The Apostolic Nuncio represents the Holy Father to the Church in the UK. His role is equivalent to that of an ambassador, representing the Holy See to the UK Government - the Apostolic Nuncio to the Court of St. James's.
The current Apostolic Nuncio to Great Britain is His Excellency Archbishop Claudio Gugerotti. The Apostolic Nunciature is the building where the Nuncio’s offices and residence are located. It can be found in Wimbledon, South West London. It was established on 17 January 1982 – formerly the Apostolic Delegation (established 21 November 1938).
