The Foreign and Commonwealth Office will be throwing open its doors as part of the Open House London architectural festival this weekend.
Every year, the FCO on King Charles Street, London, welcomes thousands of visitors during the Open House Weekend to hear about the formation of the office, the historic Fine rooms, the impressive architecture and the symbolic importance of this building in Britain’s past.
Visitors will also have a chance to meet FCO staff and to hear about life in the FCO today.
Visitors are welcome to come to the FCO between 10.00 and 17.00 (last entry 16.30) on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 September.

This year our network of Embassies and High Commissions are also virtually taking part in Open House London weekend. Over the course of the weekend they will be posting photos of their buildings onto Twitter and Instagram using #FCOopenhouse. Unfortunately, they will not be physically open as part of Open House.
Open House London, an Open-City initiative, celebrates all that is best about the capital’s buildings, places and neighbourhoods.
Every September, it gives a unique opportunity to get out and under the skin of London’s amazing architecture, with over 700 buildings of all kinds opening their doors to everyone - all for free.
