The 23 Best Places to Celebrate American Thanksgiving in London (2022)

Maybe you booked your tickets to London in November and didn’t realize it was going to be Thanksgiving – or maybe you saw a screamin’ flight deal and wondered whether it was worth it to miss the holiday in the U.S. to save on a trip to the best city on earth.

Whatever the reason, it turns out that Thanksgiving (late November) is a great time to visit London! Sure, the late autumn/early winter weather isn’t as nice as the summertime, but there are also way fewer crowds – especially of fellow American travelers. There are still plenty of interesting things to do around this time of year (even if it rains), including the classics like museums, markets, and pubs to visit for a pint. But there are also seasonal activities, giving you a teaser of the holiday cheer: the ice rink at the Natural History Museum is already open, Oxford Street’s light display is already on, and you can stroll through Hyde Park’s Winter Wonderland with a mug of mulled wine.

Thanksgiving in Christmas Hero

Oh, and you don’t have to miss Thanksgiving entirely – as you’ll see in this post, there are a number of places that mark the American holiday with special menus featuring all your favorite dishes: roast turkey, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie included! (There are also some others that have creative fusion options, like an Indian interpretation, Creole cuisine, and New York-style cheesecake.)

If you’re sold on visiting London around Thanksgiving but have zero intentions of missing out on one of the best days of eating all year long, read on to discover all the best places offering special menus to mark Thanksgiving in London.
