Check into The Rubens, a five-star hotel near Buckingham Palace for two nights with a dinner, breakfasts, and afternoon tea included

The Rubens takes its illustrious London address seriously, mirroring all the grandeur you'd expect from a hotel that overlooks Buckingham Palace. From the smartly-dressed doormen who doff their hats to guests to the opulent furnishings in the lobby, this place is every inch the traditional five-star hotel.

Your two-night stay includes a three-course dinner in the English Grill - where theatrical dishes are prepared in an open kitchen by a team of expert chefs - and afternoon tea in The Palace Lounge. The lounge overlooks the Royal Mews, a lovely spot for people-watching as you indulge in scones, cakes, pastries, mini sandwiches, and cups of tea served in fine china.

On both mornings, a Full English breakfast is served, the perfect way to start a busy day in London. You're just a short stroll from many London landmarks, including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and the London Eye.
