Once you get to London, it is absolutely necessary to visit either a ballet, an opera house, or a theater show as this is home to some of the best performers in the world. Each ticket will give you an experience for about $262 per person. However, you can book the private boxes for you and three other friends which can run you into the higher 4 figures.
8. Intercontinental Park Lane Royal Suite
After a busy day, you can unwind in style at one of the finest hotels in London: the Intercontinental Park Lane Royal Suite.

9. Drink Champagne at the Park Lane Club
Take a stroll down to the Park Lane Club, where you will find ancient champagnes worth $10,500 each. Since a single bottle consists of 15 liters, that basically translates to $700 per liter. Harrods, on the other hand, sells their picnic trinkets for around $45,000.
10. Luxurious Cup of Tea at The Dorchester
As expensive as it comes, you need to understand that these are not accompanied with hot water: you have to take it home and blend with your own lime-scaled kettle. The two unique tea items, however, are sure to wow the drinker. The limited edition bag, on the other hand, comes with 280 diamonds tailored into it. This goes a long way towards bringing out the flavor, along with the two sugars and milk you will be adding.
