Disabled access

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the 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 the embassy. We hope this information is helpful.

General physical access

Access to the embassy compound and buildings is constrained by security considerations and the current layout of access routes and facilities. However, reception and security staff are alert to the requirements of disabled visitors and will endeavour to ensure that disabled visitors are provided with appropriate assistance during their visit to ensure that they have access to embassy services.

  • Although most entrances are generally clear and unobstructed, wheelchair access from Wireless Road is not possible through the usual public access route so wheelchair users will be assisted to use an alternative gate.
