The essential guide to planning a luxury weekend in London

London is the ultimate chic destination, with a wealth of high-end hotels, restaurants and bars all waiting for your patronage.
 
Book a luxury hotel
 
Whether you’re a Londoner or an out-of-towner, this is your chance to live the high life and relax in five-star surroundings. The Dorchester on Hyde Park is the ultimate in English elegance and luxury. 
 
A Superior King Room has a king-sized bed, a bathroom decked out in white marble, and comes with a welcome bottle of champagne. At anywhere from £400-700 for a Saturday night stay, it’s not cheap, but it is the ultimate in luxury.

Spend time at a spa
 
Pampering yourself with spa treatments exudes luxury. You can book a massage, facial, manicure and pedicure for a well-rounded visit that will leave you feeling relaxed with royalty treatment. 
 
The Four Seasons Hotel London at Park Lane is a spa in central London catering to celebrities and high-flying jetsetters. Its most popular treatments are the Four Hands Massage – £245 – and an extra-indulgent Gold Hydrating Facial at £175. Such luxurious treatments are deemed to be well worth the price tag.  
 
Eat at high-flying restaurants
 
Now that you’re staying in one of London’s premier hotels, you should be eating the equivalent in cuisine. Rhodes 24 is located on the twenty-fourth floor of Tower 42, one of London’s tallest buildings. As celebrity chef Gary Rhodes’s restaurant, it is Michelin-starred and offers upmarket, modern British cuisine with an incredible view over London. 
 
For a more experimental night out, try Notting Hill’s Supperclub. A full night of food and fun, dinner is served to guests reclining on white beds in the white-painted, converted warehouse. Sword swallowers and acrobats, as well as drag queens and dance acts complement the four-course meal. After supper comes the club, where a DJ takes over and plays music until late.  
 
See the best of London’s nightlife entertainment
 
To feel classically glamorous, rent a box at the Royal Opera House for one of their performances. With seasons including everything from the classic, like Verdi’s Nabucco to the modern, like David Bruce’s The Firework-Maker’s Daughter, there are shows for many different tastes. The Royal Opera House also features ballet performances.
 
If opera seems too old-school, try some of London’s best burlesque. Volupté on Norwich Street is one of Timeout London’s recommended burlesque nights and is said to present “some of the best burlesque in town.”
 
Make money from money
 
If you’re in the mood for higher stakes, you can play poker at the legendary Old Vic Grosvenor casino. It is one of the UK’s oldest casinos, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014. The poker room is iconic and offers a memorable visit, and the casino has an old-fashioned, classic feel.
