Welcome from the Ambassador
Welcome to the official website of the Embassy of Switzerland in the United Kingdom.
Here you will find information about events and activities organised by the Embassy throughout the UK as well as important travel and visa information for people planning on travelling to Switzerland, and other relevant facts and figures about the country.
Switzerland and the UK have a long and strong shared history, with a common heritage of political and economic liberty. As Ambassador, it is my privilege to see the continuing strength of these ties across all parts of the United Kingdom, from the fields of culture and sport to academic research and political dialogue. In an increasingly globalised world, our activities here at the Embassy aim to highlight both the distinctive specificities of Swiss culture and society, and the fruitful collaborations and exchanges we can share throughout the UK as part of our public diplomacy programme.
I hope you find this website a useful resource and an illustration of the enduring nature of British-Swiss friendship.
Ambassador of Switzerland to the United Kingdom
