The Embassy of Belgium in London is Belgium's diplomatic mission to the United Kingdom.[1] It is located at 17 Grosvenor Crescent, having moved from its historical location in Eaton Square in 2006.[2]

The government of Flanders also maintains a representative office at 1a Cavendish Square, Marylebone[1] and the Belgian Ambassador's Residence is located on Upper Belgrave Street, Belgravia.

The embassy building was designed by George Basevi in the 1860s.[2] It is Grade II listed.[3]

As of 2014 Guy Trouveroy is the ambassador,[4] replacing Johan C. Verbeke.[5]
