The Embassy of Ethiopia in London is the diplomatic mission of Ethiopia in the United Kingdom.. It is located in South Kensington next to the embassy of Iran..Although the postcode SW7 mainly covers South Kensington, some parts of Knightsbridge are also covered..Kensington Road houses one of the remaining 13 Cabmen's Shelters used by London's taxi drivers as a place to buy food and drink..The nearest Tube stations are South Kensington and Gloucester Road, linking the area directly to the main railway termini and to the political, commercial and financial hearts of the city in Westminster, the West End and the City of Londo...



The house was bought by the Independent Tele-Vision Authority in July 1955 who used it as their HQ for six years.. The work of the college was disrupted on the morning of 30 April 1980 with the onset of the Iranian Embassy Siege.. The embassy was next to the college at 16 Prince's Gate.. The college was evacuated, except for two administrators who were retired naval officers. The siege lasted for 5 days..The college sold the building in 2010 "for an undisclosed fee" and moved its HQ in Euston Square..Like the buildings at the other end, no.14 is slightly set forward from the rest of the terrace. All the houses in the terrace have 5 storeys and a basement, and all are stuccoed..A permanent diplomatic mission is typically known as an embassy, and the head of the mission is known as an ambassador..Impermanence is intimately associated with the doctrine of anatta, according to which things have no fixed nature, essence, or self..8 ambassadors lived in the house...
