This is a chance to see inside one of London’s key 20th Century buildings, by this celebrated Danish architect, Arne Jacobsen.

The tours are part of the National Trust’s Europe & Us programme.

“The 1970s Danish embassy and residence is the last great work by the Danish architect and designer, Arne Jacobsen, who also built St Catherine’s College, Oxford, and had a transformative impact on the Scandinavian design revolution of the mid-20th Century.”
