Welcome to London, home of the Queen and center of England's millenniums of history. Westminster hangs over the Thames, Big Ben chimes, stern-faced guards change places outside Buckingham Palace. London can't help but deliver on its promise of famous sights. But after landing in the capital, there's a more relaxed way to get acquainted with the luxury. You'll be greeted at the airport and transferred to a five-star hotel in the heart of the city. Recuperate, reenergize with some high tea in the lavish restaurant and get dressed up for a night at the opera. The Royal Opera House is one of London's premier gems, a building of elegance and excess that comes to life when orchestral strings reverberate off the walls. Spend the evening enjoying a performance before post-opera dinner reservations at an upscale London restaurant.
