The Best Places to Enjoy Mother’s Day in Manchester

If your mum isn’t someone who’s direct about what they want for Mother’s Day, then the dreaded battle between should I get the bouquet of flowers? or would she prefer a bottle of perfume? often ensues. Sometimes, it’s better to opt for quality time together and do something that the both of you can talk about for weeks afterwards — and there are plenty of opportunities to do just that in Manchester.

Whether your mum is visiting for the weekend or you’re lucky enough to call Manchester your home city, then read on to discover the best places to enjoy Mother’s Day in Manchester on 31 March 2019.
