November 06, 2005|By NEW YORK TIMES NEWS SERVICE

The three townhouses that make up the luxury hotel 51 Buckingham Gate in London once did duty as guest houses for Queen Victoria.

But from Nov. 18 through Dec. 18, a couple booking the Christmas Shopping weekend package can be modern-day guests for $440 a night (normally $598, at $1.84 to the pound), including breakfast and a butler to help with packing.

Accommodations are in 12 deluxe junior suites.
