What’s On and Where to Eat This Mother’s Day
Show your appreciation this Mother’s Day, Sunday 27 March, with our curation of special events, experiences and dining
Bespoke Events and Experiences
There’s plenty to do at Canary Wharf this Mother’s Day. With a specially curated collection of experiences for ‘Mum & Me’ held from 23 to 27 March in Jubilee Place, look out for everything from calligraphy workshops and gin cocktail making classes with Bullards Spirits on 24 and 25 March.
Be the captain of the waters and pre-book a one-, two- or three-hour boating experience at GoBoat. The fun, self-drive boating experience begins from Bellmouth Passage where you and your mother – and up to six others – can navigate the beautiful docklands and look up at the spectacular architecture. Cruise past Big Easy and the stunning One Park Drive; and for two or three-hour boat rides, if the weather is nice, why not moor up and treat yourselves to a picnic? Check out M&S Simply Food’s guide for how to picnic like a pro here.
All That Jazz
Boisdale of Canary Wharf makes Sunday roasts a much more exciting experience than your average weekend lunch. The three-course meal champions the Great British roast; savour an18-hour slow roast dry-aged Scottish beef accompanied with goose fat roast potatoes, heritage vegetables and Yorkshire pudding, topped with a red wine gravy. Alternatively, diners can opt for the renowned Boisdale Dumfriesshire blackface haggis, bashed neeps and tatties, or the fish of the day. All accompanied to a fantastic Frank and Dean show. You’re sure to be tapping those feet under the table. Reserve your spot here.
For the ultimate Mother’s Day treat, indulge her with a massage, facial or beauty treatment at Third Space Spa. Meanwhile there’s nothing quite like having a catch up while getting your nails done – head to London Grace for a manicure and a glass of fizz to celebrate. Finally, don’t forget your hair – book a blow dry at Jon Hala, Toni&Guy or seanhanna.
Where To Eat This Mother’s Day
If you’ve yet to check out Hawskmoor Wood Wharf, the eco-friendly floating pavilion in Canary Wharf’s new riverside neighbourhood, Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity. Gently rising and falling with the tide, the main restaurant at dock-level is joined by a 120-seat waterside bar, The Lowback, where you can have a pre- or post-dinner drink. The menu options are indulgent; think scallops, smoked salmon, Devon crab, lobster, carpaccio, halibut, monkfish, steak and Chateaubriand. Book your table Book your table here.
Big appetites won’t be disappointed with Ibérica Canary Wharf’s Mothering Sunday offering, a seven-course seasonal menu featuring some of the restaurant’s iconic tapas dishes including its jamón croquetas, Spanish cheeses and cured meats and lamb shoulder to share, to name but a few, while no Spanish feast would be complete without its churros and chocolate.

For views to remember, Pergola on the Wharf is worthy of a special mention for Mother’s Day thanks to the vistas from the northern dock. Sunday lunch features meat sourced from high-welfare farms, fresh local vegetables, crispy rosemary roast potatoes and fluffy Yorkshire puddings.
