Celebrating Mothering Sunday is a tradition dating back to the 16th century when worshipers went ‘a-mothering’ to their mother church on Laetare Sunday, the Latin word for the fourth Sunday in Lent. The traditional purple vestments and altar cloths are replaced with rose coloured ones and flowers are placed on the altar, and once again the melodic sounds of the organ can be heard after their traditional absence through Lent.
Based in Royal Windsor, the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel is ideally situated to explore the towns of Maidenhead, Marlow, Ascot and Egham, where celebrations are being planned to celebrate mums, and grandmothers across the county.
The National Trust is offering free entry to Cliveden House Hotel for a free wine tasting between noon and 3pm. You can find details on the National Trust website. Free entry is also offered at the Claremont Landscape garden. This 18th century garden has been created through the work of many famous gardeners such as Sir John Vanbrugh and ‘Capability’ Brown, all of whom have stamped their own individual styles on this wonderful landscape, once a playground for princesses. Further details can be found on the National Trust pages.
As a perfect match to the National Trust events, bring your mothers and grand-mothers to the Sir Christopher Wren Hotel where we are offering a sumptuous three-course meal with coffee, petit fours and a gift for those special women in your life. Accompanied by music from our Jazz Trio, this special meal is offered for the reasonable price of £34.50 per person (£16.95 for children 4-12, children under 4 eat free).
