It may be the coldest time of the year in London but let the festive spirit fill you with warmness. The Brits, although not having traditionally celebrated Thanksgiving, still love to extend a very warm welcome to all our friends across the pond and invite you to wonderful Thanksgiving celebrations, lavish meals and festive fun here in London town...

Thanksgiving London style

Let the UK be your home from home this November and come and enjoy Thanksgiving London style. Lavish lunches, roaring fires and celebratory tipples- we hope to see you here!

Borough Market

A perfect Thanksgiving day out

Start your day with a Majestic visit to the Tower of London and the Crown Jewels. The Crown Jewels, part of the Royal Collection and still regularly used by The Queen, include some of the most extraordinary diamonds in the world. The Crown Jewels are the most powerful symbol of the British Monarchy and hold deep religious and cultural significance in our nation's history The Medieval Palace at the Tower of London has fabulous interiors and was once used by medieval kings and queens during their frequent but short visits to their most important fortress.

A Visit to Borough Market

Take a leisurely walk over the bridge to London's finest food market. As well as being one of London's most important places to trade food, this unique corner of London truly captures the rich culinary history that London has. Stroll around the market and discover the tastes, aromas, beautifully fresh textures and seasonal delicacies the market has to offer. There are regularly demonstrations and pop up kitchens and you will never be short of something to look at! On Thanksgiving, you can be sure to have some treats lined up. Wander around the beautiful food stores and nibble here and there- save yourself for later!

Wander the Festive Southbank

Following a light lunch, meander down London's festive Southbank. En route, see the Tate Modern, Shakespeare's Globe and the wonderful Christmas markets which line the Southbank during the Festive period. London is alive with festive spirit when the markets pop up in November and we highly recommend a visit! The Southbank market is fantastic for all ages- whilst wandering around, look out for unique gifts and mementos. The traditional Christmas music and nonstop entertainment in every corner is a great day out.

End the walk with a flight on the London Eye!

The London Eye is without a doubt a major feature on London's skyline. It is the world's highest observation wheel, with 32 capsules, each weighing 10 tonnes, and holding up to 25 people. On a clear day, you can even see as far as Windsor!
