The European Parliament Information Office and the European Commission Representation in the UK have moved into shared premises in Central London's Smith Square, a stone's throw from the Houses of Parliament.
The building will be the first port of call for any citizen seeking information about the two institutions and the EU in general, and for organisations that are interested in organizing discussions, meetings and events with an EU theme.
To celebrate the official opening of Europe House, the European Parliament and the European Commission have organised a range of events in December.
