The Embassy of Eritrea in London is the diplomatic mission of Eritrea in the United Kingdom.[1] It is the eastern-most embassy in the city (ignoring the Mission of Somaliland), being far removed from most other embassies which are predominantly located in Central or West London.

The embassy has seen several protests: in 2011[2] and 2013[3] Christian Solidarity Worldwide gathered outside the embassy to protest at the alleged persecution of Christians in the country and in 2013 the embassy was temporarily occupied by opponents of Eritrean President Isaias Afewerki.[4]
