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

The building was erected in 1863-65 for Samuel Morton Peto by the architect James Murray[2] and is a Grade II listed building.[3] Nepal was given the building as a gift from the British government in 1937 due to the ongoing help given to the British Army by the Gurkhas.[4] In 2013 there were rumours that the Nepali government were looking to sell the embassy for an anticipated £100 million, citing the huge cost of essential repair work; this caused outrage amongst the Nepali community in Britain.[5]
