Next month three grand Embassy buildings in London will be opening their doors for rare public tours.

On show will be the principal rooms of the French ambassador’s residence, Danish embassy and residence and the home of the Portuguese ambassador.


The French Ambassador’s Residence

The French and Portuguese embassies are of the grand opulent style, while the Danish might be more interesting, as it is a more modern 1970s aesthetic.

Tours last an hour, and unlike the tours of the Canadian High Commission, photography is forbidden.

In fact, it’s interesting that these three tours need photo id and a host of other conditions, whereas others are far more relaxed about such things.

Tours take place on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th September, are free and can be booked here.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
