Sweep her off her feet for Mother's Day on Sunday 11th March with a trip to London town! From delicious dainty treats to dazzling days out, the capital is the perfect place to spoil the person in your life who deserves it most.
1. Embrace the fresh air and seek out the sprawling green spaces in London for a springtime stroll. Hyde Park (our neighbour and our favourite, of course!) is one of the largest of London’s Royal Parks, boasting London’s oldest boating lake, The Serpentine. Wherever you are in London, you can take in beautiful spaces and stunning views as you enjoy a peaceful afternoon with your mum.
2. Mother's Day Jazz Afternoon Tea at Corus Hotel Hyde Park is the ultimate on-trend treat. Sit down with a glass of rosé champagne and watch the world go by before sampling tempting savoury bites and exquisite cakes (the mini dark chocolate & orange tart is to die for!). Complemented by a range of refreshing teas and ambient notes of live jazz from our fantastic duo, your mum’s afternoon will be one of absolute bliss.
The season of romance is upon us. Flowers bloom, birds tweet, and at Corus Hotels we are busy perfecting our dashing Valentine’s Afternoon Tea menu. Smoked salmon & avocado croissants, soft whipped champagne & chocolate mousse, and to-die-for white chocolate & raspberry scones are all waiting to delight your senses…
The new year is a time to embrace change and look forward to future adventures - which can be difficult when everyone still feels distinctly like a Christmas pudding (stodgy, steeped in brandy)… January is well underway, and with many resolutions already discarded like shiny wrappers from the Quality Street you’re not meant to be eating, it might be time for a new strategy.
Here at Corus Hotel Hyde Park, we’re lucky enough to be in the perfect location to enjoy London, and we want to inspire you to enjoy it too – even in the bleak midwinter. There’s so much to do all year round and now that the Christmas rush is over, London can be experienced at a more leisurely pace.
We recently asked our guests at the hotel and on Facebook to share with us their favourite things about London in January, and here are some of their answers…
“I LOVE the January Sales”
It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyway. There’s nothing like nabbing a bargain to freshen up your wardrobe or your home in preparation for spring, and there’s nowhere like London for a bit of retail therapy.
“Seeing the lights of Lumiere London Light Festival”
London is lit up in a glorious nocturnal art exhibition with more than 50 artworks from 18th-21st January. It’s free to visit this dazzling display, which is the UK’s largest light festival – perfect for brightening up your January.
Corus Hotels were created with the belief that warm, friendly hospitality, personalised experiences & inviting settings are essential to a well-travelled life.
