In addition to the Embassy of Finland in London, Finland has Honorary Consuls based in 26 other cities in the United Kingdom.

The Section for Public Diplomacy briefs journalists based in the UK, organises media visits to Finland, arranges media coverage for official visits, promotes the image of Finland in the United Kingdom and monitors UK media coverage of Finland as well as international politics.
