You dip biscuits in your tea, are counting down the days 'til you'll be glued to the TV for the games, and spend way too much time perfecting your shepherd's pie recipe. In short: London's calling, and it's time to go home—or at least pay a visit.

Make it happen with this week's Escape from Premium Tours: a five-day, four-night stay on Fridays to Tuesdays for two ($1,298) in the heart of one of the world's most fascinating cities, named one of the best places to visit in 2012 by National Geographic Traveler.

You and your mate will shack up in style at the mod-luxe, brand-new Grange Tower Bridge Hotel, situated in a prime, central location near the famed Tower of London. Besides plush beds you'll want to sink right into, you'll find a gorgeous spa, indoor infinity pool, fully appointed health club, and free Wi-Fi.

Wake up each morning to a continental breakfast, then see the sights—including Westminster Abbey, where kings and queens have been coronated for centuries and where recently, Wills and Kate tied the knot—in style atop a vintage, open-top double-decker bus.

You'll refuel over fish and chips and a pint or two at renowned Knightsbridge pub the Tea Clipper. Take a cruise down the River Thames and check out the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace accompanied by the illuminating commentary of a professional guide. At night, you'll have two top-price tickets for your pick of a hit musical—"Chicago," "Billy Elliot," "Phantom of the Opera," "We Will Rock You," "Mamma Mia!," or "Wicked"—in the starry West End.

You'll also have plenty of time to hit the town on your own, whether it's stocking up on high-street accessories at Topshop; strolling the halls of the Tate Modern; sipping Pimm's Cup cocktails; or getting a taste of nose-to-tail guru Fergus Henderson's St. John Bar & Restaurant, which serves delicacies like braised lamb neck and lamb sweetbreads in addition to gastropub standards like gooey Welsh rarebit.

With more included than a certain British nanny could fit in her bottomless bag, the possibilities are endless—making this one British invasion you won't want to miss.

  • "One of the world’s most visited cities, London has something for everyone, from history to culture, art, grand museums, dazzling architecture, royalty, diversity, and irrepressible pizazz."
