The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and this Embassy are keen to ensure that their buildings and services are fully accessible to disabled members of the public. Wherever possible, we have made our buildings and services accessible. Sometimes however, this is not possible due to security or other restrictions. In these situations we will endeavour to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people. To assist disabled visitors, we have set out below details of disabled access at this Embassy. We hope this information is helpful.

Location and access
The British Embassy is located at 192 Hayarkon Street, corner of Arlozorov Street in Tel Aviv (opposite the Tel Aviv Hilton hotel).
Several car parks are located nearby, albeit for a fee. As the area is extremely congested, we recommend that you take a taxi or use public transport.
