If you, like me, are an American living in London, you’ll know that finding ways to celebrate Thanksgiving without having most of your family around can present a bit of a challenge.

After all, if there aren’t at least three generations sitting around the table together, is it even Thanksgiving?

Well, I’m here to tell you that yes, it is.

Whether you’ve got family with you on this side of the pond or you’re having more of a Friendsgiving this year, here are places you can go in London to keep the spirit of Thanksgiving alive.
