The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has the responsibility of promoting British interests abroad. The building was designed by George Gilbert Scott. He had an amicable partnership with Matthhew Digby Wyatt, the India Office’s Surveyor, who designed and built the interior of the India Office. 

 The FCO was designed as ‘a kind of national palace or drawing room for the nation’ with the use of rich decoration to impress foreign visitors.

We now have an opportunity to visit the building on a guided tour given by a former member of the FCO staff.
