In the last few years, we Brits have adopted some of America’s best traditions, Black Friday, Halloween and it looks like we have hijacked another.

Thanksgiving (23 November 2017) is a close rival to Christmas in the hearts of Americans, with both holidays being a time for family, giving thanks and sharing gifts. In the UK, a number of restaurants are putting on Thanksgiving menus and feasts so you don’t have to travel across the Atlantic to celebrate the all-American holiday.

Here’s our list of the best places to celebrate Thanksgiving in the Capital.
