Treat your mum to a 2-night luxury weekend stay in one of our Manchester aparthotel, CitySuites and CitySuites II.

We are just a stone’s throw from Selfridges and the Arndale, meaning you can come and go into Manchester city centre super easily.

While both of our aparthotel have a luxury pool area featuring a hot tub, CitySuites II also had the added bonus of a steam room – open exclusively to our guests and residents.


2. Bottomless Brunch In Manchester

Bottomless Brunch has always been a solid idea for various occasions, and it's especially true for Mother's Day. With plenty of eats around the city, you and mum can enjoy a hearty bottomless brunch - with bottomless drinks for a fun, memorable day. 


3. Candlelight Concerts in Manchester

Take your mum to an astonishing Candlelight Concert in Manchester this Mother's Day, and witness one of 2024's magical performances. With numerous events orchestrated by Candlelight, there's not a moment to miss - and with Mother's Day coming up, there are plenty of concerts by Candlelight to gift your mother this year. Book yours today. 


4. Musicals in Manchester 


A musical often comes with great entertainment, catchy tunes and evening to remember; so why not book one for your mum this Mother's Day? With the list of musicals available from mid-March to the start of April, buying your mum a ticket is a fantastic way to say that you appreciate them!


5. Enjoy a Sunday afternoon walk together

Take a scenic walk around Greater Manchester's many walkable hikes and parks. The walks range from easier treks to more challenging hills - all equally picturesque. And if your mum enjoys a friendly nature walk, this idea won't be a bad shout at all. 

6. Get Cultural At The Manchester Museum's Reopening

If your mum enjoys culture, history, and everything in between, then Manchester's vast number of museums are available to book for Mother's Day and beyond. The numerous galleries and museums available in the city range from artistic exhibitions to historical showings. Explore more using the link below!


7. Cook Together At Food Sorcery


Cooking is the ultimate form of bonding, and in our opinion, you can't go wrong with Food Sorcery's 'Cook Together' is a fantastic option to do so. There's a high selection of foods you and your mum could go for, from the delicate recipes from Japan to the intensive heat of Mexican cuisine. 


8. Compete In The Cube Live

Let's be honest, some mums can be competitive, and a fun little family rivalry can be had within Manchester's very own 'The Cube' located at Arndale. The Cube is home to many games and challenges as seen in ITV's own live adaptation. Booking is essential, but the experience is more than worth the price for Mother's Day.


9. Begin Your Mother’s Day With A Distillery Tour


For mums and other Gin lovers, we recommend booking yourselves one of Manchester's Gin Making Experiences, and we happened to find a great one for pairs! Manchester Gin has a 'Gin Making For Two' session that's perfect for you and mum, so check out their list of experiences below. 


10. Spa Experience At King Street Townhouse

King Street Townhouse is quite popular for their spa experience, ranging from hotel and spa packages to body relaxation sessions by ESPA. Features like this often enhance an overnight stay, similar to our included swimming pool and gym when you book our aparthotel! But regardless, we still highly recommend King Street Townhouse's spa experience. 

11. Shopping Spree At Manchester's Various Stores

Shopping in Manchester is quite exciting, as it's range of shops are vast. You've got the mega shopping centre Arndale right at the centre, the busier stores at Market Street, and of course the luxury brands at New Cathedral Street. The options are almost endless, so if your mum is into shopping, this won't be a bad idea! 


12. Go To One Of Manchester's Many Bars 

Manchester has MANY bars, and when we say that over half of them are unique, we aren't lying! There's plenty of bars in the city for you and your mum to enjoy, depending on your tastes. We have bars with golf, bars with arcades, and even bars in prisons (you're not really in prison - but the theme is quite fun). Explore more of Manchester's nightlife below.

When is Mother's Day in 2024? 

Mother’s Day in 2024 in the UK lands on the 10th of March, Sunday, right in the middle of the month. The good news? There's plenty to do in (and around) this special day to make sure your mum has the best time.
