Overview

The Old Admiralty Buildings is Grade II listed building complex in Whitehall, London SW1.

Home to Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

The Old Admiralty Building has housed some of the most famous figures in history and literature, including former Prime Minister Winston Churchill when he was First Lord of the Admiralty, and James Bond author - and former naval intelligence officer - Ian Fleming, whose renowned ‘Room 39' was located inside the walls during World War II. It was also home to Admiral ‘Blinker' Hall's Naval Intelligence Department in World War I and later occupied by Lord Mountbatten when he became Fourth Sea Lord in 1950.[1]

The Department for Education is due to move in the building in 2017 after BAM Construct UK has renovated it. The relocation from Sanctuary Buildings in Great Smith Street will save the taxpayer nearly £19 million a year. The DfE has already cut its estate costs from £63 million to £45 million a year since 2010 and reduced the number of its properties from 12 to six.
