Discover the very best of Yorkshire Attractions with your family this Mother’s Day weekend with a fantastic assortment of events happening across Yorkshire.

Among a whole host of attractions, treat your Mum to a trip along the River Ouse. At City Cruises York enjoy Afternoon Tea on-board a cruise on the Ouse or take advantage of their online offer, as each Mum will receive a glass of prosecco and bag of chocolates when tickets are booked in advance.

Alternatively, if taking to the water is not your thing, treat your Mum to Afternoon Tea at Lottie’s Coffee Lounge located in Tropical Butterfly House. Visitors can enjoy spectacular displays, featuring birds of prey, parrots and charismatic mammals or explore the indoor rain-forest home to butterflies, birds, bats, crocodiles and creepy-crawlies from around the world.

Mums go free on Mother’s Day weekend at Cannon Hall Farm. With a packed agenda of activities, including sheep and ferret racing, tractor rides and the chance to watch the farm’s sheep adapt to motherhood post lambing season, it’s an experience not to be missed.

Or spoil your Mum with a delicious three course meal at The Deep, at their Two Rivers Restaurant in the heart of the aquarium surrounded by stunning marine life. Explore the exhibits on the restaurant floor between courses or after your meal.
