List of ambassadors of the United Kingdom to Guinea
The Republic of Guinea (formerly known as French Guinea) declared its independence from France on 2 October 1958, and the then UK ambassador to Liberia, Guy Clarke, was also accredited to Guinea in 1959 until the first resident ambassador arrived in 1960. In 1965 the mission was briefly combined with Mali before a break in diplomatic relations; when relations were resumed in 1970 the mission was combined with Senegal until 2000 and with Sierra Leone until 2003.
