A Special Treat for a Special Lady

Here at Wood’s Travel, we believe every Mum is one in a million and that’s why we give them a little extra love on Mother’s Day.  Maybe it’s not just your Mum, but a Step Mum, Mother-in-Law, Grandma, or a special Aunt.  The list of women who deserve some extra love really is endless and we each have at least one truly special lady in our lives. Looking for a special gift that’ll be unique and meaningful, and not just for Mother’s Day. Perhaps some of these ideas could be just the thing to treat her.

Afternoon Tea

Fancy a change from your usual lunch plans? Why not treat her to a delicious traditional afternoon tea. Who doesn’t love fluffy scones, dainty cakes, and pretty pastries?  Regardless of what she prefers to put on her plate, it’s sure to be an experience to remember.

We have trips throughout the year which include a delicious afternoon tea, including a visit to the world-renowned Sir Harold Hillier Gardens in Hampshire where you can enjoy a cream tea.  Maybe an afternoon tea cruise on the River Thames in Windsor or stay a little closer to home with afternoon tea at the magnificent Goodwood House.

London Weekend

How about a trip to London, our great Capital City, for a weekend of adventure? Whether you pay a visit to the great sights such as Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, which this year has a special exhibition to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee or take a shopping trip to remember – there’s plenty to see and do which will keep you entertained all day long.


Looking for something especially unique? Why not plan a trip to the theatre!  Whether you go to London’s West End, or visit a local theatre, there’s something about the thrill of watching a live show which is extra special.

We offer a variety of excursions to performances and shows throughout the year, so click on the curtains to reveal what’s on offer.

Unique Dining Experiences

Is your Mum a bit of a foodie? Does she like to try new and different places? Why not consider booking a trip that offers something a little different to your typical ‘high end’ dining experience.

There are some wonderful attractions to visit which include a meal or perhaps the more traditional ploughman’s lunch or fish and chips.  In June, stroll around historic Hever Castle with its award-winning gardens with lunch served in the Castle’s pavilion restaurant or take a cruise from Southampton and sail along the rivers, Itchen, Hamble and Test with wonderful views of the coastline and Hampshire countryside and enjoy a lunch of Fish & chips and mushy peas!

In fact, there are many day excursions which include a meal and in particular some wonderful river cruises. Look at some of the other beautiful places we’re visiting this year by clicking on the image below.

A Special Day Out

Is there a special place that she loved visiting as a child? Somewhere she’s always wanted to go, but has never had the means or opportunity to do so? Whether it’s taking that trip up to the Lake District she’s always hoped to go on, or a visit to London to explore the sights she’s never had the time to see. Why not consider a Woods Wish Day?

Wish Days offer you the opportunity to have your own chauffeur driven car for the day. You’ll be collected from your home in our luxury six-seater Mercedes and taken to your destination of choice! You may already have a specific destination in mind, but if you don’t then please do contact us and we can help you to research and plan your day. It doesn’t have to be just a single day either. Looking to go further afield? We can organise overnight stays for you and plan an entire weekend itinerary.

So, plan your Mum’s dream day with us at Woods Travel!
