EU Open House Day at the British Embassy
Tentative Date/Time

Please be on the lookout around the weekend of Saturday, May 9, when the European Embassies throughout Washington DC will open their doors to the general public for the EU’s Open House Day.

Starting at 10:00 am, the British Embassy will host an interactive and family-friendly bazaar celebrating UK sport, culture, and tradition. Be sure to arrive early to avoid the queues. 


Join us on 10 May to celebrate UK culture, heritage, innovation and creativity: a bit of everything that makes Britain GREAT.

Each day, the dedicated staff at the British Embassy in Washington work to cultivate and promote the special cultural, creative, business, defence and trade ties we share with the United States.

From 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, the embassy will open its doors to the public for EU Open House Day, where those ties and the special relationship will be displayed for the public. See for yourself why the UK remains a fantastic destination for travel, study and business investment. Join us as we celebrate UK culture, heritage, innovation and creativity: a bit of everything that makes Britain GREAT.

Buses will be available to ride from embassy to embassy. For more information about the bus route or EU Day visit
