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

We work closely with the Danes on responding to the financial crisis, minimising the threat from terrorism, building a strong and stable EU and on creating peace and security in Afghanistan. We explain UK policies to the Danish government, non-government organisations and media. We also report Danish views and policies to the British government.

We support British defence interests in Denmark, including developing links between the British and Danish militaries. We deal with trade and investment issues including helping British companies do business in Denmark and Danish companies do business with Britain.

The embassy works closely with the British Council Denmark on educational and cultural issues and with VisitBritain who deal with tourist enquiries for the UK.
