Mother’s Day 2023: Where to celebrate in London


Looking to treat mum to something extra special this year? As you should be! Once you’ve got the perfect gift sorted, it’s time to think of the day itself. Luckily London’s hotspots care about her just as much as you do, and there’s plenty to get stuck into when 19 March rolls around. Read on for Luxury London’s guide to celebrating Mother’s Day 2023 in style.

Bōkan 37, Canary Wharf

Treat the leading lady in your life to a sky-high fine dining experience at Bōkan 37 on 19 March. Nestled in the heart of Canary Wharf and looming 37 floors above the city, enjoy a bottomless brunch in the clouds, complemented by panoramic views of London’s iconic skyline.

Created by executive chef Robert Manea, the three-course brunch menu celebrates seasonal spring produce. Kick celebrations off with a glass of fizz and a toast to mum before indulging in gastronomical dishes of venison tartare, croissant pudding and Avruga caviar beurre blanc, Yorkshire rhubarb, tomato marmalade and ricotta Pugliese, and cod with fresh pea, wild garlic and pea velouté before finishing with the Bōkan Rocher — a hazelnut crémeux with crunchy praline, chocolate hazelnut glaze and stracciatella ice cream.

Take a trip to Italy for a festa in famiglia with a Mother’s Day brunch at the award-winning Theo Randall at the InterContinental Park Lane. Inspired by traditional dishes and utilising the best seasonal ingredients, this beautifully-presented brunch fizzes with delight thanks to a pairing of unlimited Prosecco, Hugo Spritz or Negroni Sbagliato.

Start with an antipasti buffet featuring poached octopus and prawn with potatoes, celery and garlic before fresh pasta roll-filled with spinach, ricotta and parmesan, and medium rare Hereford beef sirloin with fresh borlotti beans, roasted datterini tomatoes, salsa verde and wild rocket. End on a sweet note with Theo’s Tiramisu or a dessert platter to share. Bellissimo!

The George, Fitzrovia 

Perfect for wine enthusiasts looking for something different to celebrate Mother’s Day, book your slot at The George’s English Sparkling Wine masterclass on 11 March 2023. The event is the ultimate gift for oenophiles who want to learn more about home-grown varieties. Taking place in The George’s ruby-hued wine bar, guests can sample four delectable English wines — featuring more than 150 references from around the UK, including unique releases not available anywhere else — before enjoying a two-course lunch curated by culinary director James Knappett of the two-Michelin star Kitchen Table.

Aqua at The Shard, Southwark

In partnership with premium florist Flowerbx, Aqua Shard is complementing each Mother’s Day dining booking with a bouquet of 25 yellow tulips. Pair Aqua’s contemporary British dishes — including red prawns carpaccio, black Angus beef fillet, venison saddle and Neal’s Yard cheese — with unrivalled views of the city, topped off with your stunning bouquet, beautifully presented at the table.

Madison, St Paul’s 

It’s mum’s turn to be indulged and how better to do it than with a decadent dining experience at a rooftop retreat in the heart of London? Start the spoiling session with a glass of champagne or a cocktail while soaking in the views of St Paul’s. Throughout the day, resident DJs and guests Kedma and Mo Pleasure — known for their virtuoso instrumentals and powerhouse vocals — will be livening up the terrace and making Madison the place to be on Mother’s Day. 

Once suitably watered, tuck into a three-course menu featuring yellowfin tuna tartare, smoked tofu poke bowl, roast sirloin of Lake District beef or rigatoni alla vodka. The sweet selection doesn’t disappoint either, with chocolate chip pretzel pecan pie and saffron poached pear and cheese on offer.

The Londoner, Leicester Square

What’s better than a day spent celebrating with your children? A day spent celebrating without them. At least according to the team at luxury hotel The Londoner, which has enlisted legendary children’s entertainers Sharky & George to keep little ones out of sight and mind while mum tucks into a decadent afternoon tea at The Stage champagne bar, or lunch at the hotel’s Mediterranean restaurant Whitcomb’s. Alternatively, exchange your offspring for a robe and slippers, then sit back and enjoy some well-deserved peace and quiet in the serene spa. A perfect Mother’s Day indeed.


Quagliano’s, Green Park

Located in the heart of St James’, inside a beautiful art-deco ballroom, Quagliano’s is promising a sophisticated Mother’s Day experience. Treat your mum to a special lunch menu featuring whisky and maple cured salmon, wild mushroom and winter truffle risotto and a classic Sunday roast with 28-day-aged Hereford beef rib eye, duck fat potatoes, seasonal vegetables, Yorkshire pudding and port jus. For those with a sweet tooth, the pear and blackberry crumble cake, mulled wine and red currant sorbet, and chocolate raspberry fondant and tonka bean ice cream make for impressive desserts. 

Soulful sounds from Katy and Otty will complement the meal. Katy has performed with top artists including Justin Timberlake and Gary Barlow, while the Otty Quartet is a Motown and soul group that has previously performed at Glastonbury. After dinner, pick a cocktail from the Art Within Mixology menu, which is inspired by the four corners of the globe. Our top pick is the Aphrodite for the Mediterranean, a unique concoction of Ginepraio gin and Tio Pepe-infused sage, Italicus Rosolio di Bergamotto, Evangelista Ratafia and orange bitters.

Shangri-La The Shard, Southwark

This Mother’s Day, take your seat above the London skyline at Shangri-La The Shard and treat mum to the hotel’s Wellness in the Clouds experience. Start with a light swim in the Sky Pool surrounded by soft lighting and a gentle playlist, before heading to the Sky Sauna to take in views of the city below. After being met with a warm towel, cosy up poolside before being escorted to the spa’s specially-dedicated treatment rooms to slip into a state of serenity with a 60-minute aromatherapy massage.

Then head to the wisteria-clad Ting Restaurant for an Asian-inspired dining experience. Opt for the à la carte menu, which includes favourites such as salmon tartare and lo mein beef noodles, all of which can be elevated with a perfectly paired wine from an award-winning selection. What more could you want?

Galvin Bar at the Kimpton Fitzroy, Bloomsbury

Laurel’s On The Roof at the Mondrian Shoreditch

Overlooking the Shoreditch skyline, Laurel’s On The Roof at the Mondrian Shoreditch is the perfect place for an all-inclusive Mother’s Day celebration. Not only will Laurel’s treat mum to a free Sunday roast when guests book a table for four or more, but following an indulgent lunch, diners will also be able to enjoy an intimate showing of feel-good movie Mamma Mia in the Curtain Club’s screening room, with an array of post-dining refreshments available at the private bar.

Tuck into signature dishes, including a Cumberland sausage scotch egg and Malibu shrimp cocktail, to start and ethically-sourced joints of meat including roast loin of beef, roast chicken supreme, and oven-seared lamb rack with herb crust, all with the traditional trimmings. Sounds delicious to us…
