Brexit: no-one knows what it may cost the economy. But what we do know is that a Brexit-themed holiday will set Americans back almost $6,000 (£4,640).

The New York Times is offering a small group three different tours to experience what life might be like after Britain leaves the EU on a trip called "Brexit means Brexit".

Over six days and five nights, those on the vacation will be able to walk around Westminster and the City and find out what the implications of Brexit could be for the UK's capital.

The price tag of $5,995 implies a lavish time in London, and includes a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament, which costs roughly $32 if bought privately.

While in parliament the tour group will be able to speak to a member of the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Details of who the tourists will meet won't be confirmed until closer to the time, though trip organisers say the aim is to get the "most senior" politician available.

Afterwards, the group will eat a traditional pub lunch and have a pint before watching a debate in either the Commons or Lords from the public gallery, which is usually free to anyone.

The next day of the trip will involve another walking tour, this time around parts of the City, to see the Guildhall and the Gherkin, Cheesegrater, and Walkie Talkie towers.

There will be a "pause for refreshments" in one of these buildings, which wouldn't ordinarily set you back too much unless you order the Dom Pérignon Vintage Rosé, 2003, which according to the Sky Pod menu costs just over $850.

There will then be a bespoke guided tour of City Hall. Tours of City Hall don't currently exist, though you can do something similar for free by simply walking around the building of your own accord.

Here, however, the paying tourists will learn about housing and immigration in the Brexit-destined city.

The next day will focus on foreign affairs. It will include a talk on the subject followed by a "traditional afternoon tea complete with scones and clotted cream", after which the group will join a political historian who will help put British politics in context within the EU, global economics and international affairs.

The next day is particularly expensive considering an overall price tag in the thousands; a visit to the British Library, which is free, and a tour of the Supreme Court, which is charged at less than $10 per head. This will be followed by a Q&A with a legal expert on Britain's exit from the EU.

For the duration of the trip, guests will stay at the 4-star St. Ermin's Hotel in Westminster.

So assuming all these costs are correct – that means that the foreign affairs talk, legal talk, chat with an MP and Lord as well as travel and accommodation have been valued (with a bit of leeway) at more than $5,500.

On top of this, not all meals are included, so expect additional costs in excess of $200.
