As embassies are diplomatic representations of a country's government in other countries, there is no British embassy in London. However, the United Kingdom has a embassy in Washington D.C. and multiple consulates all over the U.S. Individuals can contact the embassy or the consulates in person or by phone.
The British Embassy is located in 3100 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington D.C. 20008. The embassy's phone number is 202 588 6500. The phone line is available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. The embassy warns that public access is only available by appointment. The facility has the necessary equipment to cater for disabled visitors.
American citizens can contact the embassy or the consulates to learn more about the United Kingdom, schedule a press meeting with British officials and receive help when establishing business relations with a British company. As of 2015, the U.K. does not require American citizens to apply for a tourist visa and grants access into the country to American citizens with valid passports.
British expatriates living in the United States can also contact the embassy or one of the consulates to receive help. By contacting either type of institution, British expatriates can receive support in emergencies, learn more about transferring funds from the U.K. and acquire replacement travel documents in the case of a stolen passport. Some of the British consulates in the United States are located in Boston, Los Angeles, Cleveland, Madison and Las Vegas.
