We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Hungary. The British Embassy in Budapest provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Hungary.

Our work covers a range of issues including policy, defence and security, trade and investment.

We promote bilateral political and defence relations between the UK and Hungary, and work closely with the Hungarian government to address international issues of concern through cooperation and projects between the UK and Hungarian partners.

Our UK Trade and Investment section supports British exports to, and investment in Hungary, providing a wide range of services to both British and Hungarian businesses.

Through our public diplomacy section we provide information about Britain and British government policies to the media and to the general public. We also offer press, radio and television services for journalists.
