A new £750million US Embassy has been unveiled by the Thames.

A general view of the new US Embassy in south London before it opens for business in January 2018.

Embassy staff are moving from their former offices in Grosvenor Square to a distinctive cube building in Nine Elms, Battersea, surrounded by a pond and topped with solar panels.

The building will be a workplace for American diplomats and home to a contingent of US Marines, from this month. Despite terror attacks at Westminster Bridge and London Bridge in 2017, there is no perimeter fence around the new building – there is only a pond, not a moat, to stop unauthorised persons getting too close. US Ambassador Robert “Woody” Johnson, who opened the building on December 13, said he hoped President Donald Trump would come to London for its official dedication.
