The British embassy is located at 3100 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington D.C., DC 20008.

The embassy is situated in a compound that is home to both the ambassador’s residence and the old and new chanceries. It was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens to resemble an English country manor, with the old chancery facing the street. The British government was the first nation to build an embassy in the area that would later become known as Embassy Row. Outside the British ambassador’s residence stands a statue of Winston Churchill.

Like all the embassies of all other European Union member-states, the flag of the European Union flies alongside the national flag. The British Embassy is notable for having the European flag flying lower, rather than at the same level, as the Union Jack.
