The Embassy of Denmark in London, or formally the Royal Danish Embassy, is the diplomatic mission of Denmark in the United Kingdom.[1] It occupies a large, modern building designed by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen which it shares with the Embassy of Iceland, completed in 1977. The Royal Danish Embassy houses the Danish-UK Chamber of Commerce founded in 1989, and also hosts the Representation of the Faroes in London since 2002.[2]

In 2006 there were protests outside the embassy following the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy; a number of people were later arrested in connection with the protest.[3]
