The Embassy of Georgia Changes London Address

The Embassy of Georgia to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has changed its premises and moved to its own building. The new address of the Embassy is 20 St George’s Square, Pimlico, London, SW1V 2HP.

It is somewhat symbolic that the Embassy of Georgia is now located on St George’s Square, in the heart of a central and historical part of London, the City of Westminster, St George being the patron saint of Georgia and England. The Embassy is near distinguished political, religious and historical places (the Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, etc.) of the receiving state.

The owner of the new premises of the Embassy is the Georgian state, and at this moment London is the only city in the world where Georgians have their own church, the Georgian Orthodox Cathedral Church of the Nativity of Our Lord, and where the Georgian Embassy owns its premises, both of which demonstrate the special relations and strategic partnership between Georgia and the UK.

The issue of changing the premises of the Embassy of Georgia in London became particularly relevant in 2016. In 2018, as a result of active efforts of the Embassy and with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, the Ministry of Finance of Georgia and former Prime Minister Mamuka Bakhtadze, a new building for the Embassy was bought and a relevant agreement was signed.

Now, the Embassy of Georgia in London has new and proper infrastructure that ensures safety compliance, a high level consular service for citizens, as well as more opportunities to organize events to promote cultural and business ties.

In addition, in order to promote Georgia and raise awareness about the country, the Embassy intends to participate in campaigns relevant to diplomatic and other communities in London, such as gender equality, digital diplomacy, sustainable development, environment protection, and more.
