Palace of Holyrood will supply Mum with some gorgeous flowers to take home.
A day of all-out relaxation is sure to please. Why not provide your mum with a pamper session this mother’s day with a luxury spa package. And there is no place more luxurious than the One Spa at the Sheraton Hotel in Edinburgh. Catch up and relax in the sumptuous sauna and thermal rooms. The One spa offers a range of packages and offers, why not try out their signature spa experience, Escape at One, a calming collection of heat and water treatments taking inspiration from the luxury Celtic and Roman spas of days gone by. Make sure to try out the iconic Hydropool too. Escape at One is £70 per person, lasting 3 hours. This also includes access to the indoor pool and gym facilities.
If it’s good enough for the Queen, it’s safe to say the next activity on this list is probably good enough for mum too. If gin tours and spa days have made it onto the Mother’s Day rota in previous years it might be time to try out something new. And a day out on The Royal Yacht Britannia could be the kind of exciting change set to impress this Mother’s Day. Famously described by Elizabeth herself as ‘the one place I can truly relax’ this little slice of luxury is guaranteed to please.
On board you can take a tour of the state apartments and enjoy a cream tea overlooking the beautiful Firth of Forth with a glass of something sparkling in hand.
If you want to experience all the luxury Edinburgh has to offer 24/7 why not take a tour of the luxurious apartments at Quartermile. The stunning range of 2,3 and 4 bedroom apartments overlooking The Meadows, perfectly located so you can easily explore this beautiful city.
