Yup....240/120 transformer should do it. Regs says only BS approved gear should be fitted though........your US fitting probably won't fall into this category.

Not thick.....
the regs are here to prevent people being killed or electrocuted by poor installation methods and equipment. Everything electrical need to conform with the regs in order to be legal and more importantly SAFE.
Seek some proper advice from a qualified competent electrician...they should keep you straight....and alive......
