London is an expensive place and there is no question, to get the most from the city you need to have money; a lot of money. With the finest wines, food, hotels, cars, clothes and jewellery on offer, without exaggerating, one could easily spend one hundred thousand pounds a day.

The BBC recently calculated that to burn through a £1m lottery win as a 30 year old you would need to spend around £60,000 a day. That's not possible We hear you say. Well if you don't believe us and you have your stack ready then here are our recommendations for the best of the best when visiting London for a weekend.

5 Star Hotels & Luxury Apartments

London has some of the finest hotels in the world. It also has some of the most amazing apartments so if you have the budget then you will be living a lifestyle more luxurious than any balling rap video. If you are used to the lifestyle that is not going to mean much to you but it doesn't mean that you won't be impressed by your accommodation in London.

If you were going to budget yourself you could go for one of the most luxurious rentals available on the rental market.

If you are going to require your own private butler and twenty four seven Rolls Royce and chefs on call then there are hotel suites just for you.

London's Best Restaurants

London has some of the best restaurants in the world. Whatever you fancy eating there is a fancy restaurant for you.

So where to eat. Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester is a great choice as a 3 Michelin starred restaurant.

High-end Bars & Nightclubs

London has no shortage of flashy bars and nightclubs to waste your hard earned money at. If you want to have a truly "rockstar" night out London is one of the best places to do it. Be warned though, it is addictive getting that much attention.

Things To Do & Places to Visit

There are lots of great free and cheap things to do in London but if you do have the cash then even more doors open to you in terms of possibilities.

Taking a helicopter flight over London is an amazing way to see the city.

Shops & Shopping

London is a mecca for shoppers, particularly wealthy Arab shoppers ironically. Selfridges, Harrods and Fortnum & Mason are the most well known department stores. Each has plenty of expensive goodies and clothes to spoil yourself with.


If you are going for the ultimate luxury weekend in London then us suggesting a bus or catching a tube train is probably not going to work. You are probably thinking Rolls Royce, Ferrari or perhaps a stretched limo.

If you like to flash the cash and have had a great weekend in London recently we want to hear about it. Not only can you earn London points, which you probably don't need, you can at least let other live vicariously through your experiences.
