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.
