Afternoon Tea is not only a leisurely indulgence, perfect for treating our loved on, it’s a hot trend right now with plenty of variations to suit any taste. Cuthbert’s Bakehouse offers its traditional ‘Classic’ Afternoon Tea on vintage china with options for Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan diners, as well as a more contemporary ‘New Yorker’ Afternoon Tea with mini cheeseburgers and hot dogs in place of dainty finger sandwiches.

For an unparalleled luxury Afternoon Tea enjoyed with a glass of fine Champagne while taking in Liverpool’s breathtaking skyline, look no further than Panoramic 34.

For a fun and truly contemporary Mother’s Day treat the Baltic Social’s Afternoon Punk Tea (available for carnivores and veggies alike) features pretzels, salt and pepper chicken, veggie nacho cups and salted caramel popcorn brownies.

Learn about other amazing women

Mother’s Day is, by its nature a celebration of wonderful, inspirational women that we admire and look up to. Why not extend that celebration by visiting the Taking Liberties: Women’s Suffrage in Liverpool exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool?

Curated by the 1918 Club, a discussion forum for women that meets regularly in Liverpool and was established by Eleanor Rathbone, the free exhibition brings together objects relating to women’s suffrage in the city from the museum’s collections and explains their significance in the Liverpool campaign for the right to vote. It also features oral history recordings of the first hand experiences of Suffragettes (exhibition ongoing throughout 2018).

Take her out on the tiles

Liverpool’s cocktail and wine bars are the perfect place to treat Mum’s to a well deserved gin or maybe even a glass of fizz to toast her wonderfulness! The Alchemist and Neighbourhood both have extensive cocktail lists with unexpected flavours and flourishes to enjoy together.

For the wine connoisseur, why not treat her to a wine tasting session at Veeno or take advantage of the venue’s Mother’s Day offer – buy a delicious ‘Italia’ platter and get a bottle of wine for just £10 (with a free glass of Prosecco for Mum if you book online). Or if she’s more of a Gin Queen then why not treat her to a tipple in Jenever – set in a stunning split level Georgian Town House and with 120 speciality gins to choose from you’ll be her favourite for a long time to come!

Enjoy some friendly competition

If you enjoy a little friendly family rivalry with Mum, why not take her to Sugar & Dice a board game cafe in Liverpool city centre that boasts hundreds of classic and modern board games to keep you occupied for hours.

The cafe also offers a hearty menu of sandwiches, Pieminister Pies and Pizzadillas (Pizzas on a tortilla wrap) alongside teas, coffees, craft beers and wine. Best of three anyone?

Get her out in the great outdoors

Liverpool boasts a range of wonderful walks all within an hour of the city centre and easily accessible by public transport. So, if your Mum’s the outdoorsy type, when not get her out for a leisurely Mother’s Day walk? Waterloo to Hightown takes in Anthony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ attraction, with its iconic Iron Men, while Delamere Forest offers stunning woodland walks with lots of wildlife to be spotted.

For those with lots of stamina you could follow the 24k Wirral Coastal Walk route from Seacombe Ferry Terminal to Thurstaston Visitors Centre and Country Park, or for a shorter, more laid back stroll, why not try and amble round Sefton Park, taking in the Palm House and Boating Lake before popping to Lark Lane for a spot of lunch?
