Being away from home can be difficult at the best of times, not to mention during the holiday season. Maybe you’ve recently moved away from home and you’re feeling a little homesick or you’ve been dealt with a lethal dosage of the winter blues. But what if you’re an American expat in the capital searching for a way to celebrate Thanksgiving in style? This article will go into a little bit more detail about how London is the best UK city to celebrate Thanksgiving – you don’t even need to be an American to enjoy it.
Large American Culture
According to figures from the Office of National Statistics, there’s just under 200,000 American citizens living throughout the UK. Whether those American expats are settled with families or they’ve come here for work, what is important is that all of them will be searching for the perfect way to spend Thanksgiving.
Thankfully then, London’s multi-cultural and vibrant setting means there’s now many restaurants and establishments offering Thanksgiving celebrations – the American way. London provides the opportunity to connect with other Americans in the capital who may be missing their loved ones back home just like you. Failing that, you can always fly back home for the holiday season.
Loads of hotels and restaurants
Owing to London’s status as one of the most vibrant capital cities in the world, there’s always going to be an abundance of amazing restaurants and classy hotels for you to stay at if you’re looking to celebrate Thanksgiving in the capital. The Dorsett Hotel, Shepherds Bush places you in the heart of the city, in close proximity to all the main attractions, bars and restaurants.
Once you’ve had your Thanksgiving meal you’re going to need a lie down – and there’s no place better to do that than the Dorsett Hotel. Additionally, because Thanksgiving isn’t as celebrated in the UK as much as the US, you should be able to find cheaper out of season deals, but we’ll go into that in a second.
Low season means attractions are cheaper
When it comes to Christmas in the capital, it’s expected that restaurants, hotels and attractions are going to put their prices up to make the most of the seasonal offerings and the influx of tourists in the city. One great thing about spending Thanksgiving in London is that for most of the UK, Thanksgiving comes during the low season, this means that any bars and attractions will likely offer cheaper deals, and you’ll likely be able to find the best deals on hotels during your stay, whether you’re visiting or just looking for a luxury night away from your London home.
Whether you’re an American expat looking to celebrate Thanksgiving in London, or you’re any other person who fancies joining in with the famous holiday, London provides you with everything you need to have an amazing time. From hotels to restaurants, attractions to bars, London simply has everything when it comes to soaking up everything Thanksgiving has to offer.
