Mother’s Day is a special day honouring Mums and motherhood. It is celebrated all over the world on different days of the year. In the UK we celebrate it 3 weeks before Easter. The date changes every year but it is always a Sunday in March or April. In 2019, Mother’s Day falls on Sunday 31st March.

Edinburgh is the perfect city to visit with your Mum on Mother’s Day. Here is Edinburgh Tourist’s pick of the best things to do on a day trip …

Mother’s Day Pampering

Mums are busy people, so a relaxing spa day could be just the ticket. Kick back and chill out at one of Edinburgh’s tranquil spas. A spa voucher for two would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift, which you can use together at a later date.

Shopping with Mum

If your Mum is a shopaholic, there’s a lot to keep her busy here in Edinburgh. High street shops, department stores, designer brands, shopping centres and gift shops can all be found in the city centre. Check out this shopping guide for more information.

Take in a Show

How about a night out at the theatre? This Mother’s Day weekend, choose from Wannabe: The Spice Girls Show at Edinburgh Playhouse, Remembering The Movies at the Festival Theatre, or The BBC Big Band at the Queens Hall. For more ideas, search the what’s on calendar.

Dine in Style

Take your Mum out on the town for a slap up meal. There are so many great restaurants in Edinburgh to choose from! For an elegant treat, how about Afternoon Tea in a beautiful tea room?

Things to See and Do

The list of things to do in Edinburgh is endless. It really depends what your Mum is into. Perhaps a day on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, a Harry Potter Walking Tour or an Outlander Day Trip over the city.
