Posh manor-house living isn't only for characters on period-piece TV shows. A 16th-century mansion in north London is opening its arms to 21st-century guests with a package that cuts 40% off current pricing.
Check in to Hendon Hall Hotel any night through January for $154 (£95) per night, and receive these upper-crust accompaniments:
Shady terraced gardens and a commanding brick colonnade greet guests on the patio. Inside, chandeliers, silk drapery and beamed ceilings telegraph old-world elegance. Throughout its rich history, the building has hosted earls, famous 18th-century actors and the English soccer team during their 1966 World Cup victory.
In the leafy Hendon neighborhood, the hotel is near Hampstead Heath, Wembley and the Hendon Central tube station, which takes riders into central London.
Note: Prices will be quoted in British pounds. Bookings are prepaid and non-refundable.
