We all need some quality mother-daughter time, and here at Winged Boots we think the best way to have that is getting away together.

It's time to ditch the quick cuppa drop in or repeated dinner spot for something far more exciting. How about a helicopter ride over New York, brunch in Barcelona, celeb spotting in LA or wine tasting in Douro? You both deserve a holiday that you'll be talking about for years to come. And for those with sisters and daughters - bring them along for an even more memorable multi-generational family trip.

It's time to co-ordinate your diaries and let us help you plan the perfect getaway. We have a feeling it’ll be the first of many.

Shopping in New York City

STAY: You can shop 'til you drop with a stay at The Peninsula New York, with it's excellent location close to Fifth Avenue. And once your done treating yourselves, head to the hotel spa for some additional TLC. Contemporary rooms with an Asian twist will be the perfect retreat for you both after a long day in the city. 

DINE: Enjoy breakfast and a show at Ellen’s Stardust Diner where you can tuck into pancakes whilst being serenaded by Broadway performers. Looking for fine dining? The iconic Eleven Madison Park is renowned for its exquisite set menu and high-ceilinged art-deco space. 

DO: Take in the famous New York skyline from above with a private helicopter ride. Sip on a glass of fizz as you take in breathtaking views of the city that never sleeps. It's a once in a lifetime experience that you'll both treasure forever.

Culture in Abu Dhabi

STAY: You'll feel like royalty as you walk through the grand entrance of Emirates Palace. Rolex clocks and Swarovski encrusted door handles are just some of the fine finshes that you can expect from this beautiful resort. Be sure to delight in a traditional afternoon tea at Le Café finished with the famous Camelccino, a coffee made from camel milk.

DINE: 63 floors above the skyline, enjoy an immersive dining experience at Le Petit Chef at Ray's Grill inside Conrad Abu Dhabi.
