The Embassy of Nepal in London is the diplomatic mission of Nepal in the United Kingdom.

The building was erected in 1863-65 for Samuel Morton Peto by the architect James Murray and is a Grade II listed building. In 2013 there were rumours that the Nepali government were looking to sell the embassy for an anticipated £100 million, citing the huge cost of essential repair work; this caused outrage amongst the Nepali community in Britain.
