Welcome from the Consulate-General

Welcome to the website of the British Consulate General for New England, part of the UK's network in the US.

Phil Budden, who arrived in late August, is the UK's new Consul General.

There is a strong relationship between the United Kingdom and New England, built on the wealth of our many historic, academic, business and cultural connections. But this relationship is also firmly based in the present, and a shared commitment to scientific innovation and technological advance.

We are proud to promote British excellence in this dynamic part of the United States, working with New England's commercial, scientific and political communities to stimulate the exchange of ideas and the development of our common interests.

Please explore the many features of our website.
