Say a proper Yorkshire I love you this Mother’s Day

Forget boring old chocolate and flowers, let mum know you really care with a magical weekend in York this Mother’s Day! In this blog, our boutique hotel in York explores what there is to do…


See the sights

There are so many iconic attractions in York it can be difficult to choose where to go first. For a spectacular Mothering Sunday, our boutique hotel in York would recommend heading to York Minster. Explore one of the world’s most magnificent Cathedrals – discover Roman roots and the part the Minster played in Viking York. If you are brave enough head to the roof for the most breath-taking view of our ancient city!


Hit the spa

Let your mum know that she is appreciated with a day at the spa. Head over to The Grand York for a luxurious day of relaxation and pampering that will leave you and your mum feeling truly rejuvenated. There are a number of packages available that include wonderful treatments and access to the spa facilities where you will find an indoor swimming pool, aromatic steam room, Nordic sauna, Jacuzzi and relaxation room.


Say it with food

After your hard afternoon seeing the sights and relaxing in the spa, head back to our boutique hotel in York’s restaurant, No.88 Walmgate, for a delicious Mother’s Day Sunday Roast with all the trimmings. If you aren't in the mood for a huge roast, indulge in a quintessentially English afternoon tea complete with a range of tea, sandwiches, cakes and of course scones with jam and cream. Make your afternoon tea extra special with a glass of prosecco! 


See a show

With several theatres and cinemas in York, we aren’t short of a show or two! Head to The York Theatre Royal or Grand Opera House for an evening of sophistication, the City Screen Picturehouse for artsy films or the Everyman cinema for a relaxed evening of mainstream movies.


Make it a weekend celebration

At one point Walmgate had 20 pubs on the street, today it is a cool mix of independent restaurants, bars and shops and continues to Fossgate – which boasts even more independent shops, delis, bars and restaurants. Walmgate Bar proudly stands at the end of the road. It is the only existing bar in York with a Barbican and forms part of the York City Walls walk.
