The Embassy of Finland in London is the diplomatic mission of Finland in the United Kingdom.[1]

The Grade II listed building was built by Thomas Cubitt in the 1830s and had many occupants until it became the Finnish embassy in 1975.[2]

Finland also maintains a Trade Centre at 149 Hammersmith Road, Hammersmith.[3]

A protest was held outside the embassy in 2011 by people alleging that the then-Prime Minister Mari Kiviniemi's election campaign had been part-funded by the fur industry.[4]
